The Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund Reacts to Mike DeWine’s Election as Ohio Governor

Columbus, Ohio -- The following statement can be attributed in full, or in part, to Heather Taylor-Miesle, President of the Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund:

“We applaud Mike DeWine on his victory in today’s gubernatorial election. The OEC Action Fund has a history of working effectively with elected officials in both parties, and that will continue. This cycle, we’ve endorsed both Democrats and Republicans, and our pragmatic, diligent approach to fight for Ohio’s environment will continue. 

“When it comes to our environment, Ohio is at a crossroads, and we need real leadership to ensure that we move forward to address serious issues like toxic algae on Lake Erie, and ensuring that Ohio competes in the clean energy economy. We will focus on making progress at all levels of government, including opportunities with Columbus and Cincinnati, who recently won Bloomberg's American Cities Climate Challenge. 

“The OEC Action Fund will be there every step of the way to fight for cleaner air, land, and water in Ohio.”
