Two speakers shared their views during Monday's Richland County Republican Party luncheon.

Ohio Right to Life Director Mike Gonidakus told the gathering of the importance of medicaid expansion to provide medical care to 275,000 Ohioans.

He says the federal government offers to cover 100% of medicaid funding for three years and 90% after that, with the state picking up 10%. 

Dayspring Assisted Living Facility Director Bill Cunning spoke of the need for passage of a .4 mill renewal plus .4 mill new levy in May. 

He says the extra revenue would keep up with a growing number of residents, and the need for renovations to the nearly 80-year-old building. 

The Dayspring levy would generate $1.4-million in each of its five years, and cost the owner of a $100,000 house eight-cents a day.
