Congressman Tim Ryan Applauds Judge Kontos's Ruling to Uphold TJX Zoning Vote
Youngstown, OH – Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) released the following statement in response to Judge Peter Kontos’s refusal to issue a permanent injunction blocking construction of a TJX Home Goods distribution center in the village of Lordstown.
“I applaud Judge Kontos for ruling to allow the TJX project to proceed. After many months of meetings, debates, campaigns, and litigation it is finally time to get construction underway. This new facility will be a huge victory for Lordstown and our entire community. So many people in this community have worked together to make sure this project became reality, and today, that effort has come yet another step closer to reality. This is what’s best for Northeast Ohio,” said Congressman Tim Ryan.
