Senator Hottinger is presented the PCSAO Gayle Channing Tenenbaum Legislator of the Year Award, presented by Mary Wachtel, legislative director for PCSAO.

COLUMBUS—State Senator Jay Hottinger (R-Newark) was named Legislator of the Year today in recognition of his continued support for the children served by Ohio's children services agencies during a special presentation at the Public Children Services Association of Ohio's annual conference.

"I'm truly humbled to receive an award named in honor of Gayle Channing Tenenbaum—a nationally recognized advocate for children’s issues and especially her leadership in Ohio as a voice for abused and neglected children," said Hottinger. "The agencies and the children that this organization serves are facing unprecedented challenges. These issues should be a top priority for all of us.”

Hottinger was honored for his work successfully championing a $15 million investment to address the growing pressure put on agencies to support children affected by the drug crisis. The budget also invests in recovery centers and child protective services, thanks to efforts led by Senator Hottinger, to assist in caring for children who have been abandoned by drug-addicted parents.

Public Children Services Association of Ohio is a membership-driven association of Ohio’s county Public Children Services Agencies that advocates for and promotes child protection program excellence and sound public policy for safe children, stable families, and supportive communities.
