August 4th, A Hard Anniversary – It’s Time To *Do Something*

Today, August 4th, marks one year since the Miami Valley experienced one of its darkest moments, for it was that evening when nine people were killed and many more injured as a result of a mass shooting in the Oregon District in downtown Dayton.

Honoring Local Air Force Veterans The Litten Brothers

I was most pleased to be in attendance at the presentation honoring Fairborn resident and Air Force veteran Larry Litten in his hometown of Flushing, Ohio, as he was presented a memorial honoring him and his six other brothers for their combined 132 years of service to our country as members of the U.S. Air […]

Kim McCarthy Responds to the Republican Statehouse Scandal Investigation

The news this week that the Ohio Speaker of the House, Larry Householder, has been arrested along with others on federal charges of racketeering, bribery, money laundering and conspiracy is shocking, to say the least.  This man was elected by the people of Ohio to represent them.

Some Post-Election Thoughts

Hello, fellow lovers of humanity in District 73!  The election results are in, and yes, it looks like we’re currently mired in the same political rut as before, and our vision for a more just and compassionate society did not come to fruition. But that’s OK, and I want to share a few of my […]

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.
