State Senator Randy Gardner (R- Bowling Green) and Senator Capri Cafaro (D- Hubbard) announced Friday, Dec. 13, the formation of a new bipartisan Lake Erie Caucus of legislators which will hold its organizational meeting in January.
“Lake Erie is one of Ohio’s truly great natural assets,” said Gardner. “We just believe the lake and all it means to Ohio needs even more focus. As state legislators, we have an obligation to provide that focus and leadership.”
Gardner and Cafaro will serve as Senate joint chairs of the caucus. They expect additional Senate colleagues from both sides of the aisle will join the caucus due to Lake Erie’s significance in northern Ohio. Gardner and Cafaro are reaching out to members of the House of Representatives to join the caucus as well.
