State Representative Nino Vitale will be featured in an open forum Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m. in the main auditorium of the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center,2280 SR 540, Bellefontaine. State Representative Vitale will discuss his first year in office representing the 85th District and field questions from the audience. During the past year I have found Mr. Vitale to be a very good representative who is accessible to those who call, email or write him. He has taken the time to poll people about their position on issues and has taken time after he votes to explain why he has cast his vote one way or the other. I want to encourage the people of Logan County to come out to meet Mr. Vitale and ask him questions. We need people to get involved in our political process and let their representatives know what they expect from them or how they feel about issues.
