Video: George Voinovich at the 2010 DDC Fly-in in Washington, D.C.

Last week, Mike McDorman and I, along with several economic development leaders from the Dayton area and the Dayton Development Coalition, traveled to Washington, D.C. for the 26th Annual Dayton Region Community Leader Fly-in (the DDC Fly-in).  On Wednesday, we heard a lot of great talks during an Ohio Congressional lunch. Here is a video of U.S. Senator George Voinovich’s talk, discussing jobs, the environment, contracts and the government’s fiscal responsibility.  See video below:

About George Voinovich
From his time as member of the Ohio House of Representatives, Cuyahoga County Commissioner, Lieutenant Governor of Ohio, Mayor of Cleveland and Governor of Ohio, to his present role as Ohio’s senior United States Senator, George V. Voinovich has strived for more than 40 years to make all levels of government “work harder and smarter and do more with less.”

Praised as an “independent thinker – something Washington could use more of,” by Columbus CEO Magazine, George Voinovich consistently represents common sense, traditional Ohio values and fights for the Buckeye State’s economy. He believes that federal, state and local governments should honor their responsibilities to citizens, use taxpayer dollars efficiently, and bring growth to the economy.

George Voinovich has been calling for fiscal responsibility since the beginning of his career in public service. As mayor of Cleveland, USA Today credited him with “turning the nation’s 22nd largest city from a laughingstock in the 1970s into a three-time All-America City winner during the 1980s” after Cleveland became the first major city to declare bankruptcy since the Depression. His work rebuilding the city through public-private partnerships earned him praise from the National Urban Coalition, which hailed him as one of four distinguished urban mayors in America.
