We focus on three key areas. First, we firmly believe that the future of Ohio depends on increasing economic freedom and competitiveness in all parts of our economy. We believe government must provide a fair and level-playing field where everyone is equal before the law, not doling out special favors to insiders, subsidizing those with the best lobbyists, or protecting certain industries from competition and innovation.
Next, an economy geared to the promotion of job creation and entrepreneurship is the only way to ensure that those looking to start or grow a business and those seeking quality work can blossom. We must ensure that government policies spur business and attract the best and brightest by giving a voice to those who create jobs and free Ohio’s risk-takers from government actions that impede growth.
Finally, the cost and burden of government cannot continue to make Ohio among the worst states economically, so we must institute strong government reform and accountability measures. Elected officials and the people who run our state and local governments must be accountable for providing transparent, honest, and open government that works. Taxes and regulations – and the size of government – must be kept in check. We always will defend the small business owner and the individual over the bureaucrats and their unions.
