Celebrating 15 Years in Business!<br />

CW Community Plan approved<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

In a process started 18 months ago,<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> City Council has<br />

approved the city’s community plan.<br />

McKenna project manager Adam Cook<br />

said the process usually takes two years.<br />

“The amount of passion shown by this<br />

community, the amount of grit, and dedication<br />

speaks for a work product that will<br />

guide you for years to come; hopefully<br />

decades to come as it grows, as it evolves,<br />

as it develops,” said Cook.<br />

Council President Chuck Milliken said<br />

he is happy and thankful to be able to vote<br />

on the community plan’s passage before<br />

leaving council at the end of the year.<br />

“I encourage our new members of council<br />

to please support this moving forward,”<br />

said Milliken. “One of our concerns when<br />

we first started doing this was that it<br />

would be put on a shelf. Keep it moving forward.”<br />

To view a copy of the entire plan and<br />

results of community surveys, visit<br />

According to the plan, “The largest land<br />

use in <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> is undeveloped<br />

land that is either vacant or used for agriculture.<br />

These lands comprise 36 percent of<br />

the city’s total land area.”<br />

Approximately two percent of all land in<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> is designated as institutional–libraries,<br />

hospitals, churches,<br />

human service entities, rehab centers, senior<br />

housing and other similar uses.<br />

Municipal and public uses such as<br />

schools, city hall, and other city-owned<br />

buildings (excluding park land) make up<br />

six percent of the city’s land use. Thirteen<br />

percent of all general open space use<br />

encompasses parks, improved and unimproved<br />

parcels, pools, golf courses, etc.<br />

According to the plan, “The industrial<br />

campus category is intended to support<br />

local and regional employment. Areas<br />

given this designation should be locations<br />

for a mix of research, manufacturing, logistics<br />

and similar uses in a parklike, campus<br />

environment. While these businesses generate<br />

valuable revenue for the city, it is<br />

important that industrial campus areas be<br />

aesthetically pleasing for those who work<br />

there and for community members as a<br />

whole. With proper site planning and landscape<br />

design, these areas can coexist harmoniously<br />

with their surroundings.”<br />

strengths of the city, respondents cited<br />

IF IMPLANTS FAILS?<br />

A dental implant is inserted into<br />

the bone in order to support “permanent”<br />

dentures. In effect, it is a<br />

replacement for removable dentures.<br />

The technique is getting better<br />

each year. Records show that<br />

some implants have now lasted<br />

over 20 years.<br />

However, what if an implant fails?<br />

Would it leave your jaws in a worse<br />

state than if you had worn conventional<br />

dentures? The answer depends<br />

on three factors:<br />

1) How much bone was originally<br />

available, and should the implants<br />

have been done in the first place?<br />

2) How well were the implants inserted<br />

surgically and how well were<br />

the teeth made?<br />

Dr. Kelly<br />

3) How long have the failed implants<br />

remained in the mouth? If<br />

the patient was a suitable candidate<br />

to begin with, if everything<br />

was done correctly, and if the failed<br />

implant is removed as soon as possible,<br />

there should be little or no<br />

bone loss. Very often, another implant<br />

can be inserted at a later date.<br />

There is always the option for the<br />

patient to go back to wearing conventional<br />

dentures.<br />

Obetz’s Christmas Kickoff<br />

Continued from page 1<br />

regional location, workforce quality, local businesses<br />

and a healthy tax revenue. Citizens found a lack of<br />

strategic planning and a lack of diversity in industry to<br />

be weaknesses.<br />

Developing a diverse business community and synergies<br />

with companies investing regionally were identified<br />

as opportunities. Adjacent land potentially<br />

annexed to other communities, the unattractiveness to<br />

young workers and development competition were<br />

identified as threats to <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong>.<br />

