State Rep. and House Democratic Leader Fred Strahorn is expected to take questions from the public Monday at a town hall meeting in Dayton. The event was organized by the activist group Dayton Indivisible For All to call attention to the ongoing state budget process.

Governor Kasich must sign the two-year budget bill by the end of this month. State legislators recently cut $800 million out of the upcoming budget due to lower than expected tax revenues.

Dayton Public Schools teachers are prepared to strike if contract negotiations with the school district don’t improve, according to a statement from the Dayton Education Association.

 

The teachers union announced Thursday its members voted in favor of authorizing a strike notice in the future, “should the status of contract negotiations not improve.”  A strike notice is a legal requirement giving the district 10 days' warning of a walkout.
