COLUMBUS—State Representative Al Landis (R-Dover) today announced that he will join Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine in hosting “TUSC Talk: An Evening to Discuss Heroin and Other Opiates in our Community.” The event will give individuals and families an opportunity to learn more about what’s being done at the state level to combat Ohio’s opiate abuse epidemic while discussing how it is impacting communities.
The 132nd General Assembly marks my last term as your state representative, and I’m making it my mission to spread a positive message throughout the 98th Ohio House District about the power of saying no to drugs. It’s no secret—Ohio is firmly in the grasp of an opioid epidemic that seems unstoppable, despite the initiatives and funding promoted at the state level to put an end to this scourge. That’s why it is more imperative than ever before to implement preventative measures in order to protect future generations from succumbing to the illness of addiction.
COLUMBUS—Today, State Representative Al Landis (R-Dover), in coordination with Jodi Salvo and the Tuscarawas County Anti-Drug Coalition, officially launched the “Got Your Back” Ohio Drug-Free Initiative, which will be promoted across the 98th Ohio House District to encourage students to remain drug free.
As I embark on my fourth and final term as your state representative, I have a number of priorities on which I intend to focus over this legislative session. Over the last six years, the state has improved in a variety of ways, from cutting taxes to fostering job growth. I feel proud to have been a component of this success, and I hope I have been a strong voice for my constituents in Columbus. While Ohio is thriving, there is still work to be done and many issues to address for its continued improvement.
