State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) today received the “Elected Official Advocacy Award” from the Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging.
The award was presented to Rep. Romanchuk because of his efforts in the Ohio House in helping older adults in Ohio. As a member of the House Finance Committee and its subcommittee on Health and Human Services, he played an active role in discussion regarding health issues and the state operating budget. Rep. Romanchuk also regularly champions legislation concerning workforce development and sponsored a bill this year that lowered the business filing fee in the state, making it easier and cheaper to start a business. The award also recognizes his work with constituents to address local community needs.
“I am both humbled and honored to receive this award from the Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging,” Rep. Romanchuk said. “Working with my community and constituents, especially our seniors, in Richland County is my priority as a legislator and I look forward to continuing to address issues on health and workforce development in the state.”
Romanchuk is currently serving his second term in the House. He represents the 2nd District, which comprises all of Richland County.
