Growing our Economy
Our global, regional and local economies are changing, and we need to invest in our workforce to adapt. We should support high-growth industries like renewable energies, high-end manufacturing, information technology and healthcare. We have a tremendous opportunity here in the 37th District to invest in our future and provide good paying jobs for many years to come.
Ending the Burden on Local Taxpayers
With cuts to local government funding, the state has limited the ability of local governments to provide critical upgrades to infrastructure and emergency response technology. My hands are tied as a member of Hudson City Council and I need your support to help bring back these crucial funds to local governments in our area.
Educating our Children
Our state wasted $1 billion of taxpayer money on unaccountable charter schools and I find this to be unacceptable. We should restructure the way we fund public schools and invest in our children's future with strong universal pre-K. My daughter Nora and every child in the great state of Ohio deserves a solid educational foundation and the resources needed to be successful in this day and age.
Protecting our Environment
The 37th District is home to parts of Cuyahoga Valley National Park, a perfect example of Ohio’s natural beauty and one of our most visited National Parks. Preserving and enhancing our natural environment is good for us, for our children, and for our economy. As a member of the Leadership Hudson Class of 2014, I was proud to lead the private fundraising and implementation of a solar array at Barlow Community Center. We need to turn our attention towards renewable energy and responsible environmental policy so that projects like Barlow Community Center can become the norm in Northeast Ohio.