Economic development priorities listed through<br />

public feedback include workforce housing; retail and<br />

business; entertainment; and annexation and land<br />

acquisition. Nearly half of community survey results<br />

indicated economic health and stability is a top priority.<br />

Other highlights of the community plan:<br />

•The top three objectives as far as community character<br />

and urban design are: The support of a system of<br />

organized and balanced land uses within the community<br />

that respects existing neighborhoods and open<br />

spaces; encouraging residential development that<br />

meets market demand by people of all ages, incomes<br />

The holiday season kicks off with Obetz’s Christmas<br />

Kickoff on Dec. 8 from 6-9 p.m. in Lancaster Park.<br />

Santa will be there for photos and there will be hot<br />

chocolate and cookies to enjoy. Ice skating may be<br />

available, weather depending.<br />

Kickstart your evening with tasty cookies and the<br />

rich taste of hot chocolate. These holiday treats are<br />

perfect for setting a cozy and festive mood, welcoming<br />

you to an evening filled with cheer and warmth.<br />

A highlight for younger visitors, the Santa Letter<br />

Station offers a magical experience. Children can write<br />

their Christmas wishes and send them directly to<br />

Santa.<br />

Dive into the spirit of creativity with Christmas<br />

craft activities. These hands-on experiences allow you<br />

and your family to create unique holiday keepsakes.<br />

Remember, these crafts are available while supplies<br />

last, so join in early!<br />

Enjoy the thrill of ice skating at Lancaster Park,<br />

weather permitting. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned<br />

skater, gliding across the ice beneath the festive<br />

lights is a magical way to embrace the holiday season.<br />

Take a moment to meet and take pictures with<br />

Santa Claus. This special encounter is a perfect opportunity<br />

to create lasting memories and capture the<br />

essence of Christmas joy.<br />

Witness the art of ice carving as a skilled artist<br />

turns ice into stunning sculptures. This visually captivating<br />

display is not just entertaining but also a testament<br />

to the beauty and creativity of the season.<br />

The Tree Lighting Ceremony is at 6:30 p.m. Gather<br />

around as the Christmas tree is illuminated in a spectacular<br />

display, officially welcoming the holiday season.<br />

The lighting is followed by a choir performance,<br />

adding a musical touch to the festive atmosphere.<br />

Santa to visit Obetz neighborhoods<br />

Santa’s <strong>2023</strong> Neighborhood Drive in Obetz will be<br />

Dec. 16, starting at 3 p.m. Santa’s sleigh will wind<br />

through Obetz’s streets, bringing joy and festive cheer<br />

to the neighborhoods. He will embark on his magical<br />

journey through every street in Obetz ensuring he visits<br />

all the good boys and girls before they’re snug in<br />

their beds. To make his journey smooth, Obetz city officials<br />

ask everyone to ensure all cars are off the roads<br />

to clear the way for Santa’s sleigh. Information about<br />

Santa’s route and the exclusive Santa Tracker will be<br />

released by the city of Obetz closer to Dec. 16.<br />

CW considers Northpoint plan<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> City Council is considering an<br />

ordinance addressing community reinvestment area<br />

agreements with Northpoint Development for a trio of<br />

buildings that previously appeared as a two building<br />

development at Rager and Bixby roads at a 15-year,<br />

100 percent real estate abatement.<br />

In 2019, the city adopted a resolution approving the<br />

initial CRA agreements with Northpoint. In 2022, the<br />

agreements were amended.<br />

“Plans have since changed for that development,”<br />

said <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Development Director Lucas<br />

