Just three weeks following the passage of the biennial budget—House Bill 153—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) has enjoyed the support of school leaders who believe that the budget solutions, albeit difficult, maintained the integrity of Ohio’s schools.

Solon Schools Superintendent Joseph Regano recently expressed his gratitude and support for Rep. Anielski’s commitment to balancing the state budget without damaging schools. In a statement, Regano expressed the following to the representative:

“I wanted to say thank you for the magnificent job you did representing your constituency during the most recent budget crisis. Your attention to detail, listening skills and problem-solving abilities are without peer. You listened, you cared and you achieved; what more can we ask of anyone who represents us.

“Solon Schools averted a financial disaster because of your insistence at finding a solution. Many would have given up, but you did not. On behalf of all of us who benefited from your hard work, we say thank you. It may be your first term as representative, but it will not be your last success. We all look forward to working with you and being supportive of you in your role.”

In response to Superintendent Regano’s words of support, Rep. Anielski released the following statement:

“I am deeply touched and humbled by Superintendent Regano’s support and praise. As a first-term legislator, I have maintained a strong connection to the schools within the 17th District—the same schools that keep our community strong and educate our children. From Mayfield Heights to Brecksville, the school systems in our district are of the utmost importance to me and my work in Columbus. I genuinely thank Superintendent Regano for his support and look forward to continuing our work together in the future.”

On June 29th, Rep. Anielski voted for a budget that added more than $100 million in additional dollars over the executive budget version to the school foundation formula, while also guaranteeing that no district would receive a cut in state aid.
