4th Annual Ward 3 Picnic in the Park is TODAY

Back by popular demand. I will host my 4th Annual Ward 3 Picnic in the Park is TODAY August 31st from 1-3pm at Memorial Park Pavilion #2 located at 14600 State Rd in North Royalton. In the case of rain the event will be held inside the community room at city hall. No RSVP is needed.

Each year I select a local charity or cause for my event to support. This year those who attend are encouraged to make a donation at the event to help support 22 year old Ward 3 resident Joe Keider, who was tragically injured after being hit by an alleged drunk driver in April while riding his motorcycle. In addition I am working with the Keider Family to help raise awareness about motorcycle and motor vehicle safety in hopes to save lives in the community.

Joe Keider Update
As you know Today’s Annual Ward 3 Picnic in the Park Charity it is supporting this year is Ward 3 resident Joe Keider’s Medical Recovery Fund. Many of you might not be aware that Joe was hoping to be there today given the progress he was making being home. However, on Thursday of this week he suddenly had stroke was flown this from UH Parma by helicopter back to Metro Health Hospital. Joe while at Metro suffered another stroke and blood clots including in his brain. They lifeflighted him but to the Cleveland Clinic. He needed to have a blood clot filter installed. And put on a blood thinner to break up any remaining clots. Yesterday morning he had surgery  at 2:30am. The filter is now in place. This filter is preventative. It is in place to stop clots traveling from his legs to his lungs. Then after that the doctors needed to decide when they can start using blood thinner medications to break up the clots in his lung. They want to wait as long as possible due to his stroke condition. If they start too soon there is a great risk he can start to bleed in his brain. But if they wait too long there is a great risk another clot can travel to his brain and cause another stroke. Later in day yesterday they decided right now the course of action is to wait for the brain to heal before treating the blood clots in his lung. This could take up to 10 days. But its complicated. If the clots in his lung travel to his brain he can have another stroke. It the clots in his lung put stress on his heart he can have massive damage to his heart. His teams are closely monitoring his heart for any stress, as well as his vitals. In his current state if nothing else happens to Joe, the best possible scenario would be that his brain heals, they treat the clots in his lungs, and he is able to be discharged from ICU. He would then be back at Metro rehab on the stroke floor to regain his speech and mobility that has been compromised due to the stoke. He is in a real life threatening situation that is complicated due to both the stroke he had yesterday and the current blood clots in his lung. Many of you have asked about update you can follow a Facebook blog the family has to check in how he is doing by Clicking Here. Besides any support you can provide in donations today the picnic will help. If you can’t make it today you can donate online by Clicking Here for his GoFundMe. If your a person of faith like me please pray for this young man that he pulls through. Special thank you to Father Estok, St. Albert the Great Church, Journey Church, and all those other members of our faith based community praying for Joe! The family wants me to pass along they appreciate and their son truly needs all the prayers he can get. Many of you have asked me yesterday what specific needs beyond prayer does Joe Keider and his family need. They still in need of many things when he returns home, as his family has taken on the responsibility of Joe’s Rehabilitation the party that injured Joe is not taking the responsibility they should for what they have done. A vehicle is top on the list, wheel chair accessible as he will have many ongoing follow up visits, estimated $60,000.00 a shower chair on wheels, $3500.00 a tilt table ,used to allow joe to stand and be weight bearing yet supportive, $2500.00, ultrasound machine $7500.00 for ongoing blood clot detection. Many miscellaneous medical supplies. If you or a business you work for or own have additional resources please contact me directly at ward3@northroyalton.org or call me at 440-785-4240 and I can get you in touch with the family. I am really trying to help this family and also exploring ways to prevent other families from being put through this. Thank you everyone for all the prayers and once again reminding me what a great place Ward 3 and North Royalton is! #JoJoStrong

June 17, 2019 North Royalton Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw Substitute House Bill 166 Testimony before Ohio Senate Finance Committee

Chairman Dolan, Vice Chair Burke, Ranking Member Sykes, and committee members. My name is Dan Langshaw and I am the Ward 3 Councilman on the North Royalton City Council. Thank you for the opportunity once again testify on Substitute House Bill 166 the State Operating Budget this time in the Senate.

The residents I serve and all Ohioans wonder why there are so many communities having to put more levies, bond issues, and other ballot measures these days? Why are our highways, roads, bridges, and infrastructure falling apart in our state? The answer is local governments historically have not been getting the funding they desperately need to address these issues in our communities.

May 14, 2019 Public Comments on Ordinance 2019-0005 before Cuyahoga County Council

Good evening members of the Cuyahoga County Council. My name is Dan Langshaw and I am the Ward 3 Councilman on the North Royalton City Council. Thank you for the opportunity provide comments regarding proposed Ordinance 2019-0005 the county disposable bag ban on behalf of my residents.

The sponsors of this legislation mean well. However, my residents have three key points they would like for you to take into consideration before you vote on this ban tonight. First, the timing of this legislation seems to be a smoke screen to avoid dealing with serious issues of alleged county corruption that is being investigated by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. The perception is a concern as well as the need for increased oversight in county government.

Second, the priorities of this council is a concern. If you ask my residents their top priorities are seeing additional county assistance for residents dying of the opioid epidemic, battling poverty, and addressing urgent infrastructure needs. For example I have an intersection of York Road (a county road) and Albion Road in my ward that desperately could use Issue One funding for a traffic study to help in making it safer and less congested. However, we must battle against cities like Cleveland for years to come even close to scoring for such funds. The environment is a concern but council needs to focus on other urgent priories as well county-wide.

Third, this bag ban seems to be pushed down our throats. Why isn’t this on the ballot for a vote? No one from the county has even reached out to local elected officials like myself in the other 58 municipalities to see how we could work more collaboratively together towards addressing this issue regionally. As well as exploring ways to expand existing education, environmental, and sustainability programs in our communities.

In closing, I agree with my residents that County Council should put this issue on the ballot for November. Give ALL residents whether they live on the east or west of this county a chance to collaboratively have their voices heard regarding this issue. A more collaborative approach such as this gives more time to educate residents, advocate to state lawmakers, and work with local elected officials toward a common goal of protecting our environment.

Thank you for the opportunity to speak to you.

May 6, 2019 North Royalton Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw & Ward 4 Councilman Paul Marnecheck House Bill 166 Joint Testimony before Ohio House Finance Committee

Chairman Oelslager, Vice Chair Scherer, Ranking Member Cera, and committee members. My name is Dan Langshaw and I am the Ward 3 Councilman on the North Royalton City Council. I am also accompanied by my colleague North Royalton Ward 4 Councilman Paul Marnecheck. Thank you for the opportunity for us both to testify on House Bill 166 the State Operating Budget.

The residents we both serve and all Ohioans wonder why there are so many communities having to put more levies, bond issues, and other ballot measures these days? Why are our highways, roads, bridges, and infrastructure falling apart in our state? The answer is looking you in the mirror. It is the leadership in Columbus for almost a decade that has caused this mess. Local governments historically have not been getting the funding they desperately need to address these issues in our communities.
