Kristina Daley Roegner (incumbent)

Political affiliation: Republican

What would you do to improve the economy in Ohio?

“To improve the economy in Ohio, we need more jobs created in the private sector. To accomplish this, government can help set the stage that is inviting to businesses. Once the business climate is inviting, the companies will want to come to Ohio. Government can directly affect the business climate through our public policy decisions such as: regulatory reform (get rid of rules and regulations that do not make sense), tax reform (a lower tax burden is certainly more inviting), labor (ensuring a trained and educated and independent work force), Bureau of Workers Compensation (one that is efficient and competitive) and more. Ohioans are wonderful, hardworking and dedicated people. I am confident that by working together, Ohio will lead the nation in economic recovery.”

What are the other major issues facing your district and how would you address them? 

“After the economy and jobs, the issues facing the district are as diverse as the people I represent. During my office hours, people come in to discuss everything from public schools (quality of education, funding, grading system), to the Turnpike which runs through Hudson, to Medicaid/PASSPORT systems, to the cost of college text books and the list goes on. I take each issue seriously and work my hardest to help answer any question or resolve any issue for my constituents.”
