Beatty Holds State of the District and Town Hall Meeting for 114th Congress

Event focused on the progress and road ahead for the Third Congressional District, and recognition of constituents making a difference in the community

COLUMBUS, OH. – On May 3, 2016, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) held her State of the District and Town Hall Meeting for the 114th Congress at East High School. At the event, Beatty discussed her work in the District and in the nation’s capital, highlighted her legislative accomplishments, and fielded questions from residents of Ohio’s Third Congressional District.

In front of a crowd of more than 500 people, Beatty talked about two pieces of legislation that she shepherded into law: her youth anti-human trafficking bill, H.R. 246, and legislation to give teachers a tax deduction for out-of-pocket school supplies, H.R. 2692. In addition, Beatty recognized exemplary individuals and organizations for their outstanding work in service to the Third District.

“Together we have made progress here at home, but the work continues,” Beatty said. “That is why I am fighting each and every day to create greater opportunities for my constituents, Ohioans and all Americans. Everyone should not only be able to dream the American Dream, but also be able to live it.”

During the Town Hall portion of the event, Beatty was asked a variety of questions, including on expanding economic opportunity, community development and campaign finance reform, among other topics. “It is crucial to my job to discuss the issues that matter most to my constituents, let them know what I am doing and hear from them directly on what they may need.” Beatty continued, “Last night’s Town Hall was another excellent opportunity to do just that. I look forward to continuing the conversation and my work on their behalf.” 

Joining Beatty for the State of the District and Town Hall Meeting were Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther, State Representative Heather Bishoff (Ohio House District 20) and a host of Central Ohio officials and community leaders.
