How fortunate we are to have a Great Lake as a border.  How easy it would be to take it for granted.  We are learning that even a Great Lake can be vulnerable to bad practices and equally bad government policies.

In an effort to protect the lake, a bipartisan legislative caucus with members from the Ohio Senate and House formed the Lake Erie Caucus.

Led by State Senator Randy Gardner, whose district includes the most Lake Erie shoreline of any senate district in Ohio, the Lake Erie Caucus will focus on the critical issues impacting Lake Erie.  And there is plenty to worry about: algae blooms, protecting safe drinking water, battling Asian Carp, tourism and jobs, top a long list.

Yes, Lake Erie is an amazing and massive asset - as long as it remains healthy.

Sen. Gardner promised he would provide me with regular updates from the Lake Erie Caucus.  I believe he will lead this group with passion and a deep-held respect and concern for the future of Lake Erie.   We should all want him to be successful.  I promise to keep you updated.
