Press Statement – Tuesday, February 3, 2015
Ohio is moving in the right direction. As a member of the State Senate I want to contribute to Ohio’s growth. Having previously served in the legislature, I know my desire to return to elected office is fueled by my experience and understanding of how the private-public relationship drives a healthier and sustainable economy. I like working on issues that enhance the productivity, prosperity and opportunity for all Ohioans.
Under the leadership of Governor John Kasich and State Senator Tom Patton, Ohio has made great progress. Both will admit that work still remains to keep Ohio growing. I will maintain my efforts on tax reform, workforce development, job growth and retention. I will work relentlessly on streamlining government so obtaining permits, licenses and engaging in the workers compensation system is more efficient and effective.
I enjoy a reputation of someone who can work with both sides of the aisle without sacrificing my principles. I believe in a smaller government that promotes economic growth led by the private sector; protects and promotes Ohio’s natural resources; and supports individual freedoms and the sanctity of life.
I want to continue the protection, promotion, and preservation of our greatest natural resource, Lake Erie and ensure our education system prepares students for today and tomorrow’s economy.
As an active member of our community, I know the best representative is one who is most responsive to the people.
