They were joined by other representatives in the Northwest Ohio Delegation—Representatives Fedor (D-Toledo) Sheehy (D-Toledo), Merrin (R-Monclova Township), Gavarone (R-Bowling Green), and Riedel (R-Defiance).

The award is presented each year to a leader in the aging field who elevates the mission of N4A.

After accepting her resolution, Ms. Johnson stated, “…I come to this work knowing that there’s still so many older adults in our wonderful, beautiful state who need help.” In all ten counties it serves in Northwest Ohio, AOoANO has implemented several programs and initiatives under Johnson’s leadership including senior prom, a partnership with Toledo Public Schools, and the Passport Program, an in-home care program.

07.25.17 - Rep. Fedor Applauds $700M Steel Facility Project That Will Bring Over 1,000 Jobs To Toledo, Great Lakes Region

 

State Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) today announced that the Toledo Ironville Terminal will soon be home to a $700 million ironworks facility that will produce Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) for the steel industry in the Great Lakes region. The new facility, which is expected to create 130 permanent jobs and 1,200 construction jobs, will require two million hours of manual labor to complete.

“The selection of Toledo Ironville Terminal for this exciting project is a testimony to the strength of the workforce here in Toledo,” said Fedor. “The significant investment being made will create over a thousand good-paying jobs in northwest Ohio, spurring economic growth and helping to rebuild Ohio’s steel industry. I join the hard-working men and women of Toledo in looking forward to helping produce and build quality infrastructure for the entire nation.”

 
 

07.06.17 - Fedor: GOP Bill To Weaken Concealed Carry Protections Puts Public Safety In The Crosshairs

 

In a political effort to hamstring Ohio House Democratic lawmakers in a pro-gun, anti-gun debate today on the House floor, Republicans brought forward House Bill (HB) 233 for a vote, legislation that allows concealed carry permit holders to knowingly bring guns or deadly weapons into daycares, schools, airports, bars and other restricted spaces, so long as the permit holder leaves when asked to do so. Individuals who refuse to leave or return to the same business while carrying a prohibited weapon within 30 days will be subject to a fourth degree misdemeanor.

“Americans value and enshrine in our constitution the right to manage weapons under our roof. This concept is enshrined in the 2nd Amendment, against the forced quartering of soldiers. For a young child in a daycare center, that center is essentially their home, and the caregivers are charged with protecting the children as if they were their own,” said Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo). “Under this bill, even private homes can be subject to knowing, purposeful trespass with a firearm. Whether it is a daycare, a restaurant or a shelter, the owners and managers have the right to set rules for how they will protect those in their care or under their roof.”
