Union Township, Clermont County Ohio (April 19, 2021) – On Friday, April 16, the Clermont County Chamber of Commerce hosted Representative Adam Bird by visiting several small businesses, community leaders, and elected officials throughout Ohio’s 66th District.
The day started with a meeting at the University of Cincinnati Clermont College with Dean Jeff Bauer. The two discussed possible changes to the College Credit Program and how the university is preparing for the upcoming school year. Next, Representative Bird met with Michael McNamara, the Director of Community and Economic Development for Clermont County, to discuss some of the ongoing and upcoming projects occurring throughout the county. Then it was onto Milacron in Williamsburg where President Mac Jones provided a tour and discussed his issues regarding workforce development. Afterwards, Shane Knisley, President of Mercy Health Clermont Hospital, hosted a meeting to discuss access to rural healthcare, the importance of broadband and tele-medicine, and the continuing opioid epidemic. The day ended with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Golden Grace Boutique in the Village of Batavia.
“The residents of Ohio’s 66th House District are blessed to have Representative Adam Bird represent them in the Ohio House of Representatives. His dedication to small businesses and local government was on full display during all of our meetings and we are honored to call him a friend of the Chamber,” said Director of Government Affairs Andrew McAfee.
Representative Bird was first elected to represent Ohio’s 66th District in 2020. He is currently the Vice Chair of the Primary and Secondary Education Committee, as well as a Member of the Agriculture and Conservation, Health, and Higher Education and Career Readiness Committees.
“It is vital that we do everything we can in Columbus to ensure government stays out of the way of our small businesses so they can thrive and prosper. I’m proud to have such a strong relationship with the Clermont Chamber and was thrilled to spend the day listening to how I can better represent our businesses in Columbus.”
Andrew and the Chamber are looking forward to working alongside Representative Bird and the rest of our General Assembly delegation to advocate for our members and make a positive impact in the community.