Haire.<br />

Today, the agreement calls for a 15-year, 75 percent<br />

real estate abatement for two 263,000 square foot<br />

buildings and one 435,000 square foot building. The<br />

smaller structures are each estimated to generate a<br />

$12.5 million investment, 100 jobs and a payroll of $4.5<br />

million.<br />

The third building Northpoint is proposing is a<br />

$20.5 million investment generating 150 jobs with a<br />

$6.77 million payroll.<br />

“We are creating a real estate tax exemption in<br />

exchange for creation of a certain amount of investment<br />

and jobs for each of those three buildings,” said<br />

Haire. “Previously, we were looking at a 100 percent<br />

exemption for 15 years.”<br />

Haire said both school districts–<strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

and Groveport Madison–are in agreement that the<br />

current proposal would be an appropriate trade.<br />

“I’m glad we saved this project and that it’s coming<br />

back,” said Councilman Bob Clark.<br />

and household sizes; and promote the development of<br />

mixed use, walkable development patterns.<br />

•Regarding public utilities and services, the top two<br />

objectives suggested in the community plan are to continue<br />

provide appropriate resources to maintain the<br />

high quality of public services in the city and to anticipate<br />

and incentivize future growth in focus areas<br />

through proactive capital improvements planning.<br />

•The top three objectives as far as transportation<br />

are: Utilize the Thoroughfare Plan for roadway network<br />

improvements and update the plan regularly;<br />

Maintain a fiscally responsible approach to managing<br />

a high quality and safe transportation system; and<br />

ensure the design of new and existing facilities lends to<br />

a visually appealing environment.<br />

•The top two objectives in directing parks, recreation<br />

and open spaces are: to provide a system of accessible<br />

and quality parks, recreation opportunities and<br />

open spaces that is welcoming, beautiful and meets the<br />

needs of everyone in the community and to preserve<br />

and enhance the community’s open spaces and waterways.

Programs enrich education<br />

of CW special needs students<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Education is not static for special needs<br />

students at <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong> Schools<br />

where you might find older students volunteering<br />

in the community or working in<br />

food service, while younger kids learn prevocational<br />

skills as early as elementary<br />

school.<br />

Special Education Director Brooke<br />

Hippler and members of her staff reported<br />

on the department’s prevocational program<br />

during the Nov. 20 <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Board of Education meeting. The program<br />

