State Rep. Glenn W. Holmes (D-McDonald) this week was selected to serve as the top Democratic member of the House State and Local Government Committee.

“Having served for well over a decade as a chair of various regional planning organizations, city councilperson, and then as the mayor of McDonald, I feel well-prepared to take on this leadership role on the State and Local Government Committee,” said Holmes. “I look forward to sharing my knowledge and expertise with my fellow committee members in my new capacity as ranking member.”

The House State and Local Government Committee meets regularly to deliberate proposed legislation that affects Ohio’s governmental institutions and officials at both the state and local levels.

“As a new member of the Ohio legislature, I’m humbled to have been chosen for this important position,” said Holmes. “It’s truly an honor to serve the great state of Ohio and its citizens, and I look forward to continuing my service in this new role.”

Rep. Holmes also serves on the House Insurance Committee and the newly-created House Federalism and Interstate Relations Committee.

Committees are held any time before or after House floor sessions and are open to the public.
