Congratulations to the Class of 2018! I wish you the best of luck in your future, wherever it may take you!
Today, students access our country are “walking out” over gun control and their safety in schools. I completely understand why they are doing that and I support it.
I say thank you, to the students that do walkout because you are sending a message to your local community, government, and school board that you want change. Just walking out however, will not solve the issue however. It requires action not just talk. The problem here isn’t the guns, it’s the criminals that kill innocent people and the school’s lack of security, nationwide.
To the schools that are not allowing their students to walk out; you are infringing on their Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Protest, and Freedom to Assemble and you should be ashamed of that.
Mrs. Bush was truly a wonderful woman and loved by many. She loved her family and has always loved her faith and I believe she is in a better place now with no sickness and no pain.
Her contributions to this country have made us stronger. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Bush family during this hard time. She will be truly missed.
Last night, in coordination with our allies, the United States joined France and the United Kingdom in taking action against the Syrian regime. The regime’s brutality against innocent civilians will not be allowed. Let us all pray for and keep in our thoughts, the men and women of the armed forces.
Well done to the military’s of the United States, the United Kingdom, and France! It was a plan executed well! 🇺🇸🇬🇧🇫🇷
Although he isn’t running for re-election, we’re not done yet. There’s still a lot of work to do.
I want to thank Paul Ryan for his service to the United States! Enjoy you’re retirement next year Mr. Speaker! You’ve earned it! God Bless!
Thanks to Paul’s leadership, he has accomplished so much for the American people, including but not limited to, a new tax code that works for all citizens.
To all Ohio voters, make sure to register to vote in the May Primary (May 8th, 2018) by the deadline (April 9th, 2018).

I appreciate everyone who is peacefully exercising their First Amendment right and Marching for their Lives. While I don’t agree with everything they propose, I respect their decision to protest the gun violence and demand change, though most Americans don’t agree with a gun ban. Everyone wants to prevent mass shootings, but banning guns, ultimately will not prevent these violent attacks. Gun owners are responsible with guns, using them for hunting and self-defense. It’s criminals who want to harm other individuals that cause these attacks. They’re going to do what they want to do whether guns are legal or not. They’re criminals, they don’t care about laws, clearly.
While protests are a great way of making a point, making a change requires action not just talk. It also requires finding common ground with those of the opposite views.
I am so proud to be a Marietta Tiger! Students from Marietta High School went downtown today to help our local businesses move out for the upcoming flooding we are going to have. These are times I’m proud to be a Tiger and these are reasons that I call Marietta home.
