“I am so grateful to be able to represent the community in which I was born and raised as a State Senator,” Mr Antani mentioned quickly after being sworn-in.
Mr Antani will serve a full four-year time period.
“I will continue to work hard every day for each Ohioan so that they can have the opportunity to achieve their American dream. In this uncertain economic and health time, we must diligently strive to enact policies for the benefit of all Ohioans,” Mr Antani mentioned.
