Becker Wins Endorsement of the Ohio Citizens PAC

Dear John,

I am pleased to inform you that our organization is endorsing you in your race for Clermont County Commissioner. The Ohio Citizens PAC is dedicated to helping to elect conservative, liberty minded “Citizen Representatives” to public and party offices. As you know, we, like you, believe in smaller government, lower taxes, and less government regulation in order to protect individual freedom, liberty, and prosperity for all citizens.

Your conservative voting record in the Ohio House gives us real confidence that you will bring strong fiscal management and smaller government values to the position of Clermont County Commissioner. You have always worked to cut taxes and to pass policies that make government more efficient and more accountable to the citizens. More than anything, citizens want to know that they are getting good value for the services they need for the tax dollars they contribute. No elected official we know has a greater respect for the hard earned dollars of the taxpayer than John Becker. Therefor, the Ohio Citizens PAC encourages all Liberty minded citizens in Clermont County to vote for John Becker for County Commissioner in the 2020 Republican Primary! Citizens can learn more about our organization at www.OhioCitizensPAC.org.

This is what the media says about me:

“Clermont County State Rep. John Becker, one of the most conservative members of the Ohio House…” according to Cleveland.com (August 2019).

Becker wins “Sponsor of Liberty” award by the Republican Liberty Caucus of Ohio (October 2018).

“Becker has a legitimate claim as the state’s most conservative legislator,” according to The [Cleveland] Plain Dealer (September 2017).

“Rep. John Becker, suburban Cincinnati Republican… [holds] the unofficial title as the General Assembly’s most conservative lawmaker,” proclaimed the Columbus Dispatch (September 2015).

Becker wins prestigious William Wilberforce Leadership Award (April 2015).

“GOP Ohio House freshman Becker is no shrinking violet,” headlined the Columbus Dispatch (December 2014).

“Becker…is arguably the most conservative member of the Ohio House,” said The Cincinnati Enquirer (January 2014).

Ranked as a top tier “most archconservative” by the Columbus Dispatch (September 2013).

Being a principled conservative is what earned me that reputation and those accolades. I didn’t go to Columbus to spend your money faster than you can earn it, “kiss up to the right people,” or position myself for a higher office. I went to Columbus to defend, support, and promote your conservative values. That is what I do.

Being a minimalist would best describe my philosophy on government. Regarding taxes and regulations, let’s start with zero and negotiate from there. Obviously, some level of both are required for a functioning society. Only an anarchist would think otherwise. I want to keep taxes and regulations as minimal as possible.

I’ve lived in the Cincinnati area all of my life and in Clermont County most of my life. I bought my first house in Mt. Carmel in 1985. My wife and I built our current home in the Eastgate area in 1991. She has very successfully home schooled our daughter. Please see my resume for more information about my education and career path.

From 2004 until 2012, I’ve held an elected political office called Republican State Committeeman. I was a member of the governing body of the Ohio Republican Party. I’ve also served as a precinct committeeman for the Clermont County Republican Party since 1993. I write The Becker Report. Most of my readers would agree that we need fiscal and social pro-family Christian conservatives in government who are willing to defend, support, and promote the conservative values of Clermont County. That is why I ran for the office of State Representative in 2012.

I became a new State Representative as of January 2013…

Ohio’s 65th House District includes the cities of Milford and Loveland (inside Clermont County) and the townships of Union, Miami, Goshen, Stonelick, and Wayne. The area is approximately the northern or northwestern third of Clermont County.

As you may know, I am one of the few who walk the talk when it comes to supporting conservative legislation. Whether it is eliminating Common Core, Medicaid expansion, or excessive taxes and spending, I have the track record to prove it. Additionally, my support for innocent human life, gun rights, and religious freedom is unwavering.

I want to eliminate Common Core and sanctuary cities. I favor phasing out the Income Tax and Commercial Activities Tax (CAT). Regulatory reform for schools and local governments will allow them to operate more efficiently. For example, Ohio needs to put an end to unfunded mandates. The state should either pay 100 percent of the cost or drop the mandate. Ohio also needs a competitive, cheaper, and more efficient workers compensation program. Furthermore, if medical providers had immunity from malpractice litigation for indigent (charity) care, they could provide health care services more economically.
