Thank Democrats for local project

Dear Editor,

I just read the very nice front-page article in the March 24th Times Leader about the $3.3 million awarded for a community-based health and wellness center using funds from the American Rescue Plan Act.

The center will be located on the Ohio University Eastern Campus near St. Clairsville, OH. While there was a photo of several Republican politicians sitting on the stage receiving praise for making this project possible, the article did not give credit to those actually responsible for the source of the funding for this project.

In 2021, the Democrats in the House and Senate passed the American Rescue Plan Act, which was signed into law by President Joe Biden. Every Republican in the House and Senate voted NO on this bill. I repeat: EVERY Republican voted NO. The only Ohio politicians who had the right to be on that stage getting credit for this project are Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown and the Democratic House Representatives from Ohio who voted for the bill and made this funding possible. Thank you, Senator Sherrod Brown!
