Entry Title Date
Congratulating Columbus, Ohio, On Winning The Smart City Challenge June 23, 2016
Rob Portman, R-OH
"I thank and commend the more than 100 organizations from Central Ohio that were part of this that expressed interest in working with Columbus on improving this infrastructure—organizations such as the Battelle research institute, the Ohio State University and their research on transportation, Clean Fuels Ohio, and the IBM Analytics Data Center. The Ohio State University had other departments involved in this, as well, in terms of engineering and so on, and dozens of others."
Tribute To John Glenn And Recognizing The John Glenn Columbus International Airport June 23, 2016
Rob Portman, R-OH
"John Glenn is the last surviving member of a group of military test pilots known as the Mercury Seven, who participated in the early stages of space exploration in the United States. Glenn was one of America’s first astronauts whom NASA selected to fly the Project Mercury spacecraft. He would later return to space in 1998, becoming the oldest person to go into space. In the same year of his return to space, John Glenn helped found the John Glenn Institute of Public Service and Public Policy at the Ohio State University which recently has grown and expanded to become the John Glenn College of Public Affairs. It is one of the best public policy colleges in the country, and I am honored to serve on the advisory board. I have seen firsthand how his legacy is helping to create future leaders."
Congratulating Columbus, Ohio, On Winning The Smart City Challenge June 23, 2016
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"Today’s award wouldn’t have happened without a very long list of regional partners. I can’t name them all, but the Ohio State University, the Columbus Partnership, Columbus 2020, Battelle, Nationwide, Honda, American Electric Power, and many, many more came together to build the application, and they will be working side by side with the city to roll out this vision."
Michael Garver Oxley Memorial Post Office Building June 21, 2016
Brenda Lawrence, D-MI
"Mr. Oxley was elected to the Ohio State House of Representatives at the age of 28 and won a special election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1981. Serving as the chair of the Committee on Financial Services, Congressman Oxley devoted himself to corporate oversight and insurance protection issues. He also led efforts to investigate Enron and other corporate scandals, and is perhaps most well known for the new accounting requirements and financial regulations enacted by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act."
Recognizing Richard (Dick) L. Royer June 14, 2016
Steve Stivers, R-OH
"Royer was born in 1938 in Canton, Ohio, where he attended Canton Lehman High School. He earned his degree from The Ohio State University College of Business in 1962, and soon after, joined the real estate company Kohr and Kohr where he would spend his entire business career. Over 50 years later, the firm still operates today as Kohr, Royer, Griffith Inc. (KRG). Royer’s service to the real estate industry in Columbus was fueled by his love for the city."
