Update! Contacting State Representatives and State Senators who did not write letters of support or advocate for our position

Apparently, several of you reached out to thank the representatives and senators who provided the letters to the Ohio Power Siting Board about the treatment of Deb Hay at the pubic meeting in November regarding the Emerson Creek Project. Matthew Noonan, Legislative Aide to Representative Dick Stein, thanked everyone for your messages of gratitude, but indicated they were not necessary. He recommended contact be made with those other representatives and senators who did not write letters of support or advocate for our position.

Below are the members of various committees in the Ohio House and Senate, who Mr. Noonan was alluding to in his message of yesterday, and instructions of how to email them.

It is very important that members of the Ohio General Assembly hear from their local residents on issues being addressed in the legislature impacting municipalities, counties, and townships. It is also crucial that legislators are made aware of issues happening in their districts. So, contacting members of the Ohio legislature is important and easy.

To reach members of the Ohio House of Representatives via email, each House email address begins with the letters REP (short for Representative) followed by the number of the House district that member represents and then @ohiohouse.gov.       

Example: Rep92@ohiohouse.gov

To reach members of the Ohio Senate via email, member’s addresses begin with the senators last name followed by @ohiosenate.gov. Example: Smith@ohiosenate.gov
