Sen. Caryn Tyson, from left, and Reps. Kenneth Collins and Kent Thompson speak Monday at a legislative update forum sponsored by Allen County Farm Bureau.

Area lawmakers have spent the first week of the new legislative session adjusting to a new governor and welcoming a large crop of freshmen.

Among the newcomers was Rep. Kenneth Collins, a Mulberry Republican who represents the 2nd District, which covers the eastern part of the county including Mildred, Moran, Elsmore and Savonburg. Collins bested incumbent Democrat Adam Lusker in November.

“I survived my first week,” Collins told a group of about 15 local residents who turned out for a legislative update Monday evening sponsored by Allen County Farm Bureau.
