Ohio Legislative Updates
All eyes are on Cleveland as the city will elect a new mayor for the first time in 16 years on Tuesday. Nonprofit leader Justin Bibb and Cleveland City Council President Kevin Kelley will vie to be mayor of Cleveland replacing Mayor Frank Jackson, who has held the position since 2006. Bibb leads Kelley by 9 points in the latest poll conducted by Baldwin Wallace University but 40% of respondents are still undecided.
The Ohio Legislature is back in action after summer recess and started hearings and session after Labor Day. At the forefront of the General Assembly agenda is redistricting. Already, a lawsuit has been filed arguing the maps violate provisions in the Ohio Constitution against being drawn to favor or disfavor a political party. Provisions in the budget are now underway and the legislature will work to pass more bills before the end of the year.
