State Rep. John Rogers (D-Mentor-on-the-Lake) has been appointed to serve as a member of the House committees on Way & Means and State & Local Government. 


“I am honored to serve on these important committees,” said Rep. Rogers. “I am confident that my experience in local government and service as Mayor will aid me in this new endeavor.  Ensuring that the hard earned tax dollars of our citizens are being spent appropriately is one of my top priorities. It is also important that our state’s policy priorities accurately reflect the interests and concerns of Ohioans first. I look forward to working with my colleagues as we address these challenges and seek to establish policies that work for Ohioans.”


The House of Representatives has 17 standing committees. House Republicans have slightly altered the committee structure for the 130th General Assembly. The committees on Local Government and Criminal Justice were consolidated, while new committees on Manufacturing & Workforce Development and Policy & Legislative Oversight were established. Committee meetings may be held any time before or after House floor sessions, and they are open to the public.


Rep. Rogers has extensive experience with tax and fiscal policy. He served as Mayor of the City of Mentor-on-the-Lake for nearly nineteen years before coming to the Ohio House. While serving as Mayor, Rep. Rogers oversaw the operations of over 100 employees and managed a budget averaging in excess of $4.5 million dollars.
