Frank LaRose on Senate Bill 5
Republican senator cast key "yes" vote on SB5 to the surprise of many
by WKSU's KABIR BHATIA


Reporter
Kabir Bhatia
 
In The Region:

State Senator Frank LaRose was initially against Senate Bill 5.  But when the freshman Republican voted "yes" last Tuesday on legislation to curtail collective bargaining, he caught a firestorm of flak.  WKSU's Kabir Bhatia spoke with LaRose about the changes in the bill that led him to change his mind...

Six Republicans joined all 10 Democrats in voting against Senate Bill 5.  But the 17 remaining Republicans voted for the bill, pushing it through the state Senate and onto the largely conservative House.  Frank LaRose was one of those 17, despite coming out against the legislation in its original form.

LaRose says he – quote – “agonized” over the bill, but echoes the Governor in saying it will allow cities to deal with huge budget gaps by reducing costs.

Listener Comments:

Larose you are a coward. You lied to my face whem I met you in the Columbus statehouse by saying you would vote no on SB5. A bronze star? For a benedict arnold? You fight for our country only to turn your back on your fellow Ohioans. Do us a favor and get the hell out of our great state. BOYCOTT HOUSE OF LAROSE

Hmmm when he talked to the group of Teachers in Twinsberg he tried the same lies. He clearly demonstrated he was either naive or just a pawn for Kasich. Not, the type of man that should be a state senator. I will work to make sure his time in the state senate is a short one.

This is why people should not vote on candidates with out a proven track record. I have learned my lesson. I was duped but I will remember this in the next election or how about a recall?

I am a purple heart veteran from the Vietnam War.I am also a trade union member.Iconsider myself to be a right wing democrat but have supported both party candidates.One of the main reasons I voted for Larose was his marching with labor unions in Barberton on Labor day;and his military service.His use of labor unions to get elected and then stab them in the back to further his political carrier shows lack of character.Republiars have already done away with PLA and there next step is to make Ohio a right to work for less state.Kasich is a big part of the problem in this country;voting for NAFTA and then getting a bonus for losing pension funds on WallStreet.According to Frank he did a bang up job protecting workers rights.Get ready for your next screwing.I wonder what Labor Day parade Larose is marching in this year.

Frank.......your fellow Republican Senator Tim Grendell made you look like a fool on 1100 radio Saturday. You are in over your head!!! You better stick to driving the beer trucks at THE HOUSE OF LAROSE. Opps......arent they union drivers too? Geeze you voted to make the family more money as they can bust that union too!!!!

Congrats Frank Larose for voting in the interest of the taxpayers that put you in office. public workers enjoy benefits that are superior to the private sector taxpayers that fund their salaries and golden pensions. You should be commended for your vote and understand it was the right one.

Larose is a liar. How about planting your flag with police and fire. You and your family's distributorship will not be forgotten.
