But the event was ejected from the Landing Event Center in suburban Loveland, Ohio, after a storm of complaints, venue general manager Jodi Taylor told the newspaper. Taylor said she had no idea the event would include Greene — and Vance was instructed to find another location.
“We just chose to respect it was a very emotional topic,” Taylor told the Enquirer. “People are passionate about what they believe. We were wrapping our heads around what was going on. We didn’t know there would be a guest.”
The Landing Event Center posted a politically neutral statement on Facebook, announcing the relocation of the event “due to tremendous interest,” and adding: “We appreciate everyone’s interest and concerns.” Taylor explained to the Enquirer: “It doesn’t matter what we do; we have both sides upset.”
Vance’s campaign claimed in a statement to the newspaper that the event was moved to the Cincinnati Marriott Northeast in Mason due to a large number of RSVPs.
Greene foes are now organizing against the event in Mason.
