State Rep. Thomas E. West (D-Canton) today issued the following statement expressing his cautious optimism following the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States:

“Though many Americans are uncertain about the future, I remain positive today in my belief that our best days are still ahead of us. I look forward to the role we can play in Ohio to advance our shared priorities of rebuilding our infrastructure and creating new, better-paying jobs.

“If the President truly means what he said about working together for all Americans, I look forward to seeing that progress.

“While I am willing to give our new President a chance, that does not mean giving him a free pass. We must continue to hold him accountable for what he says and does.”
