[Columbus, OH] – The following statement can be attributed in full, or in part, to Council President Shannon G. Hardin:
“From my conversations with families impacted by gun violence, it is clear we need profound change to the way we ensure public safety in our community. Time and again, the key element is to lean into our neighborhoods and do more to prevent violence, especially among our youth.
