Ohio is a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family. Our state has a diverse and energetic workforce, terrific higher learning institutions, and great natural beauty. However, these strengths are not enough to stem the flow of jobs from Ohio. I have been blessed to raise my family here and I also want my seven grandchildren to have a future here. . . but that future depends on jobs! As a trustee in Geauga County's largest township, I have a record of cutting spending and pushing for lower taxes and I will do the same in Columbus.
