State Senator Peggy Lehner (R-Kettering) joined economic development leaders from across the Miami Valley yesterday for the Dayton Development Coalition's annual meeting highlighting the positive economic growth currently taking place in southwest Ohio.

The event featured a keynote address from Major General Thomas Masiello, commander of the Air Force Research Laboratory headquartered at Wright Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton.

"Collaboration between our regional economic assets has been key to rejuvenating our workforce and bringing jobs back to the area throughout the past several years,” said Lehner.

Following the keynote address, Lehner discussed the increasingly positive economic outlook for the region with Major General Masiello and outgoing University of Dayton President Dr. Daniel J. Curran who was awarded the prestigious Maureen Patterson Regional Leader Award.

"We will continue our commitment to pro-growth, pro-business legislation that properly equips our workforce and reduces the tax burden on Ohio businesses and families," said Lehner.
