Reachout Wireless Ohio
The number that is most important to Ohio’s economy and future is probably 18, the number of electoral votes the state has. For the third election in a row, the state of Ohio will play an important role in determining the occupant of the White House for the next 4 years. Therefore, we should expect there will be a lot of focus on the past economy and pledges for improvements in the future. The state itself has been lowering its unemployment rate steadily over the past year, and while it still has a way to go before it reaches its pre-recession levels, the state is making good progress.

If you qualify, you will be eligible to receive a free cell phone and monthly minutes without ever having to pay a fee or make a deposit.
