|Ohio House of Representatives District 16|
Meyer's professional experience includes working as an attorney.
The following campaign themes were highlighted on Meyer's campaign website:
- Excerpt:"Our regional economy needs a new dynamism, new focus, and innovative ideas necessary to retake our place as an economic leader and powerhouse. We have a powerful foothold in the two tremendous growth areas of biomedical research and technology and green jobs. I believe our legislature should provide incentives to cultivate these strengths for the benefit of our larger economy, and help make us the “Silicon Valley” of these fields. We need to focus on the real issue of job creation, not the smoke screen of blaming our teachers and safety forces for our economic problems."
- Excerpt:"As a former substitute public school teacher, I know a child’s education is a long term investment in our future. Our community can’t afford the reckless and extreme cuts to education funding forced on our schools by the current administration. With your help, I will make sure parents, students and educators have the resources they need to prepare our young people for the future. In addition, I support the right of teachers to negotiate in good faith for the supplies, smaller class sizes, and benefits necessary to ensure schools in our District continue to attract the talented professionals we expect in our children’s classrooms."
- Excerpt:"It’s time for our state government to realize that a healthy environment means a healthy Ohio. The current administration has sacrificed our long term future for short term gain all too often. For example, permitting the dangerous method of drilling known as “fracking” in our state parks today will permanently damage one of our most precious resources to the detriment of generations to come. And, green jobs are a true growth area of the international economy in which we have already have an advantage. We can’t afford to ignore the opportunity."
