Through these contacts and suggestions from individual citizens, state representatives gauge public opinion and develop proposals for changes in the state law. These proposals are prepared in the form of a bill and are then formally considered by the House of Representatives, the Senate and the Governor before becoming law.Base Salary: $60,584Term: 2 Years

Mail in voting has been successful in several states. That option should remain available and a combination of early vote and in-person voting of election day kept as options.This assumes voting machines available so that no one waits more than 10 minutes to vote..
Passionate about our fresh water supply here in Northwest Ohio. Cities of Toledo and Oregon have invested millions of dollars in waste water treatment plants. Rate payers throughout the region pay to keep within the U.S EPA regulations under the Federal Clean Water Act. Agriculture runoff from a very limited number of farm operations upriver carries excessive nutrients into Lake Erie resulting in algae blooms and possible poison micro-systems. We have mostly eliminated coal burning power by using natural gas burning power. An improved air quality has resulted, but this fossil fuel has air emissions as well. Nuclear power has provided safe reliable (carbon free) electric power for the region for decades.Spent nuclear material like radioactive waste from fracking operations are the challenges of both industries. Both industries are needed until we can provide energy sources like wind and solar, both of which are now unable to meet electric demands of northern Ohio. I fight for you.
Women should have control of their own bodies and have the final say about their own reproductive rights. Legislation which tries to limit their access to safe abortions (even pregnancies resulting from rape or incest) is wrong. Access to good healthcare and family planning services should be a basic right in our society. Women's reproductive rights are a result of the evolution of women being seen as equal citizens under the law. Even in western democracies, women were once considered the property of their fathers and then their husbands after marriage, In many cultures this evil still exists today. I support women as equal members of society.
Unaware of anything more that can be done, and I invite any ideas that would provide better safeguards.