includes personal and interpersonal skill<br />

training for elementary through high<br />

school students.<br />

“We have found prevocational planning<br />

even helps in the development of employment<br />

related skills and helps bridge the<br />

gap between the capabilities of our students<br />

with special needs and the demands<br />

of the job market,” said Hippler. “We’re<br />

starting very young to get some of those<br />

skills in there. It also helps reduce some of<br />

the unemployment within the special<br />

needs community.”<br />

At Indian Trail Elementary, intervention<br />

specialist Amy Irwin said students are<br />

taught foundational skills for whichever<br />

vocational path they may choose.<br />

“One of the things we’re focusing on<br />

right now is talking and communicating,”<br />

Irwin said.<br />

Students partner with therapists in<br />

learning skills through working with<br />

recipes. They work on service projects and<br />

volunteer as well. All of which helps with<br />

independence and functional skills.<br />

At the middle school, kids work in the<br />

cafeteria stocking milk and chips and<br />

wrapping fruit. In workshops students<br />

practice food orders utilizing fake food, use<br />

math skills measuring beans and rice,<br />

identifying correct change and use tools to<br />

fix simple objects.<br />

Employment skills focus on aptitudes<br />

students will need to become paid employees,<br />

such as memorizing personal data, filling<br />

out applications and practicing social<br />

skills.<br />

“We role play what we would do when<br />

we go into a store,” reported middle school<br />

Intervention Specialist Diana Scott, who<br />

said students also independently or with<br />

minimal assistance prepare and make<br />

lunch boxes or coffee once a week for staff.<br />

“They’ll take a clipboard and take orders<br />

verbally, then they have to write up the<br />

orders and come back. They’re suppose to<br />

have their own set of customers all<br />

throughout the building.”<br />

High School Intervention Specialist<br />

Hayley Richardson discussed the school’s<br />

Café on the <strong>Canal</strong> program where twice a<br />

week her students deliver drink orders to<br />

staff on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Once a<br />

month a snack is incorporated into the program.<br />

“We also make lunch twice a month,”<br />

said Richardson. “We take a group of students<br />

to ALDIs and we go grocery shopping.<br />

We prep on Tuesday, prepare on<br />

Wednesday and deliver on Thursday.”<br />

Students at the high school also collaborate<br />

with the Chartwells team in the cafeteria<br />

to wash and put dishes away, prepare<br />

pizzas and cookies, and stock drink coolers.<br />

“They’re actually getting real work<br />

experience working in a cafeteria,” said<br />

Richardson. “Another big thing we just<br />

started is making shirts.”<br />

Special needs students produced over<br />

100 t-shirts for the <strong>Canal</strong> <strong>Winchester</strong><br />

Schools staff for Spread the Word Day and<br />

volunteer at Goodwill and with the<br />

Columbus Metropolitan Library system.<br />

“Outside of school, we like to give our<br />

students work opportunities,” said<br />

Richardson.<br />

Madison Twp. fire dept. funding<br />

By Linda Dillman<br />

Staff Writer<br />

A quintet of resolutions for the fire department<br />

dominated the Nov. 28 Madison Township trustees<br />

meeting with purchase requests and a grant application.<br />

Fire Chief Derek Robinson asked for approval to<br />

submit a $15,000 Firefighter Exposure to<br />

Environmental Elements grant request for new gloves<br />

and hoods, with the township responsible for a maximum<br />

$3,000 of the total cost.<br />

“These are firefighting ensembles we wear inside a<br />

fire,” said Robinson. “It’s something we go through<br />

each year with wear and tear.”<br />

