COLUMBUS—Yesterday, State Senator Lou Terhar (R-Cincinnati) was re-appointed by Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) to serve on the Governor's Advisory Board of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.
"I look forward to continuing our important work on the Board to break down barriers to collaboration so that we can ensure we are doing what is most beneficial for our communities," said Terhar. "Providing our faith-based and community organizations the support they need is an important piece of the puzzle as we work to raise up all Ohioans."
The Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives serves as a clearinghouse of information on federal, state and local funding for charitable services performed by organizations. They advise the Governor, General Assembly and the Advisory Board of the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives on the barriers that exist to collaboration between organizations and governmental entities and ways to remove those barriers.
Terhar previously served as a member during the 132nd General Assembly. During the 133rd General Assembly, he will work alongside Director Michele Reynolds, who was chosen as the Board's director earlier this year.
