My Values & Beliefs



Sara believes Ohio’s future depends on our children receiving the best education possible.  Local educators and parents ought to be included in and ultimately responsible for making choices for our children’s education, not bureaucrats. In order to compete and attract a healthy private sector workforce, We must continue to embrace technology to modernize our educational system. Sara will create positive partnerships with our local educators to ensure that our children are prepared for college and given access to proper vocational training. By accomplishing this, we will be able to alleviate some of the issues that are causing a skills gap in the 51st District.

Protecting the Right to Bear Arms

The Second Amendment is the guarantor of the entire Bill of Rights. As your next state representative, Sara will be an ardent defender of your right to bear arms and will not allow politicians to slowly chip away your Constitutional Rights

Defending the Right to Life

As a mother of two little ones, issues of Life are near and dear to Sara’s heart. She believes that Life begins at conception. She will bring our values of defending human life to the statehouse and fight for the most vulnerable every single day.

Creating a balanced workforce will create prosperity

Sara believes that it is absolutely crucial to develop a balanced workforce that will continue to create a sustainable environment that will attract new jobs for Ohio’s future. Sara understands how the government can create a friendly business environment for the private sector to create value for our communities through job creation and economic development.

Controlling the size of the government allows for growth

Sara believes that keeping the government from overspending keeps money local and also strengthens economic growth.
