COLUMBUS –State Rep. Paula Hicks-Hudson (D-Toledo) on Wednesday held a virtual community town hall as part of the Ohio Promise Virtual Town Hall Tour, a series of digital events this summer where local lawmakers provide a Statehouse update on issues including COVID-19, education and the economy, and racial justice.
“Thank you Doni Miller and Sheena Barnes for joining me on our Virtual Chat. I thank them for providing their informed opinions on issues that we can bring to the legislature after recess to start important conversations. Thanks to the folks who listened in, and we hope to continue to have conversations like this to encourage transparency in our state government,” Rep. Hicks-Hudson said.
The Ohio Promise Virtual Town Hall Tour is a follow-up to the more than 25 in-person events Democratic lawmakers held in the summer of 2019. The digital events allow constituents to hear from lawmakers, ask questions and offer input on ways to address the issues facing their communities.
Democrats say the uncertainty felt by many in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, economic recession and civil unrest makes now the right time to get out and listen to what everyday Ohioans have to say.
