Baldridge appointed to environmental education council

COLUMBUS — Speaker of the Ohio House Larry Householder, R-72, recently appointed State Rep. Brian Baldridge (R-90) to the Environmental Education Council.

The EECO is a leader in the promotion and facilitation of Environmental Education and the nurturing of knowledge, attitudes and behaviors. Through EECO, individuals and groups are not only educated, but also develop partnerships with other individuals and organizations. These partnerships strengthen environmental education in Ohio, leading to a more environmentally literate population and a healthier environment.

“It is an honor that Speaker Householder chose me to be appointed to the Environmental Education Council,” Baldridge said. “I am excited to serve in this new role, and to work with the council to make sure that Ohio is a leader in the United States when it comes to having an environment that is clean for our children and future generations.”

Baldridge, a firefighter and former Adams County Commissioner, was elected to the legislature in 2018 after defeating Democratic candidate Adrienne Buckler, 61-39 percent to fill the seat vacated by  Terry Johnson.

His district covers portions of Lawrence County, as well as Adams and Scioto counties.
