Do Ohio’s Home Towns Have a Future?

The challenges of economic transition and growing inequality have hit Ohio's small cities especially hard. Best-selling books such as "Dreamland," "Hillbilly Elegy" and "Our Kids" paint a picture of Ohio's hometowns gripped in opioid abuse, closed factories and a culture that is having a hard time adapting to a changing world. Please join us as we discuss the issues and challenges of Ohio's small cities with:

Moderator: Larry Long, former executive director of the County Commissioners Association of Ohio and lecturer at the John Glenn College of Public Affairs

Jackie Walker, assistant city manager, Delaware Ohio

David Smith, mayor, Lancaster Ohio

John Begala, author of "Big City Problems in Ohio’s Small Towns"

For those of you unable to attend, this event will be streamed via Facebook Live on the Glenn College Facebook page. The room will be equipped with a camera and microphones so our online audience can listen and participate remotely.
