Election March 2016: Robert Allen

Party Affiliation: Republican
Office Desired: State Senate
Facebook: Rob Allen for Ohio 32nd State Senate

Why should you be elected
Career politicians such as Sean O’Brien and Randy Law run on their records. Unfortunately neither has a record of accomplishing anything in Columbus. Kristen Rock like myself is a virtual unknown, however she will be in the minority party in Columbus and as a freshman Senator will be able to accomplish very little.
As the Representative for the 32nd district and a member of the majority party I will be able to accomplish far more than any of the other candidates.

Top three priorities
1) Ashtabula and Trumbull counties suffer from a lack of reliable infrastructure to support the expansion of local business or to attract new business to the area. While other campaigning are touting their record of economic growth, they have overlooked the basic necessities to make business successful in our region. This is a definitive need among small and large business in our region and is the first thing I want to address.

2) Providing a labor ready workforce to continue to attract new business is also a priority. We need to have a good relationship between our education system and local manufacturers and industry so the younger generations want to stay here in our region because they see opportunities for growth, family and prosperity.

3) The number of drug related deaths from heroin in Northeast Ohio is a major problem for our communities. working with law enforcement to find new and innovative ways to help rehabilitate addicts and prosecute dealers is a key component to building stronger communities.
