Welcome To The Campaign That Is Investing In People First!

Join the people with Kim McCarthy who are dedicated to electing a candidate to the Statehouse who will represent the values and concerns of ordinary citizens, not career politicians who are beholden to private corporate interests at the expense of us.



Our elections should not be auctions, and public financing of campaigns for public office should be part of a comprehensive overhaul of our campaign financing system.


I support sustainable energy and restitution for communities impacted disproportionately by fossil fuel industry losses.


The so-called “war on drugs” is a failure. Evidence shows that treating substance addiction as a health issue rather than a criminal matter is the effective path towards solving these problems.


I support a livable wage for all workers. We are currently experiencing the largest wealth gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ in American history. This is untenable.


I support a strong and well-funded public education system. We cannot continually take money away from our schools and expect to have a well-educated and productive society.

Privatizing Telecommunications at the Expense of Public Safety

One of the issues my campaign is focused on that doesn’t get a lot of attention, especially from the incumbent, is regarding telecommunication policy. Ohio, like so many other GOP-controlled states, has seen constant moves to ‘deregulate’ these vitally essential services. Done in the name of increasing “competition” and lowering prices, it almost always has…