Robinson also asked for approval to purchase three<br />

Stryker LUCAS devices–used in cases of cardiac<br />

arrest–at a cost of $33,940.<br />

The cost includes a $9,000 trade-in discounts for<br />

current units and an additional $6,000 discount if the<br />

devices are ordered before Dec. 15.<br />

“The three new LUCAS devices provide chest compressions<br />

in a consistent manner,” Robinson said. “We<br />

have all of these on our frontline vehicles. Stryker is<br />

providing deep discounts, which is saving the township<br />

about $15,000.”<br />

The trustees also approved the purchase of new<br />

mobile data computers for the fire department not to<br />

exceed $51,442 and a $15,434 communications light<br />

package for a fire department vehicle.<br />

Plumbing problems for Fire Station 181’s bathroom,<br />

dating back over a year, will finally be resolved with<br />

the approval of a contract–not to exceed $29,296–to<br />

remodel the 1980s-era facility.<br />

“We were able to finally get quotes in <strong>2023</strong>,” said<br />

Robinson.<br />

The Franklin County Board of Elections has certified<br />

results of the Nov. 7 General Election.<br />

Official totals show 426,058 voters out of 880,573<br />

Madison Township Police news<br />

Madison Township Police Chief Gary York updated<br />

the trustees on the incorporation of new Axon bodyworn<br />

cameras into the department.<br />

According to York, on Nov. 14, supervisors and<br />

office managers underwent specialized training and as<br />

of Nov. 21, the department completed transition to the<br />

new system.<br />

“There is a learning curve on all of this with a new<br />

system,” said York. “Axon is the leader in the market<br />

regarding body cams and in-car. There was an investment<br />

on the township’s behalf of $83,356. We applied<br />

for a grant to help cover the cost. We expect that to<br />

come through. The tech we have with these cameras,<br />

we didn’t have before.”<br />

York said the cameras are automatically activated<br />

by the use of guns and/or tasers. Any contact with citizens<br />

requires an officer to activate the system as well.<br />

“It sounds like a lot of money, but one incident with<br />

a police officer could cost way more than $83,000,”<br />

Public works Superintendent Dave Watkins reported<br />

on the extensive amount of time his workers spent<br />

on addressing nuisance trash cases in October. He said<br />

60 yards of dumpster trash was collected at one property<br />

and another 20 yards at each of two different sites.<br />

Madison Township Administrator Susan Brobst<br />

stated a number of the properties are repeat offenders.<br />

To recoup costs, the township places a tax lien on<br />

the properties, which must be settled when the mostly<br />

vacant properties are sold. The county prosecutor<br />

approved the process.<br />

“We charge for every penny we spend,” said<br />

Madison Township Fiscal Officer Laurie Vermeer.<br />

Auditor returns funds<br />

Franklin County Auditor Michael<br />

Stinziano announced that the Auditor’s<br />

office is reallocating $5 million to schools,<br />

libraries, parks, municipalities and agencies.<br />

Of that $5 million, a majority of the<br />

funds — more than $3.2 million - are going<br />

to school districts across the county.<br />

Additionally, Franklin County cities and<br />

villages will get $414,173, townships will<br />

get $259,952, libraries and parks will get<br />

$136,270, and county agencies will get<br />

$944,764.<br />

“By being fiscally responsible, we are<br />

able to return this money to help our community,”<br />

said Stinziano. “This is as close<br />

as we can come as per Ohio law to returning<br />

the funds directly to the citizens of<br />

Franklin County.”<br />

The reallocated money could be used for<br />

items like property tax relief, school supplies<br />

or other needs that benefit residents<br />

