Resolving Ohio's Fight Against Drug Addiction
As Sheriff of Montgomery County, I have seen first hand the devastating effects of drug addiction. Drug addiction does not only affect drug users, it often affects families and entire communities. We need to take action to protect our families and communities from this disease that has so violently spread. We need to make a stand and help individuals that require the means to end addictive behavior. It is our job to help our communities thrive. This cannot be achieved when families are being destroyed by destructive behaviors. It is up to each and every one of us to combat this crisis together. Families are helping loved ones fight through addiction. Law enforcement is prosecuting individuals that flood the streets with dangerous and highly addictive narcotics. Legislators are enacting laws to punish criminals and help good people suffering from poor choices.
Removing Burdensome and Stifling Regulations on Ohio Businesses
Owning and operating a business is a highly respected, yet extremely difficult career decision. Business owners often offer up their life savings in the hope of starting their own business. Markets change, employees come and go, and sometimes things just go awry. Owning a business is difficult. Having burdensome regulations strangle businesses doesn't make owning and operating a business any easier. Businesses should be allowed to thrive. Legislators need to encourage people to start their own businesses and not punish them with unnecessary regulations.
Allowing Ohio Schools the Freedom and Resources to Educate Their Students Effectively
I have no doubt that politicians and bureaucrats at the state level have had good intentions when initiating educational reforms. However, our children and teachers are suffering from these decisions. Giving control of education back to the individual school districts allows for teachers and administrators to teach their children in the most effective ways possible. Cutting back on state testing and regulations will give teachers the time and freedom to focus on students and help them succeed.
Improving and Rebuilding an Aging Infrastructure System
Infrastructure in the U.S. scored a D+ on the most recent report card by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Roads and bridges throughout Ohio are in need of repair. Millions of commuters travel Ohio roads every day for work and recreation. It is time we give our infrastructure the attention it needs.
Protecting Ohioans Constitutional Rights
Owning a firearm is a constitutional right guaranteed to every citizen. Recent political turmoil has called many Americans to question this civil liberty. It is up to all responsible gun-owning Americans to be fully educated on the proper techniques to operate and handle firearms safely. This means properly securing firearms and educating anyone and everyone in an armed household to appropriately fear and respect firearms. I support our 2nd Amendment and will fight to make sure that right is not infringed upon.
Preserving and Defending the Right to Life
Every American deserves the opportunity to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That is why Phil Plummer will fight to protect innocent life. It is up to all of us to protect the lives of the unborn. That means fighting for children from conception to the time of birth. Phil will continuously work to make sure your tax dollars are not funding Abortions in Ohio.
