COLUMBUS – State Rep. Terrence Upchurch (D-Cleveland) Wednesday following Governor Mike DeWine’s State of the State address that too many Ohioans find themselves living in a state they believe is headed in the wrong direction. House Democrats are committed to creating a better and brighter future for all Ohioans by continuing the fight to put people first.

“The state of Ohio still has some work to do. The Ohio Legislative Black Caucus will continue to push for common sense gun legislation, access to quality education and funding for maternal and infant health. Together, we will work tirelessly to create a better Ohio,” said Rep. Upchurch.

Putting people first will ensure all Ohioans—no matter your race, gender, or economic status—have the freedom to be who they are, the dignity of a safe community and secure job, and the opportunity to thrive.