of Franklin County.<br />

Columbus City Schools will get the<br />

largest allotment of all the districts, at<br />

$1.08 million. Other school districts receiving<br />

generous returns are Hilliard City<br />

Schools with $293,911, Dublin City<br />

Schools at $287,238, Worthington City<br />

Schools at $267,913, <strong>South</strong>-Western<br />

Schools at $249,263, Upper Arlington at<br />

$202,521, and Westerville City Schools<br />

with $187,802.<br />

Among cities and villages, Columbus<br />

received the largest reapportionment, at<br />

$189,000, followed by Dublin at $36,636<br />

and Upper Arlington at $28,192. Among<br />

libraries, the Columbus Metropolitan<br />

Library will receive $90,396, followed by<br />

the Worthington Public Library at $14,037<br />

and the Upper Arlington Public Library at<br />

$8,771.<br />

The money that is being redistributed<br />

was collected as required by state law to<br />

pay for real estate reappraisals and triennial<br />

updates.<br />

Meeting Two<br />

Members of Ukraine’s<br />

Parliament<br />

One of the side features of being a member of<br />

the Ohio House of Representatives is the occasional<br />

opportunity to meet governmental officials<br />

from other countries when they travel to the<br />

U.S. Sometimes those visits take them to Columbus.<br />

During the last year, I have had the opportunity<br />

to meet the Canadian Consul and several<br />

members of governmental ministries of India.<br />

This past week I enjoyed the rare privilege to participate<br />

in a group discussion with two members<br />

of the Parliament of Ukraine, Lesia Zaburanna<br />

and Yehor Cherniev. Lesia is the Deputy Chair of<br />

the Finance Committee. She has earned a Ph.D.<br />

in Economics and is a college professor in Kiev in<br />

addition to her legislative responsibilities. Yehor<br />

is the Deputy Chair of the National Security, Defense,<br />

and Intelligence Committee and is an IT<br />

entrepreneur outside the legislature.<br />

The Ukrainian Parliament is known there as the<br />

Verkhovna Rada or Supreme Council. It consists<br />

of only one house (not like our bicameral legislature<br />

at both the state and national levels) with<br />

a total of 450 members, half of which are elected<br />

from geographic districts. When any political<br />

party obtains more than 5% of the vote in a national<br />

election, it is allocated a proportional number<br />

of members out of the remaining 225<br />

at-large seats.<br />

As you know, the nation was invaded by Russia<br />

21 months ago and has fought valiantly to defend<br />

itself from its adversary’s aggression. Russia<br />

took the Crimean portion of Ukraine in 2014 and<br />

has sought to capture the remainder of the country<br />

and reclaim it as one of the former Soviet Socialist<br />

Republics. If successful, Russia’s President<br />

Vladimer Putin has made it clear that Russia intends<br />

to reclaim other European free countries it<br />

previously acquired at various times after the former<br />

Soviet Union was established in 1917. Currently,<br />

about one-quarter of Ukraine’s 40 million<br />

people have fled to other countries as refugees<br />

or remain in the occupied portion. The nation itself<br />

is approximately the size of Texas. A total<br />

area about the size of Ohio is part of the land<br />

taken by Russia in 2014 or occupied in 2022.<br />

Our discussion centered on the wartime challenges<br />

Ukraine faces and the opportunities for<br />

reconstruction once the Russians are ultimately<br />

forced to withdraw. However, the prospects for<br />

a quick peace are slim if the Russian president insists<br />

on continuing to pursue his foolish aggressive<br />

objectives.<br />

(Dave Dobos represents the <strong>10th</strong> District in the<br />

Ohio House of Representatives, which consists of<br />

parts of West, <strong>South</strong>west, and <strong>South</strong> Columbus,<br />

