DEAR EDITOR:

The season of giving brings friends and families together for quality time, gift-giving and merry celebration. For those waiting, they’re hoping for a shining gift that won’t be wrapped under the tree or in a pretty box – they’re waiting for a second chance at life.

Our nation faces many challenges, and the important work we do here in Washington on issues like job creation, the economy, the budget, healthcare reform, and foreign policy are followed closely by the press. But my job, serving the people of Ohio, is much bigger than what you see in the papers or on 24-hour cable news channels. Every day, my congressional office is working to help constituents solve problems or overcome government obstacles on issues that may not make headlines, but have a huge impact on their lives.

This is a reprise of one of my favorite columns.

As we visit with relatives and long-lost friends at this holiday season. “Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Year” will be said a zillion times.

It will become so natural it will roll off our tongues without so much as a thought.

We are a nation of builders and innovators. Harnessing that creative energy, manufacturing created a middle class that strengthened our communities and provided opportunity for countless Americans. Manufacturing helped make the middle class. In fact, manufacturing jobs have a larger multiplier effect than any other industry. For every $1.00 spent in manufacturing, another $1.48 is added to the economy.

Across Ohio, I meet with manufacturers who understand the opportunities that are being created in Ohio’s clean energy economy. Ohio has the fifth-highest number of clean energy jobs in the nation, with more than 29,000 of them in manufacturing.
