COLUMBUS – State Rep. Erica Crawley (D-Columbus) yesterday 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, jobs and the economy, racial justice and gun safety.
“It was great to hear from my neighbors about the things that are important to them,” Rep. Crawley said. “I want each of my neighbors to be able to live the Ohio Promise; live the American dream right here in Ohio, work hard and get ahead, put their families first, and live, work, and retire with safety and security. Yesterday evening my neighbors shared what they love about our state and what they want to see to make our state even better so that everyone can achieve the Ohio Promise. As an elected official, I work for my neighbors and it is my responsibility to put their interests first. I am grateful for all who were in attendance and all of the input that was shared. I look forward to working on the issues we discussed yesterday and to our next conversation.”
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.
