"We need more people in treatment beds and not jail cells." Senator Sherrod Brown on steps Ohio can take to combat the opioid crisis.
A native of Mansfield, Ohio, Senator Brown began his political career upon being elected as Ohio's Secretary of State in 1983. He then served in the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Ohio's 13th District.
Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006, Senator Brown serves on committees key to Ohio’s future: the Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Committee; he serves as Ranking Member on the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee; the Finance Committee; and the Veterans’ Affairs Committee.
