Ohio State Rep. Mike Loychik introduced legislation to rename a local park after former President Trump. Loychick introduced the legislation with the support of the Republican Party to “honor the commitment and dedication that our 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump bestowed upon the great people of Trumbull County.”
The Hill reports:
Under the bill, Ohio’s Mosquito Lake State Park will be renamed Donald J. Trump State Park, in an effort to celebrate the former president who led in the state in both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections. It would also allocate $300,000 towards changing the signs in the park, the bill noted.
I witnessed the unprecedented and astounding support that President Trump received from my constituents across the 63rd District and Mosquito Lake State Park,” Loychik said of his proposal in the statement.
He also noted that Trump received a record and number of votes in the state for any presidential candidate.
“This enthusiasm for our former president was also historic throughout the state of Ohio last November as he pushed for initiatives and policies that was very well-received with my constituency and the state,” he said, according to the Associated Press.
In both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections, Trump led Trumbull County with or 55% of the vote.
