03.10.17 - Ramos Responds To Closure Of Line #6 At Lorain US Steel Mill

 

State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) released the following statement today in response to news that U.S. Steel will close Line #6 at Lorain’s U.S. Steel mill:

03.09.17 - Rep. Ramos Honors First African American Baseball Player

 

State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today applauded the recent passage of House Bill 59, legislation to honor Moses Fleetwood Walker, the nation’s first professional African American baseball player. The bill, co-sponsored by Rep. Ramos, designates Walker’s birthday of October 7 as “Moses Fleetwood Walker Day” in the state of Ohio.

“Walker overcame prejudice and discrimination to break into professional baseball nearly a century before civil rights and only a few short decades after the end of slavery,” said Ramos. “His legacy is a lesson about judging people by their abilities, not their outward appearance. I hope this legislation will help current and future generations of Ohioans to remain mindful of this important lesson.”

 
 

03.06.17 - Ramos Condemns Anti-Semitic Vandalism Targeting Lorain Synagogue

 

State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today issued the following statement in response to reports that vandals recently defaced Lorain’s Agudath B’nai Israel (ABI) Synagogue with a swastika and hate speech:  

“I was shocked and dismayed to hear of the recent act of vandalism against Agudath B’nai Israel in Lorain. These disgusting, hateful and ignorant actions are not in any way reflective of our community’s values. 

“This type of senseless anti-Semitism should rightfully be condemned by all reasonable, thinking people, and I do so today. I am disgusted, and frankly embarrassed, that this has come to our town – but I am heartened by the outpouring of support for ABI by the vast majority of the Lorain community. 

 
 

03.02.17 - Ramos Announces Bipartisan Bill To Modernize State Domestic Violence Laws Clears Ohio House

 

State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today announced the recent House passage of House Bill (HB) 1, bipartisan legislation to modernize Ohio’s domestic violence laws. Joint-sponsored by Reps. Emilia Strong Sykes (D-Akron) and Nathan Manning (R-N. Ridgeville), HB 1 will allow victims of dating violence to obtain civil protective orders against their attacker, a protection currently allowed in every state except Ohio and Georgia.

“I’m delighted to be a cosponsor on this important bill,” said Ramos. “It’s a travesty, frankly, that it hasn’t happened already. I hope Senate Leadership calls House Bill 1 for a vote this year, since they failed to do so last year despite unanimous passage out of the House.”
