State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) today announced her participation in the newly formed Lake Erie Caucus.

“As a member of the Great Lakes Legislative Caucus within the Council of State Governments, I am particularly pleased that the Ohio General Assembly has formed its own caucus to support one of Ohio’s most important assets,” said Rep. Anielski. “Our region is heavily dependent upon the health of Lake Erie as a source for fresh water and economic development through tourism.”

The inaugural meeting featured presentations by Melinda Huntley, Executive Director of the Ohio Travel Association, and Dr. Jeffrey Reutter, Director of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program.

“I am pleased Representative Anielski is committed to addressing the challenges which face our Great Lake – from phosphorus runoff to Asian Carp,” said Joint-Chairman Mike Dovilla. “These are issues we must address as legislators to ensure we leave a vibrant lake to our children and grandchildren."

The newly formed caucus is jointly chaired by one Republican and one Democrat member of each chamber. Representatives Mike Dovilla (R-Berea) and Chris Redfern (D-Catawba Island) and Senators Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) and Capri Cafaro (D-Hubbard) serve as chairs of the caucus.
