Lucas Co. Commissioners Skip White House Gathering

(Toledo, OH) Lucas County commissioners won't be among their Ohio colleagues at the White House. 

80 county commissioners from across the Buckeye State RSVP'ed to a presidential invitation to better local-federal government relations. 

But all three Democratic commissioners from Lucas County turned down the invite, saying today is their regular meeting day and the White House briefing is not a priority. The day in Washington will start with a greeting by presidential advisor Kellyann Conway and a briefing by the agriculture secretary. 

Various federal agencies also will give presentations as part of a series of meetings the Trump administration has sponsored in to strengthen its local connections and to build relationships. More than half of Ohio's counties will be represented at the gathering.
