Hottinger Named 2017 Public Elected Official Of The Year By Ohio Social Workers
March 7, 2018

COLUMBUS—The National Association of Social Workers in Ohio recently named State Senator Jay Hottinger (R-Newark) as the 2017 Public Elected Official of the Year. 

“Ohio’s Social Workers are on the frontline in the state’s opioid fight, so I am proud to have earned their recognition,” said Senator Hottinger. “For the children who have parents battling addiction, a social worker and our County Public Children Service Agencies are the lifeline they need to stay on the right path.”

The award is given to a public official who has made outstanding contributions to the region. Hottinger worked to secure an additional $20 million in H.B. 49 for Ohio’s County Public Children Service Agencies who have seen a major increase in the number of children in their care due to the opioid epidemic.

Senator Hottinger was nominated for the award by Mindy Fehrman, the former Director of Coshocton County Jobs and Family Services, retiring in 2017 after 31 years of service. 

Region 8 of the National Association of Social Workers Ohio Chapter includes; Ashland, Coshocton, Crawford, Holmes, Knox, Marion, Morrow, Richland, Stark, Tuscarawas and Wayne counties.
