House Dems Announce Statewide Ohio Promise Town Hall Tour
Tour to focus on Dem efforts to invest in working people and families

House Minority Leader Emilia Strong Sykes (D-Akron) today announced the launch of the Ohio Promise Tour, a statewide legislative town hall series hosted by House Democratic members to discuss the state budget, bipartisan priorities and a number of recent Democratic-led wins for working people and families.


“The Ohio Promise Tour gives taxpayers access to their elected representatives to ask questions and get up-to-date on what’s happening in Columbus,” said Leader Sykes. “While we’ve delivered on a number of key priorities in recent months, there is more work to do to restore the promise of better lives and brighter futures for working families. This tour will help shape our priorities heading into the fall session and reaffirms our commitment to keeping our promise to work for you, the taxpayers.”


Tour stops will provide constituents with a legislative update, as well as an open forum to ask questions and identify community concerns that can be addressed through state government.


The Ohio Promise Tour announcement follows the unveiling of the Ohio Promise, Democrats’ legislative framework aimed at expanding opportunity by investing in Ohio’s future and building an economy that works for everyone.
