State Representative Janine Boyd, a lifelong resident of Ohio’s 9th House District, ran for office to help shift the tide back to policies that invest in working families by providing good jobs and high quality services, especially for those who need them most.

07.23.19 - Rep. Janine Boyd, Cuyahoga County Delegation Announce Support Of Proposed Specialized Domestic Violence Docket At Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court

 

State Rep. Janine Boyd (D-Cleveland Heights) and the Cuyahoga County delegation of state lawmakers today announced their support of the proposed specialized domestic violence docket with the  Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court (CCCPC).

“In the months since Aisha Fraser met the escalated brutality that ripped her away from this world, I’ve learned a great deal in my research and work on Aisha’s law. The reoccurring lesson is that something has to change at the intersection between victim, perpetrator, and the court. The court is all too often a missed opportunity for life saving intervention. I applaud Judge Russo for his proactive decision to establish a domestic violence docket to address the most lethal domestic violence cases, and I am also encouraged by his choice in Judge Miday to preside over those hearings. We all know that these kinds of cases are often complicated, layered, and exceptionally emotional, but we must reshape our system towards valuing the lives of domestic violence victims. This new court is a significant step in that direction. Thank you, Judge John J. Russo and Judge Sherrie Miday,” said Rep. Janine Boyd.

 
 

07.17.19 - Rep. Janine Boyd: Budget Compromise A Step In The Right Direction To Restore Ohio Promise, Still A Long Way Off From Being Fully Funded After Decades Of Disinvestment

 

Ohio State Representative Janine Boyd (D-Cleveland Heights) today issued a statement in support of the finalized version of the state budget, House Bill (HB) 166. Throughout the process, Democrats focused on reversing a decade of Republican cuts and lackluster job growth to restore Ohio’s promise by investing in working people and families. Republicans control a supermajority in the Ohio legislature, but it still took months of closed door meetings and the passage of a temporary budget to decide on HB 166.

"My vote was a YES today, but this is bitter sweet for me. I will talk about the sweet first, because my mother always tells me that you get more bees with honey. At a glance, Ohioans will see that there are some great things coming out of this budget. For example, Ohioans can expect reduced number of tests students must complete to graduate high school, the creation of H2Ohio which invests money for a targeted, long-term investment into pressing water challenges facing Lake Erie, the Lead-Safe Cleveland Fund Pilot Project that will improve housing conditions for children by providing grants to property owners for lead-safe remediation actions, increased Public Library Funds, a first ever annual earmark to Domestic Violence programs across the state, increased funding for foster care services, and even increased funding for my kinship care navigator program that will prevent children from entering foster care and keep families together."
