State Reps. David Leland (D-Columbus), Mary Lightbody (D-Westerville) and Allison Russo (D-Upper Arlington) today announced town hall meetings TOMORROW, August 28 at 6:30 p.m. at the Norwich Township Safety Services Building in Hilliard and Thursday, August 29 at 6:00 p.m. at the Whetstone Library to discuss the state budget, bipartisan priorities and a number of recent Democratic-led wins for working people and families in Central Ohio.


“The only way to represent the people is to listen. That’s what the Ohio Promise Tour is all about,” said Rep. Leland.


“My Democratic colleagues and I are embracing these opportunities to connect with constituents across Franklin County and discuss the work being done at the Statehouse,” said Rep. Lightbody. “It is imperative that we hear the concerns from our communities and provide an insight into how we will work together on their behalf.”


“This is a fantastic opportunity for us to discuss the latest Statehouse updates and address any issues or concerns constituents have,” said Rep. Russo. “I encourage everyone to come, and I am looking forward to the discussion.”


The events will provide constituents with a legislative update, as well as an open forum to ask questions and identify community concerns that can be addressed through state government.


The town halls are part of Democrats’ statewide Ohio Promise Town Hall Tour, a legislative town hall series following the unveiling of the Ohio Promise, a legislative framework aimed at expanding opportunity by investing in Ohio’s future and building an economy that works for everyone.
