It has certainly been a busy past couple of years in the Statehouse. From passing numerous jobs bills, to enacting policies to make government more accountable, our focus in the 129th General Assembly has been to reduce the government’s burden on taxpayers.

While Ohio has shown great progress over the past two years—currently we are the number one job creator in the Midwest—I understand that there is still much to be done. It is important that we look ahead, learn from our mistakes and build on our successes.

I ask that you continue to be a part of that process. As I and many other representatives have said, good public policy starts with the people. A good idea can come from anyone at any time, and it is critical that all avenues of communication are open to citizens throughout the state.

Therefore, I encourage anyone with ideas and concerns to contact my office, and I would be more than happy to sit down and meet with you. Whether it be at my Statehouse office in Columbus, or at my in-district monthly office hours, I invite you to come share your thoughts.

Ohio still faces many challenges. Our economy is not to the point that we want it to be, but I am confident that the last two years has laid the groundwork for continued success in the years ahead.

I have mentioned, on numerous occasions, that one of the most rewarding aspects of being a state representative is having the ability to learn from a wide range of people with all sorts of different backgrounds. This applies not only to the various state legislators I have the opportunity to work with, but especially with the people of the district—people who have called Clark County home for many years and who have raised their families here.

My responsibility is to serve you and to be your voice in Columbus, and I will continue to do that to the best of my ability. You can contact my office at any time at (614) 466-2038.
