State Reps. Brigid Kelly (D-Cincinnati), Catherine Ingram (D-Cincinnati), Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati), and Jessica Miranda (D-Forest Park) today issued the following statements in response to House Bill (HB) 680, the Ohio House Republican Caucus general election plan:
COLUMBUS— Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) today signed onto a House resolution that would designate racism as a public health crisis, echoing similar calls in Cleveland and Franklin County. The resolution, if passed, would be the first of its kind passed at the state level.
COLUMBUS—Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) today applauded the passage of Aisha’s Law, Democratic priority legislation sponsored by Rep. Janine Boyd (D-Cleveland Heights) that would change how law enforcement agencies respond to domestic violence cases and provide added protections for those in high-risk situations. Democrats say the bill’s passage comes at a critical time as prolonged isolation during the state’s stay-at-home order has led to a spike in domestic violence cases.
COLUMBUS—State Representative Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) today released a statement following the dangerous and partisan attack on Dr. Amy Acton by House Republicans:
COLUMBUS— State lawmakers returned to the Statehouse today to address the COVID-19 crisis and provide immediate relief to everyday Ohioans. State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) released a statement today following the unanimous passage of an omnibus bill (HB 197) that would prohibit utility shut-offs, waive state testing requirements, freeze EdChoice eligibility, extend voting in the primary election, postpone the state income tax filing deadline among several other measures.
State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) today released the following statement in celebration of National Voter Registration Day:
“It is absolutely crucial to be registered to vote, and to keep that information updated” said Rep. Denson. “Dozens and dozens of voters in my district have been removed from the rolls- many of whom merely moved within Hamilton Co. itself. County Boards of Election can only be successful when the information they receive from the Secretary of State is complete and correct.”
State Reps. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati), Catherine Ingram (D-Cincinnati), Brigid Kelly (D-Cincinnati) and Jessica E. Miranda (D-Forest Park) held a community town hall last Thursday as part of the Ohio Promise Town Hall Tour, a statewide legislative town hall series hosted by House Democratic members. The purpose of the tour is to hear from constituents in their districts about their most pressing concerns, answer questions, and discuss the state budget, bipartisan priorities and a number of recent Democratic-led, legislative wins for working people and families.
“I really appreciate People Working Cooperatively allowing us to use their beautiful space,” said Rep. Denson. “I enjoyed hearing the thoughts and concerns of those in attendance, and can’t wait to incorporate that into what I’m doing in Columbus at the Statehouse.”
State Reps. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati), Catherine Ingram (D-Cincinnati), Brigid Kelly (D-Cincinnati) and Jessica Miranda (D-Forest Park) today announced a town hall meeting on Thursday, August 15th at 6:00 p.m. at People Working Cooperatively to discuss the state budget, bipartisan priorities and a number of recent Democratic-led wins for working people and families in Hamilton County.
“This is a great opportunity for members of the community to share their thoughts and concerns with us,” said Rep. Denson. “I’m looking forward to getting feedback from my constituents and putting it to work in Columbus.”
State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Cincinnati) today issued a statement in opposition to House Bill (HB) 6, a Republican-sponsored bill to bail out Ohio’s nuclear power plants and subsidize two additional coal-fired power plants that service the state. The bill also guts Ohio’s renewable and energy efficiency standards, which opponents say will hurt job growth in emerging clean energy industries.
“This is truly disappointing,” said Denson. “Unfortunately, this HB 6 isn’t about jobs or clean energy like proponents would like us to believe. This bill is about bending to the will of a corporation by giving them a bag full of hard working Ohioans’ money.”
House Democratic lawmakers from across Ohio today sent a letter to Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose seeking information from his office about the impact of moving the 2020 presidential primary from March 10 to March 17, St. Patrick’s Day. See the letter below.
