Links are only provided where we have information. The first link is a report of all issues and questions made available to the candidates.
General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
My goals are to work on economic development utilizing the assets on my district, I also aim to promote education for our future leaders, and protecting our working class who have been attacked by the present administration with bills like SB 5. I also want to let people know the so called $3 billion in tax breaks favors those making above $250,000 who get around a $6,000 tax break where middle class workers get around $40. I want to reinstate the Homestead Act so the elderly can take advantage of the tax breaks when they turn 65 which now isn't possible. I also want to increase funding in education that was slashed by $2 billion dollars leading to larger class sizes and 60% of schools facing a budget shortage due to the cuts. I also want to increase funding to local governments that was slashed by 50% leading to 25,000 people losing their jobs that includes teachers, fire fighters, and police officers. Ohio has led the nation in job losses 5 of the last 20 months and was one of only 4 states who didn't see an increase in jobs in 2013. I also want to take out the language that makes Ohio the worst women friendly states in the nation. Helping military personnel to integrate back into society and providing training for those returning soldiers so they can have a job is also a priority.
