Aurora - "It is time to take off our blue and red shirts and put on our red, white and blue," said Congressman David Joyce (R-Ohio 14) at a 3Chamber luncheon Aug. 21 at the Bertram Inn in Aurora.
Joyce's speech, sponsored by the Twinsburg, Aurora and Solon chambers of commerce, focused on the country's economy and the importance of providing citizens with jobs and lowering taxes.
"We cannot go on like this," said Joyce. "The numbers do not lie. There must be changes made in the system."
The approximately 200 attendees seemed pleased with what they heard. Joyce had to stop his speech several times to pause for encouraging applause.
"We need to bring jobs back to our area," said Joyce. "We need to do whatever is necessary to promote businesses in this area and that is by cutting taxes, lowering regulations and trying to create the climate in which businesses can prosper."
Joyce's main focus is on the environmental health of the Great Lakes.
"The lakes are a national treasure and so it is important to me that we continue doing whatever is necessary to preserve them," said Joyce.
According to Joyce, the Great Lakes produce 1.5 million jobs for U.S. citizens.
