COLUMBUS — Ohio House Minority Leader Emilia Strong Sykes (D-Akron) issued a statement today as House Republicans filed articles of impeachment against fellow Republican Gov. Mike DeWine.

“Instead of working to rebuild the public’s trust or calling the House back from summer recess to address the very real public health and economic crises Ohio currently faces by focusing on protecting small businesses and slowing the spread of COVID-19, Republicans continue to fight one another over political power.

Ohioans deserve better leadership and I hope Republicans re-focus their attention towards the struggling Ohioans who need them to serve instead of enriching and promoting themselves.”
