State Rep. Monica Robb Blasdel (R-Columbiana County) has provided the following update regarding the issues surrounding East Palestine:
“On Thursday, February 16, I visited East Palestine again and spoke with residents, business owners in the city, and met with local elected officials. I also had the opportunity to speak with students from East Palestine High School, and I assured them that their safety is my number one priority. I continue to engage with my constituents who have been reaching out to my office, and we are addressing individual needs and concerns on a daily basis.
“I fully understand the magnitude of concern from the community. I want you to know that I am here, willing to engage, and ready to take action for you at the Statehouse. Please do not hesitate to contact my office with any issues your family is facing during this difficult time.”
