Tuesday, October 30, 2018
Ohio Republican Congressman Mike Turner (R-10) was in Dayton to celebrate revitalization progress in downtown Dayton. Turner was joined by Congressman Brad Wenstrup of Ohio’s 2nd District.
Wenstrup is the newest member of Congressional House Ways and Means Committee, which oversees tax and economic development policies.
Wenstrup's District represents parts of the Cincinnati metro area and a large swath of southern Ohio. Congressman Turner led his colleague on a tour of Dayton sites he says represent the city’s efforts to stimulate downtown development.
“There are more people living, working and enjoying downtown than there were twenty years ago. “We have used federal programs such as low-income housing tax credits, brownfield redevelopment tax credits, new market tax credits - all of which are important ways for us to stack with local money and state money, redevelopment dollars to help change the community,”
