Today, the Jim Renacci for Congress campaign began airing its first television ad for the fall campaign, highlighting Jim Renacci's record as a job creator and calling for an end to the reckless deficit spending and job-killing policies that are destroying Ohio's economy. A 27-year resident of northeast Ohio, Jim Renacci built a business from the ground up, creating over 1,500 new jobs and employing over 2,500 Ohioans. As Mayor of Wadsworth, Jim brought his business background to local government and successfully balanced his city's $80 million budget and converted its deficit into a surplus, without raising taxes.
"While John Boccieri remains in hiding, refusing to discuss the issues that matter to voters--like our double digit unemployment rate or his votes for the cap and trade energy tax, ObamaCare and the Obama-Pelosi stimulus plan, I am proud to campaign on my low-tax, low-spending, pro-growth principles that our state and our country so desperately need," Jim Renacci said today.
Since John Boccieri was elected to Congress, the unemployment rate in the 16th district has doubled while he cast votes in Washington for trillions of dollars in new taxes and deficit spending. Voting with Nancy Pelosi 94% of the time, John Boccieri has supported every major component of the Obama-Pelosi agenda, including cap & trade, ObamaCare and the economic "stimulus" plan.
