In Pomeroy, Portman Continues His Three-Day Tour Across Southern & Southeast Ohio to Honor Ohio Legend Tippy Dye

Three-Day Tour to Span 12 Counties, More Than 750 Miles Highlighting Workforce Development, Tax Reform, Energy Production, Agriculture, and How Ohio Small Businesses are Helping Secure Our Borders 

POMEROY, OH – Yesterday, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) continued his three-day tour across Southern and Southeast Ohio in Pomeroy by participating in the Bicentennial placement of a historical marker honoring Tippy Dye, the legendary college coach and athletic administrator born in Harrisonville, Ohio who was the head basketball coach at The Ohio State University from 1947-1950. This historical marker is one of 12 that will be placed around the county honoring historical figures from Meigs County. 

“I was honored to participate in the placement of a historical marker honoring Tippy Dye,” said Portman. “Tippy rightly deserves this recognition for his legacy along with the 11 others who will be honored throughout Meigs County this year.” 

Traveling more than 750 miles over three days in Southern and Southeast Ohio, Portman will participate in workforce development roundtables touting his JOBS Act, see an oil production facility, tour several Ohio small businesses which manufacture technology being used to help secure our southern border, and participate in agricultural tours.
