COLUMBUS–Senator Frank LaRose (R–Copley) today joined former State Representative Ted Celeste (D-Grandveiw Heights) to discuss ways to build trust through civil discourse in the legislature, at a roundtable hosted by the Akron Roundtable Board of Directors.
 
"The people of Ohio elected us so that we can work on their behalf," said LaRose. "In order to do that effectively, we need to work with our friends from both sides of the aisle and those of differing political opinion in order to best serve the people's interests."
 
Senator LaRose recently founded an informal civility work group with other members of the legislature from both parties to discuss ways to improve civility and work together in a bipartisan manner.
