09.11.18 - Summit Co Democratic Lawmakers Urge AG DeWine To Take Stance Against Texas Lawsuit Seeking To Dismantle Healthcare Protections

 

State Rep. Emilia Sykes (D-Akron), state Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) and state Sen. Vernon Sykes (D-Akron) today sent a letter to Attorney General Mike DeWine urging him to join other attorneys general across the nation in denouncing the Texas lawsuit that seeks to terminate the Affordable Care Act nationwide. 

“If the lawsuit is successful, thousands of Ohio families will lose the foundation and security of affordable healthcare,” said Rep. Galonski. “It is unconscionable to heap that kind of worry onto hardworking people.”

 
 

08.28.18 - Akron Area State Lawmakers Host Local Small Business Summit

 

State Rep. Emilia Sykes (D-Akron), state Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) and state Sen. Vernon Sykes (D-Akron) hosted a local Small Business Summit on Friday, August 24th, at Alpha Phi Alpha Homes, Inc.

I look forward to continuing to uplift Akron’s minority community and businesses while serving the Statehouse.”

 
 

08.01.18 - Galonski: Back-to-school Sales Tax Holiday Starts This Weekend

 

State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) 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.

“With so many Ohio families struggling to make ends meet already, the tax free holiday alleviates a bit of the financial burden that comes with back to school shopping,” said Galonski. “To be successful during the school year students and their families not only need to purchase class specific items, but also replace everyday use items. While a family may save a relatively small amount this weekend, those dollars add up so a student can have lunch money or be able to replace something later in the school year. Every little bit helps.”     

 
 

06.29.18 - Rep. Galonski Releases Statement Concerning B&W Layoffs

 

State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) today responded to Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc. announcing the layoff of 51 workers in Barberton and Copley on Thursday.

B&W primarily makes and services coal-fired boilers and pollution control equipment for power plants.  With more power plants fueled by natural gas over coal, B&W has struggled to overcome the competition. The job cuts were a result of efforts to align costs with revenue.
