COLUMBUS — State Sen. Lou Gentile announced earlier this week that Rutland native Steven Mahr will work as a page in his office.

Steven is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Mahr of Rutland, Ohio, and is a 2012 graduate of Meigs High School in Pomeroy. He is a sophomore in the Honors College at Ohio State University with a double major in economics and political science.

“I am very grateful to Sen. Gentile and his staff for the opportunity to serve the constituents of Appalachian Ohio,” Mahr said. “I am excited to learn more about state government under the exemplary leadership of Sen. Gentile.”

Mahr’s duties as a page will make him responsible for constituent letters and responding to emails, writing president’s letters and researching legislative issues. In addition, he will assist Gentile with his day to day schedule, and monitor local events in the media.

“We are pleased that Steven will be joining our team at the Statehouse,” Gentile said. “Steven has a genuine passion for public service and is dedicated to serving the people of his home county and all of the citizens of southeast Ohio. We are confident that Steven’s enthusiasm and commitment to service will benefit the constituents in Ohio’s 30th District.”
