11.15.18 - Mahoning Valley Lawmakers Push For Commonsense Gun Safety As GOP Passes So-called Stand Your Ground Bill

 

Ohio House Democratic state lawmakers today voted against House Bill (HB) 228, the so-called Stand Your Ground bill, a Republican-sponsored effort to loosen gun safety standards by reducing firearm offenses, making it harder to prosecute gun violence cases and preempting local authority to enact commonsense safety protections for Ohio families.

“We live in a culture that is pervasive with violence and a culture that glamorizes gun violence on TV, video games and in the media,” said Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland) “This legislation only adds to an already volatile cultural trend that escalates tensions and now will permit violence to be the final solution.”

08.15.18 - Mahoning Valley Lawmakers Respond To Northside Regional Medical Center Closing

 

State Reps. John Boccieri (D-Poland), Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown) and Glenn Holmes (D-Girard) today responded to the recent announcement that the Northside Regional Medical Center, owned and operated by Steward Health Care, will cease operations on September 20.

“From the beginning, it was difficult to see Steward Health Care’s for-profit model of hospital mergers and acquisitions working for the Valley community,” said Boccieri. “Operational changes created tension for patients, reducing pharmacy hours caused in-patient care delays, altering staff-to-patient ratios potentially diminished high quality care and contract delays caused tension among nurses. My concern is looking for a path forward for both patients and workers in coming weeks.”
