COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - More than 80 county commissioners and other local officials from around Ohio have participated in a White House meeting aimed at building stronger relationships between President Donald Trump and U.S. communities.

A White House spokesman says the meeting Tuesday featured policy discussions with White House staff members as well as presentations from various federal agencies.

The event was part of a series of meetings the Trump administration has sponsored in order to strengthen its local connections and to build stronger relationships.

Participants came from more than half of Ohio’s 88 counties. They included 27 chairs of county commissions.
