Why should you be elected
Having spent the vast majority of my career creating jobs in the private sector, I understand firsthand how Washington’s policies impact Ohio families and businesses and also have the depth of experience to know what it will take to effectively change the way Washington works. I’m running to advance a common sense conservative, pro-growth agenda so that all Ohioans can benefit from a thriving American economy and to deliver badly needed solutions to our most pressing crises—from the opioid epidemic that’s ravaging our state to our nation’s long-term debt crisis.
My breadth of experience in both public service and the private sector, in which I created over 1,500 jobs and employed over 3,000 people across Ohio, has rendered me uniquely qualified to effectively serve our state in the United States Senate and to advance the values of hardworking Ohioans—not Washington special interests and career politicians.
Top Three Priorities
1) Sustaining Long-Term Economic Growth
2) Addressing Our Debt Crisis
3) Tackling the Opioid Epidemic
While we’ve seen tremendous progress and growth in our national economy over the past year, many Ohio families continue to struggle and our state has one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation. Advancing a pro-growth, common sense conservative agenda to foster further economic growth and decrease our nation’s debt will be a top priority of mine.
The health of our economy impacts more than just our wallets—it directly affects the sense of hope and opportunity that Ohioans, particularly young Ohioans, feel about their futures. When a feeling of hopelessness persists, as it does in many communities across our state, some young people turn to drugs, including opioids.
We need Ohioans to feel more confident and optimistic, and I believe this can be done by adding more and better paying jobs to our economy.
