Akron, Ohio felt the power of economic empowerment as Americans for Prosperity’s Prosperity is Possible national campaign tour hit the RubberDucks stadium.

Armed with baseball tickets, we stepped up to the plate, discussing inflation, soaring energy costs, and job creation with the community. Our goal? Hitting a home run for prosperity!

With the stadium as our backdrop, we hit the streets, handing out baseball tickets while talking about the impact of inflation on daily lives. Akron residents eagerly stepped up to bat, engaging in discussions about the need for proven solutions to tackle economic challenges.

In a symbolic play, state director Donovan O’Neil and his son, Conner, threw out the first pitch, exemplifying our dedication to nurturing a future where economic growth is a grand slam.
