Issues discussed Thursday at Dover could end up in federal legislation.

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Avon Lake, hosted a two-hour roundtable discussion in the Tuscarawas County Senior Center at Dover. Joining him were U.S. Rep. Zack Space, D-Dover, and 16 elected officials and community leaders.

Brown said his goal is to host sessions in all 88 Ohio counties. He called the format the best way to learn more about the needs of county residents. Some of the input provided may wind up in legislation he sponsors in Congress.

“The needs of Ohio middle class families must be heard in Washington,” Brown said. “This roundtable discussion is a way that we can work together to set new policies in Washington that reflect the values of families in Tuscarawas County.”
