Ohio gubernatorial candidates to meet with Ohio Regional Councils

The two candidates for Governor of the State of Ohio have accepted an invitation to meet with the Ohio Association of Regional Councils (OARC) at a meeting in Columbus, Monday, August 21.

Kenneth Blackwell and Ted Strickland will detail their platforms and answer questions in separate 60-minute sessions.

Kenneth Blackwell

OARC comprises 21 regional councils serving 1525 municipalities, villages, townships, and counties and representing 10,500,000 residents of those communities around the state. The regional agencies serve areas that cover multiple jurisdictions crossing county and some state boundaries. Traditionally, the role of a regional council of governments has been to manage traffic planning, land use, and air quality control: issues which cross jurisdictional boundaries and necessitate non-partisan cooperation.

As population spreads out from cities and suburbs, and development incorporates multiple jurisdictions, regional councils have become a forum for elected officials discussing many diverse issues. Working with their members, regional councils also work to form a consensus on legislative issues to take to state and federal lawmakers.

At the August 21 meeting, OARC will show the candidates how regional councils work and what role they play in the state. Local elected officials and regional council members will be asking how the candidates will support the mission of regional councils, to help councils continue to encourage intergovernmental cooperation and collaboration.

Ted Strickland
