Campaign themes


Mackin's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]


  • Excerpt: "Time and time again we see legislation from Columbus passed along party lines. I strongly believe in the ability of people to find solutions to solve problems rather than following an ideology that is unwilling to compromise. By working together and making fairness a priority we will find real solutions for all Ohioans."

Economy & Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Ohio’s recovery from the 2008 recession is falling behind the rest of the country. My goal is to promote an economy that encourages growth and opportunity for all Ohioans, not just for the wealthy. The past financial crisis revealed the importance of maintaining a strong manufacturing base in both Ohio and the nation. This base is necessary to promote economic strength and national security."


  • Excerpt: "Ohio needs to work with colleges and universities to reduce tuition. We can do this by expanding aid, reducing student loan interest rates, and increasing scholarships. For long-term success it is important to have a well-educated, well-trained workforce that fulfills the needs of employers and attracts future business development. Having affordable education is vital not only to our economy, but for Ohio's future."

Energy Policy

  • Excerpt: "Ohio is set to benefit from the ability to drill for oil and natural gas and the development of new sources of energy. These alternative sources are promoting profitable economic development and drawing businesses back to the region. The production of these sources of energy promotes national security by creating energy independence and the ability to offset market disruptions caused by wars, natural disasters, and market fluctuations and speculation."

Voting Rights

  • Excerpt: "Our Democracy depends on the voters’ participation and trust in the system. This requires fairness and accessibility to the ballot for all citizens. With busy workdays and family obligations, long lines on Election Day and limited voting times only discourage working people from voting. I will work to protect the right to vote by ensuring voters are given better accessibility through early voting and information about registering to vote."
