I want a Healthy Future for Our Children’s Children and Future Generations in Ohio. In order to do that, we must have jobs for Ohioans. I plan to focus my efforts towards bringing jobs to this state.
We need access to education and training. Our state schools rank 5th in the nation in providing quality education to our children. We now need to work on providing access to higher education and skills training for those who want technical or warehouse jobs.
I don't buy the idea that someone should have to die because they don't have enough money... Now that a bill has passed, we need to refine the legislation. I will support state legislation that enhances the federal bill providing affordable access to healthcare.
My interest in politics is fed by my passion for working with people, and my sincere desire to get involved with helping to improve our communities.
One of the most effective ways to make change is to be where the laws are created that govern our well being.
I have a lot to offer to all Ohio communities, having gained a wealth of knowledge and experience throughout my 30 plus years of service in government.
I have worked with the legislative process, elected officials, programs, and policies
…and I understand how all of this can fit together for the benefit our community.
We all know that the economy is in bad shape, but we cannot let that get us down.
It’s time to move on.
As your candidate for the Ohio Senate - 3rd District, I promise to work with you to earn your trust, and to be an effective representative for the district.
