RELEASE: House Republicans Name Representative Grossman to Leadership Team

COLUMBUS - Ohio House Republicans today named State Representative Cheryl Grossman (R-Grove City) as the newest addition to their leadership team for the remainder of the 128th General Assembly.

“I am proud to serve on my caucus’s leadership team and have the opportunity to share the ideas and concerns of the 23rd House District,” said Grossman. “There are so many critical issues facing the state of Ohio, and it is an honor to have the confidence of my legislative colleagues.”

Grossman will join Republican Leader William G. Batchelder (R-Medina), Assistant Republican Leader Louis W. Blessing, Jr. (R-Colerain Township), and Whip John Adams (R-Sidney) as the Assistant Whip. The Assistant Whip was elected by all members of the caucus and is responsible for supporting the Republican Whip in monitoring legislation and securing votes for legislation on the floor.

“Ohio’s focus must be concentrated on creating jobs and strengthening our economy,” Batchelder said. “Representative Grossman is a great asset to moving our state in the right direction.”
