Newly-elected Democrat, Mary Jo Kilroy (OH-15), will be joining John Boccieri (OH-16), for swearing in that will take place on January 6th. The Canton Repository has more on Boccieri:

John Boccieri expects Congress will be spending a lot of time in the coming months looking for ways to fix the national economy.....
.....Boccieri said 25 percent of Ohio’s economy hinges on the auto industry, which is just one reason it should be protected. There also is a national defense aspect because auto companies have, during wars in the past, converted production to defense weapons.

He’s anticipating the Obama administration’s economic stimulus plan, which has suggested increased spending on building projects around the country. The move should help by creating new jobs and repairing the nation’s infrastructure, he said.....

We wish our best to Kilroy, Boccieri and all the newly-elected members of Congress. We are counting on them to get things done.

>>> On January 7th, Jon Husted will have to appear in front of the Montgomery County Board of Elections to prove his residency as Kettering, even though he lives in Upper Arlington with his wife and kids (Dayton Daily News). According to a search I did at the Upper Arlington Mayor's Court, one ticket Husted received in 2005 listed his address as Manor Lane in zip code 43221. Do a search yourself at the Mayor's Court website and check out the View Docket information at the bottom of the ticket info page. According to a search I did at the Franklin County Auditor's website, the Husted home in Upper Arlington is listed in his wife's name.
