“GM’s announcement is devastating for our community and all of the workers and families who make America run,” said Rep. Mike O’Brien (D-Warren). “Because a plant closure in Lordstown would have an outsized economic impact on supporting businesses and workers throughout Ohio, it is more important now than ever that all statewide leaders are engaged with GM and working to not just protect local jobs, but to grow local jobs while keeping us competitive on a global scale.”

08.22.18 - NE Ohio Lawmakers Celebrate Successful Lordstown TJX Vote


State Rep. Glenn W. Holmes (D-Girard), state Rep. Mike O’Brien (D-Warren) & state Sen. Sean O’Brien (D-Bazetta) celebrated the successful rezoning of the 290 acre site where TJX Homegoods plans to build their new distribution center. Lordstown held a referendum vote on the issue on Tuesday after those opposed to the project secured the requisite number of signatures to get it on the ballot. With a majority of voters voting in favor of rezoning, TJX will be able to begin construction on time.

07.31.18 - O'Brien: Back-to-school Sales Tax Holiday Starts This Weekend


State Rep. Michael O’Brien (D-Warren) today announced Ohio’s back-to-school sales tax-free holiday scheduled for this weekend, August 3-5, as a result of the passage of Senate Bill (SB) 226. The annual event helps lessen the sting of the 4.5 percent statewide sales tax hike passed by Republican lawmakers in the 2013 state budget. The hike has cost taxpayers almost $2 billion more since then, according to state revenue numbers.

“This program is a great cost saving measure for parents and caregivers in Trumbull County, providing a much needed opportunity to save on important school supplies that are vital to their children’s education,” said O’Brien.
