LIMA, Ohio - 

State Representative Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) and members of the House Manufacturing and Workforce Development Committee recently held a regional hearing in Lima, as part of several events lawmakers participated in prior to Governor John Kasich’s State of the State address. The committee was a joint event with the Ohio Senate’s Workforce and Economic Development Committee.

Specifically, the committee members heard testimony from 10 individuals from career centers and workforce groups within the Lima area. The witnesses offered insight into their workforce development needs and how improving the state’s workforce development efforts will bolster the manufacturing and job creation.

“I enjoyed the opportunity to bring 'government to the people' by holding our Manufacturing and Workforce Development Committee at the Apollo Workforce Center,” said Rep. Roegner. “The hospitality they demonstrated was truly exceptional, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to directly hear from the people in Allen County. As state government, we should do more of this where and when it makes sense.”

The hearing was held at the Apollo Career Center, which provides career training to high school and adult students, and affords them the opportunity to make significant contributions to the community and economy.
