Our Founding Fathers came together on July 4, 1776 from across the 13 colonies to declare independence and establish what would become the most free and representative society in history. The thirteen independent colonies became the "united states" of America and in doing so secured the unalienable rights such as Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness endowed by our Creator.
"I'm honored to recognize these student-athletes from Ohio Valley Christian as they continue the school's tradition of success on and off the court," said Peterson. "Their resounding victory in this year's state championship has made the community proud and I look forward to seeing them back on the court next season."
State Senator Bob Peterson (R-Washington Court House) issued the following statement today regarding testimony provided on House Bill 166 which is currently under consideration in the Senate Ways and Means Committee:
“As Ohioans begin filing last year's tax returns, it’s imperative that we make sure they have access to every possible deducation and credit they are entitled to,” said Peterson. “This bill provides the necessary updates to make sure no one pays more taxes than required.”
"This one of a kind fellowship offers unique insight into the day-to-day operations of the General Assembly," said Peterson. "With many notable alumni, including our very own Governor John Kasich, the prestigious LSC fellowship is a wonderful opportunity for young people interested in public service careers."
"Director Mohr's commitment toward addressing Ohio's drug epidemic by expanding access to treatment and recovery support services make him most deserving of this award," said Peterson. "Under his leadership, Ohio's recidivism rate has dropped to one of the lowest in the nation."
"These young men have represented Ohio and their university well," said Peterson. "National championships are won through hard work and resilience and this diverse group of student-athletes put forth a level of dedication that has paid off."
“Since being elected to the Ohio General Assembly in 2010, working toward building a better Ohio has been my primary goal as a Legislator," said Peterson. “Step by step, bill by bill, we have done just that. Ohio is coming back.”
