State Rep. Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown) today issued a statement in support of the more than 1,300 workers who will be affected by the closure of GM’s Lordstown, Ohio production facility, which is scheduled to take place as soon as Wednesday, March 6. An Ohio House panel today unanimously passed a resolution urging GM to allocate a new product to the plant, which has employed Mahoning Valley workers for more than 50 years.


“State lawmakers, both Democrats and Republicans, are standing united in support of our true blue workers across the Mahoning Valley who will be impacted by the closure of GM Lordstown.


“I am disappointed, however, that the governor missed the opportunity in his first State of the State to address the uncertainty facing workers, families and small businesses across the region. I hope that in the coming days and weeks, the governor will join us to secure the future of Lordstown by investing in workers and focusing on ways we can work together to bring more good-paying jobs to the Valley.”
