Welcome to the Meet Your Ohio Leaders Video Library
We want to help you learn about Ohio's elected officials. With COVID-19 restrictions, student field trips and visits to government buildings have taken a halt. While we fully expect these to continue in the future, we are learning how much can be done virtually. The Meet Your Ohio Leaders Library will include a collection of personal testimonies from all branches and levels of Ohio's government where you can learn about your representatives in a more personal way.
The library is free to everyone and will be available beginning February 10, 2021. This library is being built in waves. Here is what you can expect:
Videos from state legislators (the Ohio House of Representatives and Ohio Senate) - available beginning on 2/10/2021
Videos from United States elected officials from Ohio (U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate), Ohio's executive branch (Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Supreme Court of Ohio Justices, State School Board Members, etc.) - available beginning on 3/10/2021
