Ohio's first District Court Judge, Patrick Fischer joins us for this important session.
Fischer is a member of the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission.
He will lead us through the issues being considered by this body of scholars.
The Ohio "Constitution" is the bedrock of our republic. Does it need to be changed? What exactly is being looked at?
We as citizens need to be aware of and be able to guard changes to it carefully!
