Residents of the 84th House District, Farewell
As the year and my term of office wind down, I want to take a minute to
thank you for the privilege of serving in the Ohio House of
Representatives for 24 years.
There is no better place in which to live than west-central Ohio. We
have the best families, schools, and places to work. A very high
percentage of our families have a strong belief in God and are active
in church. You can count on Mercer County having the lowest
unemployment rate in the state every month. Auglaize, Darke, and Shelby
are close behind. In the aggregate, the 20 schools in the 84th House
District are among the best in the state. We have the best
administrators and teachers and, coupled with our hard working
families, people stay here and rear the future generations. As long as
we hold these values high, we will always be successful.
Come January, we will be well represented in the Ohio House by Keith
Faber, who was just term limited as a member of and as President of the
Ohio Senate. The next two years are going to be very interesting in
state government. We are fortunate to have Keith and his abilities and
expertise working for us. Our new Senator, Matt Huffman, is going to
serve us so well. I had the privilege of working with him in House
Leadership when Matt was Speaker Pro Tempore. We will be in good hands
with Senator Matt Huffman.
I am so blessed that you allowed me to work for you in the Ohio House
of Representatives. To me, there is no higher calling than to be a
member of the People’s House. You sent me to Columbus to make Ohio’s
government better. I leave knowing that I contributed positively to
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
