Please explain in a total of 100 words or less, your top two or three priorities if elected. If they require additional funding for implementation, please explain how you would obtain this funding.

OH-11 is 15th poorest district of 435 Congressional districts.
Primary cause of massive poverty: adult illiteracy.
Establish reading centers in D-11 affected neighborhoods using HUD funds & other appropriate fed funds, tie reading centers directly to Ohio job training efforts, and to local/regional employers looking to hire. Local office will create timely databases of who needs reading programs, which agencies/organizations are providing job training, & which employers are hiring. Staff will be required to have ongoing communication with all 32 municipalities, and attend relevant local meetings regarding other poverty-based issues.

My federal office will focus on national security funding priorities.
