Ironton Tribune Editorial Board Praises Sherrod as “Productive and Effective,” Including Recent Passage of Bipartisan FEND Off Fentanyl Act

COLUMBUS, OH  – Over the weekend, The Ironton Tribune editorial board praised Sherrod’s “effective and productive” track record fighting for Ohioans and passage of his bipartisan FEND Off Fentanyl Act, which will protect Ohioans from dangerous fentanyl. The editorial board noted the FEND Off Fentanyl Act was “the latest of Brown working with members of both parties to pass laws that serve the greater good.”

The Tribune’s editorial board went on to note that Moreno “called the recent immigration package ‘357 pages of garbage,’ even though it included FEND Off Fentanyl Act,” which was endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police and law enforcement officers across Ohio. The editorial board writes that Sherrod’s bipartisan accomplishments offer a “clear choice” to Ohioans over Bernie Moreno, who “has no interest in working with the other side,” and noted the “best decision for Ohio could not be more clear.”

Ironton Tribune: EDITORIAL: A tale of two political approaches
Editorial Board – May 4, 2024

  • Just this month, Brown scored another legislative victory, with the president signing into law the FEND Off Fentanyl Act, which Brown introduced into the Senate last year, along with Republican Tim Scott, of South Carolina, and championed to passage.
  • The legislation is a sanctions and anti-money laundering law that is aimed at targeting the supply chain for fentanyl, a drug known all too well by Lawrence County and Ohio, due to countless overdose deaths.
  • This legislation was but the latest of Brown working with members of both parties to pass laws that serve the greater good — whether it is the PACT Act, aimed at helping veterans who suffer the effects of toxic burn pits, or the CHIPS and Science Act, which will help foster the economy of Ohio and the Intel plant and associated production coming to the state.
  • Throughout his career, there are endless examples of Brown being such (an) effective and productive legislator.
  • That’s more than what we can say for the indications his opponent in the Senate race this year, Republican businessman Bernie Moreno, has given for the type of politician he would be representing Ohio.
  • Moreno…has said he has no willingness in bipartisanship.
  • When questioned on working with the other side at a campaign stop, Moreno said he “rejected the premise” and flat out stated he has no interest in working with the other side, if elected.
  • How he intends to accomplish anything in office remains unclear, as he seems intent on just being a voice of nonstop negativity and hasn’t offered any workable solutions.
  • Moreno called the recent immigration package contained “357 pages of garbage,” even though it included FEND Off Fentanyl Act, so beneficial to Ohioans and championed by many in law enforcement.
  • So it appears there is a stark choice for Ohians this fall. They can continue to have a senator in Brown, who has many accomplishments under his belt and has shown, time and again, that he can get things done and create good governance….or there’s Moreno’s peacocking and lack of solutions, which will only add to partisan gridlock and the type of antics that we’ve seen all year in the speaker fights on the House side of things.
  • It seems the best decision for Ohio could not be more clear.
