A Mission First Approach

A focus on building broad coalitions to effectively address Ohio's challenges. A rejection of divisive politics and political theater. Placing the interests of our neighbors over personal, political & donor interests 100% of the time.
 

The Challenge:

Many of Ohio’s public schools are not equipped to provide our next generation with the skills necessary to succeed and drive Ohio’s economy forward¹. Difficult political decisions have prevented our government from addressing decades of under-performance. Ohio’s children and economy suffer as a result². To build economic success tomorrow, we need to strengthen the foundation of our economy today – public education.

We will:

  • Assemble a coalition of educators, academics,  citizens, and businesses to re-imagine the future of public education in Ohio
  • Select the most promising and cost-effective options
  • Work with a Republican partner to draft legislation
  • Begin the hard work necessary to drive meaningful change

The Challenge:

Ohio’s opioid epidemic is getting worse¹. It costs the State approximately $8.8 Billion per year – more than the state spends on public education annually². Our labor force, tax revenue, and economy are under-performing as a result³. We have a moral obligation to help lift our struggling neighbors. Ohio needs leadership to reject politics and focus on fighting back.

We Will:

  • Build a coalition across government, medicine, academia, law enforcement, and business to review successful programs around the country
  • Select the most promising and cost-effective solutions
  • Work with a  Republican partner to draft legislation
  • Begin the hard work required to heal our neighbors and economy

The Challenge:

Ohio’s loose campaign finance laws¹ encourage elected officials to place the interests of donors and special interests over the interests of the voters. The powerful prosper at the expense of our citizens, economy and democracy.

We will:

  • Reduce the individual contribution limit in Ohio from $12,707 to match the federal limit of $2,700²
  • Lead the fight to limit the influence of anonymous special interest expenditures³ in the state
