METRO DIGEST || Ginter on State Fatherhood Commission - Vindicator

State Rep. Tim Ginter of Salem, R-5th, has been appointed to the Ohio Commission on Fatherhood, which has the goals of giving opportunities for fathers to become better parents and providers, thus improving the health and well-being of children.

The commission works to improve economic stability, foster responsible parenting and provide healthy relationships for fathers.

“In a day when families are facing incredible stress, the importance of the role of a father in a family cannot be overemphasized,” Ginter said.
