Eklund, Mueller Talk About Balancing the Budget & Cuts To The Local Government Fund
Mueller and Eklund differ on if bipartisan bickering is hampering progress in Columbus
The Lake County chambers of commerce, including the Mentor Area Chamber, hosted a forum for the region's state and national legislative candidates last week at LaMalfa Centre.
Eklund and Mueller were asked about the state budget and economy.
Eklund said he was proud of the legislature for passing a budget that shored up an $8 billion hole.
Mueller replied that the state did it on the backs of the local governments by slashing the money they received from the local government fund.
The city of Mentor was split in two during the state's recent redistricting. Consequently, just residents of the first, second and third ward of Mentor will vote in this race.
