MIDDLETOWN—State Representative Candice Keller (R-Middletown) urged Governor Mike DeWine to reconsider his executive orders regarding the coronavirus pandemic in order to restart Ohio’s economy.


“While they may have been necessary at the time and I am glad to see the ‘flattening of the curve,’ now is the time to reopen Ohio,” said Keller. “With almost one million citizens unemployed, my community is being devastated economically.”


In a letter to Governor DeWine, Keller wrote that her constituents are postponing medical appointments, which may have unknown adverse health effects due to their delay. She also noted that Ohio citizens may be at greater risk for mental health issues due to an increase in poverty.


“As you lead our state, I know many factors contribute to your decision making,” said Keller. “I ask you to consider the challenges that Ohioans are facing daily.”
