Statement of Michael Stinziano on his candidacy for Columbus City Council

“I am dedicated to investing in our community by working to create more and better jobs, fund essential services to help promote neighborhood safety, and support our schools. Columbus is a great city and can become the best place in America to live, work, raise a family, and grow a business if we all work together to improve life in our community.

As State Representative, serving the residents and businesses of Columbus in the Ohio House, I have introduced and supported bills to move Ohio forward by championing legislation to create jobs, cut taxes for the middle-class, restore the Homestead exemption for senior citizens, and fight discrimination.

I am particularly proud that several pieces of legislation which I sponsored to create jobs, protect young athletes from sustaining concussions, reduce infant deaths, fight Ohio’s growing heroin epidemic, and prevent skin cancer, are now law in Ohio.

I've fought hard to find common sense solutions to the problems that face Ohioans today and I’m excited about the opportunity to continue to serve as a member of City Council whose members contribute a great deal to the success of our great city.

I respectfully ask Columbus voters to join me on this journey.”
