Campaign themes


Sherwin's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]


  • Excerpt: "We MUST make Ohio attractive to new businesses by lower taxes, eliminating unnecessary regulations, and repealing some of our laws that prevent free markets and competition."


  • Excerpt: "Our education system is upside-down. The responsibility for educating our children begins with the parents, then the local communities and school districts. Simply put, it is not the job of the federal and state governments to educate our children. If we, the taxpayers, were not giving a huge slice of our hard-earned money to support bureaucracies we would have more money in our paychecks to support our local schools."

Nullification and Sovereignty

  • Excerpt: "We should work to nullify all unconstitutional federal laws, forbid federal officials from enforcing these laws in Ohio, and to sequester those federal taxes that don’t fund constitutional purposes."

Note: Sherwin's campaign themes did not change from 2012.
