To create a moonshot for Ohio workers. We have a generational opportunity as the new Silicon Heartland with investments from Intel and other tech and defense companies. Ohio needs a fighter in Washington to get legislation passed that will support this new growth and invest in the best interests of workers and their families to build a life here in Ohio.
Renew the culture of invention that made our area known around the world.
Rebuilding a culture of entrepreneurship that made Dayton, Springfield and Ohio internationally renowned for invention. A culture of entrepreneurship demands health care for everyone so dreamers and builders are not reliant on employer based care and reluctant to leave a job to begin their new venture. Investments in infrastructure, child care, broadband internet access for everyone, a simpler and equitable tax code, and federal instruments like loans and grants to invest in business growth are all areas that will strengthen a culture for entrepreneurs in America to succeed.

VOTING RIGHTS and ELECTION INTEGRITY
PRIMARY ELECTION REFORM
MULTIPLY NOT DIVIDE
PEOPLE OVER PARTY
Both political parties and much of the media benefit from our division and fear. Work to elect reasonable people of goodwill, so that neither party is held hostage by its extremes and our local, state, and federal governments can focus on finding durable, proven, and bipartisan solutions.
STAND FOR TRUTH
No one is entitled to their own facts – regardless of party. None of us should be afraid of data, and intelligence. A good idea should be judged on its reasonableness and rationality -- not which party promotes it or how loudly it is shouted.
BUILD COMMON GROUND
Collaboration and compromise are as important in government as they are in our friendships and families. The primary goal is finding solutions rather than winning elections.
