COLUMBUS—State Rep. Terry Johnson (R-McDermott) was appointed by Ohio House Speaker William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) to serve as one of two Ohio House members on the Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC). The OSFC administers the state’s comprehensive Kindergarten through 12th Grade public school construction program. The agency helps school districts to fund, plan, design, and build or renovate schools.

“Representative Johnson will make a noted addition to the Ohio School Facilities Commission panel,” Speaker Batchelder said. “He has a firm grasp of the issues facing school construction in our state, and I am confident that he will utilize the appointment to improve the overall program.”

Rep. Johnson said that he looked forward to working with his fellow legislative members and the other members of the commission, which include Tim Keen, Director of the Office of Budget and Management; Robert Blair, Director of the Ohio Department of Administrative Services; and Deborah Delisle, Ohio’s Superintendent of Public Instruction.

“I am excited about this appointment since the 89th House District has three current OSFC projects in various stages of development,” Rep. Johnson said. “We cannot overemphasize the importance of these projects to our community, from the jobs they provide during construction and operation, through the final product where our kids will learn in a safe, state-of-the-art environment. I truly look forward to serving on this commission and serving the citizens of the state of Ohio.”

Rep. Johnson is serving his first term in the Ohio House of Representatives. The 89th House District includes all of Scioto County and parts of Adams and Lawrence counties.
