Having been a resident of Clermont County for most of my life, it was truly an honor to be chosen by the people to serve as their voice in state government. I know it will be a challenging experience, but I can’t wait to get started and to hear from the people of the district.
I’ve been interested in issues and have been involved in politics for decades. That is why I have paid close attention to the state Legislature and recognize the state’s need for sound leadership and common sense.
To help others follow the happenings throughout the state, I have published my newsletter, “The Becker Report,” for nine years. It is also a great way for me to keep track of all things public policy-related that occur in Ohio.
Our state has experienced some difficult times during the recession—as has most of the country—but under the leadership of Governor Kasich and the Legislature, our state is rebounding. It is my sincere intention to work with members of both parties to continue moving Ohio down a path of economic growth and job creation. Everything hinges on a strong economy, and without it, it is hard to accomplish anything else.
The people of Clermont County have meant a lot to me. It is truly a great place to raise a family, and I know my wife and daughter feel the same way. Frankly, there is no place I would rather live. I want to invite all of you to contact my office to share your ideas, concerns and questions. Your involvement will help me better serve your needs from Columbus.
I want to thank you for entrusting me with this responsibility.
John Becker is the state representative serving the 65th District.
