If you are an Ohio Constituent visiting Washington, DC you are invited to my weekly constituent coffee. My staff and I hold these coffees in order to stay in touch with Ohioans and get feedback on how we are doing. Feel free to stop by. Coffees are generally held on Thursdays when the Senate is in session in room SVC 201 of the Capitol Visitors Center from 8:30 to 9:15 AM. For more information, see the coffee section on my homepage.
