Tony Hall

Alliance to End Hunger

Former Ohio Governor George Voinovich died on Sunday. He was 80 years old. Those who worked with him describe him as a  “titan” in Ohio Politics.  Former Ohio State legislator and U.S. Congressman Tony Hall says he and Voinovich became close friends in their time serving Ohio. Hall spoke to WYSO's Jerry Kenney by phone on Monday and shared his memories of the Governor. 

Former Democratic Congressman Tony Hall was in Dayton today to promote awareness for the hungry. He's been fasting for 18 days, drinking water and some juice and he plans to continue the fast until the end of next week. Hall said he's fasting for three reasons. One is to remind Americans about the hunger issues in the country and to urge people to action, or what he calls a circle of protection. The third reason was political.
