Guest Column From Ohio House Speaker Ryan Smith: Area Expansions Strengthen The 93rd House District, Ohio

 
Columbus - 

This summer has been a busy one in the 93rd House District, especially considering the steps the area has taken to advance community and business development. As always, I was able to make my rounds to most of our county fairs—one of the true highlights of the season in southern Ohio. It is incredible to see the dedication our 4-H students put into their craft, and I commend them for such devoted civic involvement. In addition to our fairs, I attended groundbreakings for many different industries across the district.

From figuring out classroom schedules to making time for sports and extracurricular activities, ensuring each of my children are set up to succeed as they begin a new grade isn’t always an easy task.

Along with this honor comes great responsibility, and we’ve been incredibly busy over the past weeks to pass vital legislation that will impact Ohioans across the state.
