Did you know that you can call your state legislator toll-free and 24-hours a day? The Ohio Legislative Service Commission recently installed an answering machine service that can be accessed day and night. It is vital for our elected officials to hear from our constituents and this initiative gives Ohioans another outlet to voice their thoughts, concerns and questions. The Legislative Service Commission will still answer calls made between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on the toll free number, but constituents may now leave messages for their representatives after normal work hours at 1-800-282-0253. Simply leave a clear message with your name, phone number, and full mailing address. The agency will then forward the information to the appropriate office. This is a versatile way to take advantage of available technology and respond to the needs of Ohioans. Ofcourse, I am always available to speak and work with my Stark County constituents directly. My district phone number is (330) 433-9394 and my Columbus Statehouse office phone number is (614) 466-0626. E-mail is another great way to contact me. Share your voice by writing me at or send me mail at the Ohio Senate, Room 226, Columbus, Ohio 43215. I look forward to working with you and doing my best to address your concerns.
Senator Oelslager represents Ohio's 29th District which contains a portion of Stark County. He serves as Chairman of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee.

COLUMN: Improving Ohio's Criminal Justice System, "Save The Crew" And Addressing Shared Priorities


Last week was the busiest yet in Columbus with a number of bills moving through committees and onto the Senate and House floors for votes. Not only did we celebrate March 1 as Ohio’s Statehood Day, recognizing the day in 1803 when the Ohio General Assembly met for the first time, but legislators were also visited by a number of statewide advocacy groups that championed their great causes. I am excited to share some of the effective legislation my colleagues and I were able to pass as we continue to serve our Ohio citizens.


COLUMN: Protecting Victims Of Dating Violence, Neurofibromatosis Awareness And Serving Ohioans


My colleagues in the Ohio Senate and I are working hard to protect victims of dating violence and ensure that our citizens have access to domestic violence shelters to receive the care they need. Last week, I was proud to co-sponsor House Bill 1, sponsored by State Representatives Nathan Manning (R – North Ridgeville) and Emilia Sykes (D – Akron). This legislation expands Ohio law, authorizing courts to issue domestic violence protection orders to protect victims of dating violence in current or former dating relationships. Passed unanimously by members of the Ohio Senate, House Bill 1 also expands resources to provide greater access to domestic violence shelters for victims.
