Twenty people from across the Buckeye State were in the Pioneer City Friday to learn more about Ohio.

Leadership Ohio is a group of people that want to learn more about issues facing the state to try to come up with solutions.

The group visits eight different cities across the state each year.

This is the second year they have stopped in Marietta.

"Marietta is the beginning of it all. It's the beginning of Ohio, it's the beginning of the Northwest Territory. You don't understand Ohio unless you understand Marietta, so think that's why they've chosen to come to Marietta twice and I think that's why they'll continue to come," said Glenn Ray, Board Member, Leadership Ohio.

The group visited area colleges and businesses.

    Why did you interview Glenn Ray? Why didn't you interview someone from the leadership group? And showing them eating lunch in that small room at the Levee House doesn't tell you much about the leadership program.