Grove City, Urbancrest, and portions of Franklin<br />

and Jackson Townships. He reports regularly on his<br />

activities in this position and his campaign has paid<br />

for this communication with you.)<br />

Hamilton 2024 graduation<br />

to be at World Harvest<br />

After multiple surveys completed by<br />

Hamilton Township High School’s senior<br />

class, this school year’s graduation commencement<br />

ceremony for the Class of 2024<br />

will be held at World Harvest Church<br />

located at 4595 Gender Road in <strong>Canal</strong><br />

<strong>Winchester</strong>.<br />

The graduation ceremony will be held<br />

May 21 at 7 p.m.<br />

Four the past four years commencement<br />

was held at Fortress Obetz.<br />

According to Hamilton Local Schools<br />

officials, one of the primary reasons for the<br />

change is to eliminate the stress and<br />

uncertainty caused by weather-related<br />

reschedules.<br />

By moving the event indoors the ceremony<br />

can be held rain or shine. Holding<br />

the commencement at World Harvest<br />

Church provides time for families to plan,<br />

make necessary arrangements, and ensure<br />

that no one misses this significant event in<br />

the lives of our graduates.<br />

Hamilton Local Schools held graduation<br />

ceremonies at World Harvest prior to<br />

the COVID-19 pandemic for five years.<br />

Hamilton food drive<br />

Hamilton Local Schools will hold a<br />

canned/nonperishable food drive from Nov.<br />

27 through Dec. 11, to help families in the<br />

school district.<br />

Drop off non-perishable canned or<br />

boxed food items at the administrative<br />

building, 775 Rathmell Road, from 8 a.m.<br />

to 3 p.m, Monday through Friday.<br />

Eastland-Fairfield gets<br />

tech construction grant<br />

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine<br />

announced that $300 million of the state<br />

budget will be allocated toward career<br />

technical center improvements across the<br />

state. Eastland-Fairfield Career &<br />

Technical Schools will receive $4 million in<br />

grant money as a part of the Career Tech<br />

Construction grant program.<br />

The grant is funded by the state budget<br />

and broken into two different grant programs,<br />

the Career Tech Equipment ($100<br />

million) and Career Tech Construction<br />

($200 million) grant programs. Thirty-five<br />

Ohio career-technical districts received<br />

funds through the grant programs.<br />

“Eastland-Fairfield is very grateful to<br />

Governor DeWine and his office for all<br />

their support of career technical education,”<br />

said Eastland-Fairfield<br />

Superintendent/CEO Shelley Groves.<br />

“These funds will support Eastland-<br />

Fairfield in its mission to serve more students<br />

and families in the central Ohio<br />

region, as well as support our communities’<br />

local economic needs through skilled<br />

workforce growth.”<br />

The grant will be put to use towards the<br />

construction of a new welding lab, which<br />

will be housed at Fairfield Career Center<br />

in Carroll. This was one of multiple proposals<br />

submitted by Eastland-Fairfield to<br />

the Governor’s Office for consideration. A<br />

second welding section will be added to the<br />

existing program at Eastland Career<br />

Center in Groveport as a result of this<br />

funding.<br />

The additional funding from the incoming<br />

grant will allow for previously allocated<br />

funds to be used to support other elements<br />

of a board-approved master facilities<br />

expansion plan. More details will be<br />

provided about the master plan in the coming<br />

months.<br />

“We’re thrilled that one of our top<br />

demands is going to be addressed directly<br />

by this generous grant,” said Groves.<br />

“We’re also excited about the additional<br />

work that can be done to serve future adult<br />

and high school students across the planning<br />

district that will follow as part of our<br />

larger master facilities expansion plan.”<br />

Over the previous three years,<br />

Eastland-Fairfield has encountered<br />

record-breaking enrollment numbers in<br />

consecutive years across both high school<br />

campuses and its satellite programs. The<br />

funding from the CTE grant will help continue<br />

fueling the Eastland-Fairfield mission<br />

of engaging, enriching, and equipping<br />

students every day in every experience.<br />

Season’s Greetings<br />

and Great News for Ohio!<br />

I am thrilled to report that my first year as your State<br />

Senator has tremendous momentum. We are closing<br />

this year in the right direction. One of our many wins<br />

that I am most proud of is the record tax cuts for Ohio<br />

families and businesses passed in the $86.1 billion operating<br />

budget, providing record spending on public<br />

education, and expanded school options for Ohio<br />

families.<br />

I advocated for funding to invest in social services, education,<br />

health care, housing, and food security that will<br />

positively impact mothers and babies, immigrant communities,<br />

children, and African-American male wellness.<br />

I am also pleased to express my appreciation for Senate<br />

President Huffman, for entrusting me to lead Ohio’s first<br />

housing committee. With my background in real estate,<br />

I made it my priority to lead a committee with a mission<br />

to gain a deeper understanding of the Affordable Housing<br />

Crisis in Ohio, and the role the legislature can play<br />

in being part of the solution.<br />

This year has many great highlights, including the first<br />

annual Job Expo my office hosted at the<br />

statehouse, connecting Ohioans with career resources<br />

and opportunities.<br />

I wish you and your families a happy holiday season. We<br />

still have a long way to go but are on the right path. I<br />

started the beginning of this year with my legislative<br />

priorities. Continue to hold me accountable as I persevere<br />

with championing my commitment to Senate<br />

District 3.<br />

My priorities for you and your family are as follows:<br />

● Strengthening Ohio’s workforce<br />

● Creating affordable housing solutions<br />

● Improving Ohio’s K-12 education system<br />

● Expanding economic opportunities for all Ohioans<br />

● Improving public safety, criminal justice reform and<br />

access to justice<br />

● Protecting religious freedom and expression<br />

● Improving mental health and wellbeing<br />

Results matter, so let’s work together. Subscribe and<br />

follow me on social media for updates<br />

the value of their service<br />

or product is advised by<br />

this publication. In order<br />

to avoid misunderstandings,<br />

some advertisers do<br />

not offer “employment”<br />

but rather supply the<br />

readers with manuals, directories<br />

and other materials<br />

designed to help<br />

their clients establish mail<br />

order selling and other<br />

businesses at home. Under<br />

NO circumstance<br />

should you send any<br />

money in advance or give<br />

the client your checking,<br />

license ID or credit card<br />

numbers. Also beware of<br />

ads that claim to guarantee<br />

loans regardless of<br />

credit and note that if a<br />

credit repair company<br />

does business only over<br />

the phone it’s illegal to request<br />

any money before<br />

delivering its service. All<br />

dollars. Toll Free numbers<br />
