Local Government Fund

Over the last seven years, the Republicans in Columbus have funded giant tax breaks for the ultra-wealthy and the big corporations by cutting the funds that paid for police, fire, schools, roads, and local services that families and communities have relied on for support.

These local government cuts have forced municipalities across the state to slash critical services – costing thousands of jobs and exasperating an already out of control opioid crisis.

As governor, Connie is committed to reversing these cuts and giving local leaders the tools they need to fight crime, staff emergency rooms, take care of abused children, and rebuild our roads and bridges.
