My staff is trained to recommend state resources that are available to Ohioans. When you encounter difficulty resolving an issue, please don’t hesitate to call me and ask for help. Recently, a family member of one of our soldiers brought to my attention the distressing veteran suicide rates. He wanted to know how his state was addressing the issue. After some research, I was able to follow-up with him and bring to his attention a multi-agency program in Ohio that monitors and helps veterans with mental health issues.
“Creation of the Perry County Municipal Court will help to address the growing caseload and allow for more personalized attention to be given to drug-related cases, which has the potential to reduce recidivism,” said Hottinger.
“It is a privilege to be chosen to serve on the Ohio Ballot Board," said Senator Hottinger. "I look forward to working with Secretary Husted and the rest of the Board to ensure that the issues put before Ohio's voters are easy to understand and consistent with the rules laid out in Ohio law."
“The Legislative Service Commission fellows that I have had the privilege of working with are incredibly smart and driven individuals who have gone on to great careers in government and the private sector," said Hottinger. "I encourage any new college graduate to apply to this meaningful fellowship because they will acquire the experience and skills necessary to be successful in life.”
“Senate Bill 5 is an important piece of legislation in pursuit of the Ohio Senate’s goal to reduce the financial burden of higher education because it will allow Ohio taxpayers to keep more of their hard earned money if it is set aside into a college savings account. The legislation also helps families who have a child with a disability by increasing the maximum tax deductions for Ohio’s ABLE saving accounts.”
Drunk driving remains a major hazard on Ohio’s roadways. Motorists who chose to get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol claimed the lives of more than 350 Ohioans last year. The decision to drink and drive is senseless and inexcusable.
“I’m honored to receive the Champion of Public Education award in its inaugural year,” said Hottinger. "I'm a proud product of public schools and happy to work with our schools to address their challenges as they strive to continually improve the quality of education they provide our students.”
