OTP 2016 June 13: Voinovich remembered as a ‘titan of Ohio politics’

Rep. Mike Turner, R-Dayton, who was Dayton’s mayor when Voinovich was governor, said that Voinovich’s “support for projects like the baseball stadium, the Schuster Center and RiverScape MetroPark were essential and he intervened to ensure that Dayton was identified as a destination along I-70. His work in the U.S. Senate was incredibly important for sustaining Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. My prayers are with his family at this difficult time.”

Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, said Voinovich “impacted every community in our state,” adding it was her “privilege to work with him on a bipartisan basis and always find common ground in the public interest.”

Rep. Pat Tiberi, a Republican from suburban Columbus, said he was “a remarkable leader and public servant,” while Rep. Steve Stivers, R-Upper Arlington, hailed him as “a role model of how to lead in public office.”
