Rep. Ashford Visits with Bowling Green State University Class

State Rep. Michael Ashford (D-Toledo) last month visited a Bowling Green State University (BGSU) class of future teachers who are learning about consumer financial decision-making. He discussed his recently passed payday lending reform legislation, House Bill (HB) 123 and how it will impact millions of Ohioans across the state who utilize short-term loans.


“I really enjoyed engaging with these future educators about the importance of consumer protections in the payday lending industry and showing them a model that makes the topic more real when they are teaching it to their future students,” said Ashford. “I hope that this conversation emphasized how critical it is that working families have access to short term loans in a way that is fair to them and how anyone could find themselves in a situation where they needed a loan to make ends meet, making it all the more crucial to have protections.”


Rep. Ashford announces new Faurecia Interior Systems facility in Toledo

COLUMBUS—State Rep. Michael Ashford (D-Toledo) today announced a plan for Faurecia Interior Systems Saline, LLC to build a new facility in Toledo. The facility, expected to open in April 2019 pending final approval, would create 101 full-time positions, generating $4.3 million in new annual payroll.

“This is great news for the 44th district,” said Ashford. “I’m so glad to see the growth of our economy in Toledo with the creation of 101 full-time positions. I support this project and others like it that will bolster our economy and provide more opportunities for our communities.”

Faurecia Interior Systems manufacturers automotive parts. The Ohio Tax Credit Authority (TCA) approved a 1.229 percent, seven-year Job Creation Tax Credit for this project.
