Our state government should work for everyone, not just the powerful and connected. Phil is running for state representative in Ohio House District 6 to bring fresh leadership to Columbus, end the culture of corruption in our state government, and put families and communities first. As a senior executive in non-profit education and the father of two children, he knows what it’s like to balance work and family, and has the management experience to help fix our state’s greatest issues. He will fight to increase public school funding in Ohio, protect local budgets for vital services, make it easier to start and grow your small business, and tackle all issues facing our state.
We need to invest in public education by finding common ground to finally fix Ohio’s unconstitutional school funding model, making state college more affordable, and lessening the weight of local levies.

Jobs & the Economy
Supporting local and small businesses is best done by incentivizing job creation, investing in our workforce, and creating more opportunity so our kids are not forced to leave Ohio for their pathway to the middle-class.

State funding needs to be restored to local governments so we can hire police and firefighters, maintain our roads and infrastructure, and improve community services to position our cities for the future.

Ethics & Lobbying Reform
To end the culture of corruption in Columbus, we have to advance reforms that fight pay-to-play dealing and conflicts of interest. Our government should work for everyone, not just the powerful and connected. We must work to end the revolving-door of career politicians and lobbyists beholden to special interests.

Labor & Workers’ Rights
We must protect the right to form a union and advocate for fair working conditions and compensation for all Ohioans, it is one of the prime ways we’ll end wage stagnation and directly help Main Street Ohio.

51% of Ohio’s population are competing on an unlevel playing field. Women in our state and across the nation face institutionalized pay gaps and pay discrimination, higher health care costs, and lost work and wages due to lack of paid family leave and domestic and sexual abuse.

Fair Districts and Voting Rights
Fair districts mean fair elections, but for too long, politicians have picked their voters rather than the other way around. State leadership should make it easier for people to register to vote and then help them exercise that right. Voters have the right to be heard and their votes counted.
Learn more about how Phil will fight for fair districts and voting rights.
Common Sense Gun Reform
Gun violence is a uniquely American problem, and it’s time we return to a common sense approach to gun violence prevention that balances the rights of gun owners while protecting families from the pain and loss of gun violence.
