Wes Goodman Files Petitions for the Republican Nomination for the Ohio House of Representatives in the 87th District
CARDINGTON, OH – Earlier today, Wes Goodman filed his petitions at the Crawford County Board of Elections, officially becoming a candidate in the March 15 Republican primary for the Ohio House of Representatives in the 87th District, encompassing Crawford, Marion, Morrow, Seneca, and Wyandot Counties. The seat is currently held by State Representative Jeff McClain (R-Upper Sandusky) who is in his final term under Ohio term limits law. The district heavily favors Republicans.
For the last six months, I have had the incredible honor to spend time visiting all five counties in the 87th district, and have met some amazing people,” said Goodman. “I’m proud of the effort we have been able to put together. I have knocked on nearly 3,500 doors, attended dozens of events, festivals, and fairs, visited businesses and churches across the district, and earned the support and endorsements of key elected officials and community leaders. We are in great shape to win this election in just ninety days.”
Goodman has been a vocal conservative on the campaign trail, focusing on policies that enhance the economic competitiveness of Ohio and improve the lives of families and taxpayers. He often reminds voters of the importance of electing conservatives who are willing to stand for a principled position and against the career politicians and special interests who too often favor the few at the expense of opportunity for all.
“Every day, I talk with people who love our country, but are tired of watching career politicians fail to fight for the principles in office they say they believe in on the campaign trail,” said Goodman. “Too often, they are frustrated by policies that seem to benefit the politically favored or well connected, at the expense of families and taxpayers in our part of the state. But beneath the frustration there is a patriotic optimism that America will get it right. That we will reconnect with our founding principles and virtue in a way that will make the 21st century another American century. That we can make our part of Ohio the best place to live, work, raise a family, start a business, and live the American Dream. With the right policies, the right principles, and with new leadership, we will get the job done.”
