Creating and Keeping Jobs
Mike Rasor is an attorney who helps small and midsize businesses grow and succeed. He knows what laws and incentives will stimulate economic growth for the benefit of Ohio families.
Reinvigorating the American Dream
Mike Rasor will fight for each Ohioan’s right to rise. Government cannot stand in the way of an individual’s right to harness his or her God-given potential, no matter if someone is born in poverty, with a disability, or otherwise. Ohio should remove barriers for entrepreneurs to raise capital, open doors for apprenticeships, and lower the cost to get a college or trade school education. This is the way to end generational poverty.
Protecting Tax Dollars
You work hard to earn a living. You deserve leaders who won’t waste your tax dollars. On Stow City Council, Mike Rasor has worked to cut wasteful spending, cut debt by 50 percent, and balance the budget – without raising taxes. Under Mike’s leadership, Stow’s rainy-day fund has reached a high-water mark of $5 million.
Great Public Schools = Great Future
Mike Rasor is a product of Ohio’s public schools, and he keenly understands the need to properly fund them, and then let the professional teachers do their jobs. Part of the funding problem in the 37th District relates to how charter schools are funded. Mike Rasor plans to fix that glitch. He also hopes to reallocate the tax burden, to alleviate property owners of excessive tax rates.
Let’s Conquer the Opioid Epidemic
Mike Rasor believes that we need to attack the market for opioids in the same way you would kill any market–by eliminating supply and culling demand. On the supply side, Mike would fight for high-level felony charges against any dealer of synthetic opioids and manslaughter charges if it can be proven that the dealer’s drugs led to an overdose death. Mike would also attack the over-supply of prescription painkillers and pill mills, which are causing this epidemic. But Mike also believes it’s critical to never give up on those who are addicted, and to provide all of the care, compassion and love that is necessary to give them a chance to live again.
Investing into our Future
Mike Rasor understands that Ohio must do a better job at investing into transportation, schools, and other infrastructure. Failing to maintain, replace, and improve our infrastructure does not constitute a savings; it only kicks the can down the road to a future generation.
Supporting First Responders
Mike Rasor will always have the backs of Ohio’s first responders, because they have always had ours. Mike Rasor understands police have a difficult job, and will not try to score political points at an officer’s expense.
Working across the Aisle
Mike Rasor was twice elected as president of Stow City Council, unanimously by both Republicans and Democrats. This illustrates that Mike will work with members of either party to tackle a difficult problem, and he won’t play the petty games that we see in Washington today.
Eliminating Dumb Laws
As a Stow Councilman, Mike took it upon himself to review every page of city ordinances to find “dumb” laws. Then he went about repealing them. Mike will take this same approach to repeal dumb laws within the Ohio Revised Code and Ohio Administrative Code, because he believes dumb laws cost Ohio jobs and can be used improperly by the government.
Empowering Local Control of Schools
Mike Rasor graduated from Stow-Munroe Falls High School and believes in our local schools. We can trust Mike Rasor to fight for local control of our schools. Common core must be repealed. Teachers and parents must be empowered, not Columbus and Washington political insiders.
Mike and his wife, Laura, are raising their daughter to respect God and the sanctity of human life. We can trust Mike Rasor to protect the unborn.
