Senator Bob Peterson released the following statement on the governor’s request to hold his annual State of the State Address at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio on February 24, 2015: 

"Ohio has been through a great deal of hard times and transition over the last decade, and the economic struggles of our community have been well documented," said Peterson. "But thanks to the strong leadership of Governor Kasich and my Republican colleagues in the legislature, our state is on its way back, and so is Wilmington. I can't think of a better place for the governor to outline his vision for Ohio's future as he starts his second term. 

This will be a great opportunity for our community to showcase the strong values and can-do spirit that I see every day in my friends and neighbors who are a big part of Ohio's comeback story."
