h2h-dedicatedAs an attentive listener
and effective communicator,
I’ve been successful in
making things happen.


Through Bipartisan Collaboration, we WILL do better as a state government in making the lives of all Ohioans better. Elected officials must focus on what matters to citizens, putting people above party and politics.

I strongly believe that state legislators must really listen to each other and earnestly foster dialogue. Only if this happens will we truly serve the people we represent.

Socially Responsible Fiscal Practices involve spending taxpayer dollars to best support quality of life for community members. There are sufficient funds, if spent wisely, to provide meaningful programs and services while maintaining a balanced budget. Strategic thinking and strong leadership are key!


I am uniquely qualified to facilitate
change with proven ability to make
significant progress in extremely
challenging situations. My optimism,
rationality and authenticity will
make a positive difference!
