David J. Donofrio was a 2012 Democratic candidate for District 21 of the Ohio House of Representatives.


Campaign themes

The following campaign themes are highlighted on Donofrio's campaign website:

A Job Creation and Investment Budget

  • Excerpt:"David has promised to devote "every waking moment" of his time in office to research and build a plan for job creation and capital investment in Ohio. The biggest opportunity to do this is by changing-gears in crafting the biennial budget, asking as all government departments and projects are under review, "how does this help to create jobs and opportunities for Ohioans?""

Making Education Fair and Equitable

  • Excerpt:"David would begin from Dyer's education blueprint to once again shift the majority of the funding burden to the state, so that districts can all receive funding based on needs and numbers of students, regardless of how much their citizens can afford in taxes, or whether a levy can get passed. David understands that Dublin and Worthington are world-class districts, and as a product of the Dublin Schools, will not rest until we guarantee all Ohio students, whether in public schools or even charters, a fair and equitable education."

Incentivizing Ohio-Based Energy

  • Excerpt:"Amid rising energy prices and increased scarcity of traditional sources, David believes we should incentivize use of all forward-thinking sources of energy, and not allow ourselves to step backward into a coal-based future. Solar, wind, and true biomass technologies need to be put to work, much as former Gov. Strickland's zones of opportunity plan stated."

Encouraging and Honoring Service

  • Excerpt:"David will lead an effort to ensure that all veterans are rewarded for their selfless service to our country, whether just returning home, or honoring them by simply allowing less strict standards to display the flag and word "veteran" on their license plate, as in legislation he helped to write when working for the House in 2010 (see HB 604)."
