State Senator Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) completed the recent legislative session with his career-long 100% voting record intact.
Gardner, who represents Fulton, Lucas, Wood, Ottawa and Erie counties in the Senate, did not miss any roll call votes during the first half of 2013 (149 votes). He has not missed a roll call vote on any bill or amendment as a member of the House of Representatives or Senate since 1985, bringing his consecutive voting streak to 9,281 votes.
“It is a great honor to represent this region of our state in the Ohio Senate,” Gardner said. “We’ve tackled many issues highlighted by increased funding for schools and tax cuts for citizens and small businesses. In addition, the budget provides more attention for Lake Erie and stronger support for veterans.”
Gardner is serving this year as chairman of the Finance Subcommittee on Education in addition to the Senate Transportation Committee and the Workforce Development Committee, among others.
