COLUMBUS –State Rep. Mary Lightbody (D-Westerville) 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.
“This is an unprecedented moment in the history of our country. Ohioans have questions and concerns on a broad range of issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, their jobs, their schools, and their lives,” Rep. Lightbody said. "My highest priority is to be accessible and available to listen and to provide assistance. My Franklin County colleagues and I are leading these conversations to provide information to our constituents and to answer their questions. We work for Ohioans and will always fight for their protection and safety, especially in these difficult times.”
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.
