New year brings opportunities

To the Editor:

To my new constituents in Bexley, many thanks for supporting my re-election to the Ohio House of Representatives.

In asking for your vote, I pledged to continue to work hard to make our neighborhoods the best place to live, work, start a business and raise a family in Ohio. Rest assured that I am committed to providing you with pragmatic, innovative, and effective leadership at the Statehouse and that I will continue to champion legislation to create jobs, improve neighborhood safety, and fight for hardworking taxpayers, for our seniors and for our kids.

I value the many friendships that I enjoy as a result of working in the Ohio House representing the residents and businesses of Columbus. I especially look forward to working more closely with my "new" constituents in Bexley and the other newer areas of the district.

As your state representative, I will work across the aisle to find common-sense solutions to overcome the problems that face us today to build a better, brighter future for us all.

The year 2013 promises to be a busy year, indeed. In addition to my work at the Statehouse, I will continue to host weekly constituent hours throughout the district to meet and talk personally with constituents to learn firsthand about the issues and problems that are front and center in their minds. I look forward to continuing the valuable dialogue with small business owners who attend meetings of my Small Business Advisory Council and will continue to sponsor legislation to foster small business growth to create, retain, and sustain more good-paying jobs in Central Ohio.

Thanks again for your support and best wishes for happy holidays and a healthy and prosperous new year.

Remember, when you have a problem, questions, or concerns with government, please call me at 614-219-9224. I will do everything that I can to help.

Rep. Michael Stinziano
Ohio House 18th District
