Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Some veterans in the Miami Valley are talking about the importance of issues affecting veterans in the upcoming gubernatorial election and have formed the Ohio Veterans Network.

Nearly 900,000 veterans live in Ohio and will be impacted by the election of Ohio’s next governor.

Wednesday, they held a roundtable discussion in Dayton.

“Healthcare affects all, not just veterans, so we want to make sure we are advocating to improve healthcare for all Ohioans. Quality of life issues like unlivable income affect all, not just veterans and their families, so we weigh in on issues like that as well,” says Zach Roberts, Lead Organizer of the Ohio Veterans Network.

Veteran and Montgomery County Recorder Brandon McClain said, “We are talking about people who fought for the very freedoms that we hold sacred, so when you look at that, so those type of people, our veterans, must always be at the forefront of every conversation involving our nation.”
