Sen. Frank LaRose discusses his work to promote greater civility at the 2014 Glenn School Leadership Forum.

On Friday, October 17, 2014, State Senator Frank LaRose (R–Copley) addressed the 2014 Glenn School Leadership Forum at The Ohio State University.  Along with former State Representative Ted Celeste, Sen. LaRose shared his vision for promoting civility in public discourse.  Among the participants was a wide cross-section of academic and public-policy leaders.  Retired United States Senator John Glenn was in attendance and shared his personal reflections on the need for civility in government.
"We uphold the high ideals of public service and deliberative democracy when we conduct the people’s business with civility and collegiality.  Perhaps more important than this is the simple truth that only through civil dialogue can we solve the complex problems facing our state and nation.  We can’t view compromise as caving and civility as weakness.  These are essential tools for better governing." said Sen. LaRose.
