Building the Education System Our Children Deserve

A 21st Century Economic Development Vision

He is not beholden to any special interest group and will listen to your concerns, issues, and real life experiences as he attempts to make Ohio’s healthcare system as common sense and practical as possible."

Agriculture and Northwest Ohio's Ecology
