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.”

 
 

08.14.18 - Recent Flooding Underscores Need For Boardman Action On Sewer Plan

 

In the wake of last week’s storm floods of Boardman-area residents’ homes, State Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland) and other local elected officials are urging Boardman Township Trustee Tom Costello to quickly share the township’s flood-mitigation plan and to work with state officials to address local safety and health issues, much like Austintown and Poland did when faced with similar issues.

“When families and citizens experience the financial and physical devastation that flooding brings, they need serious solutions that prioritize their safety and well-being,” said Boccieri. “I stand ready to assist local officials who need to establish a comprehensive plan immediately to ensure this never happens again.”

07.24.18 - Rep. Boccieri Responds To Potential Russian Hacking Of US Electric Utilities

 

Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland), a member of the House Public Utilities Committee, today expressed concern over a possible hack by Russian leaders into the U.S electric grid and “all but turning off the switches.” According to a recent article published in the Wall Street Journal, Russians exploited vulnerabilities in the U.S electrical grid, threatening roving blackouts in response to Congressional actions over economic sanctions. Those vulnerabilities stem from second and third party vendors who conducted business with major utility companies.  

“This is a wakeup call for America and Ohio because this possible hack shows our utility safeguards need to be strengthened. The entire U.S economy and our nation's military depend on a steady flow of electricity without disruption, and this sort of cyber-attack could create not only chaos in the economy but major disruptions to our way of life.
