Statement on Ohio's US Senate race, in response to Jay Faison’s comments in Cleveland, from OEC Action Fund President Heather Taylor-Miesle
"Ted Strickland is ready to act on climate change, which is currently reeking havoc on Lake Erie along our north coast and in mighty Ohio River, is helping to drive up asthma attacks in children across the state, and putting Ohio’s economy behind as we watch surrounding states invest in the the future of energy instead of holding onto the past.
Senator Rob Portman has had the opportunity to lead on climate in the Senate and it just hasn’t happened. We need someone ready to change the debate.”
