State Rep. Nickie J. Antonio Chosen For Two Committees
Appointed to House Finance & Appropriations Committee and Subcommittee on Health & Human Services
State Representative Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood) was appointed to the House Finance and Appropriations Committee and the Subcommittee on Health and Human Services. These two additions will complement one another and reinforce areas of importance to Rep. Antonio as she currently is on the House Health and Aging Committee.
“The work of the House Finance & Appropriations committee is of vital importance to the people of House District 13 and I am honored to be chosen to serve,” said Rep. Antonio.
The Finance and Appropriations Committee is responsible for determining the state of Ohio’s biennial operating budget along with other state finances including the capital budget. The Subcommittee on Health and Human Services is an arm of the Finance and Appropriations Committee that addresses specific legislation that affects public health.
State Representative Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood) is honored to be serving her first term in the Ohio House of Representatives. House District 13 covers the city of Lakewood in its entirety and parts of Cleveland’s West Side including the Detroit Shoreway (Gordon Square), the Stockyards, West Boulevard, Cuddell, and a section of Ohio City. Representative Antonio is a civic minded humanitarian who is concerned with the quality of life of those around her. She is a founding member of the Community Relations Advisory Commission made up of residents that broadly represent social, economic and culturally diverse interests of Lakewood, Ohio. She currently serves on the Health and Aging Committee, Education Committee, Finance and Appropriations Committee, Finance Subcommittee on Health and Human Services, and the Commerce, Labor & Technology Committee. These committees are of special interest to Representative Antono as she will be able to stand up for working families, education, and health and human services. Daughters Ariel and Stacey, both Lakewood High School graduates, have made Nickie and partner Jean Kosmac very proud as the girls engage in their post-secondary pursuits
