Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) has appointed State Representative Steve Arndt (R-Port Clinton) to serve as Vice Chair of the House Local Government Committee, which will become effective May 1st.


“I am looking forward to serving as Vice Chair of the Local Government Committee,” Arndt said. “My knowledge gained while working locally with the residents of Ottawa and Erie Counties through both public offices and service organizations will serve me well in this new capacity.”


The House Local Government Committee addresses legislation that pertains to townships and municipalities, giving these local governments the support and tools necessary to help them thrive and not endure the burden of overregulation.


In serving his first term in the Ohio House, Arndt is building upon his already well-established career in public service. Most recently, he was an Ottawa County Commissioner for 27 years, sitting on various different committees throughout his tenure. Additionally, Arndt has served for many years on the board of the Northwest Area Office on Aging, including as president, which covers nine counties, the Port Clinton Chamber of Commerce, the Elmore Village Council and other local government entities.
Arndt will continue to serve on the Armed Services, Veterans Affairs and Public Safety Committee, the Commerce and Labor Committee, the Economic and Workforce Development Committee, as well as the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.


The 89th House District encompasses both Ottawa and Erie counties.
