Exploration Two: Our first Blog Post

     Hello Everyone! My name is Tanner Hale and I am from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I graduated from Marion Harding High School in 2014. I am currently in my second year here at Ohio State and I am a Political Science as well as an economics major. Along with my two majors, I am pre-law and I plan on attending law school (hopefully at the Ohio State University) to get my law degree and be the elected county prosecutor. I have held a job at Speedway since being in college. I played football, basketball, cross country and track, where my personal record in the mile in track is a 4:56. I am currently training for the October 18th, 2015 Columbus Marathon. I lettered in both track and cross country in high school.
     I am the youngest Republican candidate in the state of Ohio running for public office. I am running for Marion City Council in the 3rd ward in the city of Marion and I am enjoying the campaign! I am the youngest candidate to have ever run in the history of Marion County, as well as being the youngest in history to be elected to Marion County Republican Central Committee at the age of 18. I currently am very involved with college politics, currently serving as the Chairman of the Marion College Republicans and the Marion County Chair for the Harding Area Young Republicans group.  I was nominated unanimously to be the Marion County Republican of the month for March 2015 and I currently am the Marion County Campaign Manager for Tom Whiston's 87th Ohio House district race for the March primary.
     After reading Chapter 1 of the Call to Write, a few things stood out to me. The main thing that was derived from the Chapter was mostly the prevalence of writing and reading, which showed me in particular how amazing literature can be. People tend to express what is in their hearts and souls through literature and a can become attached to reading and writing not necessarily from the context of literature, but that they draw a personal connection or find some relatability in the piece. I think that the Call to Write was an excellent way to establish the textbook, because people generally think that writing is just something we see and do, but in all reality is a pathway to express emotions and feelings.
     I look forward to a great semester with all of you! :)

  1. I went to Myrtle Beach back in May I loved it there. I don't know if it would be as fun growing up there but living by the beach is not the worst place you could live.

  2. That's awesome your already running for an office! Good luck to you.

  3. We may have different political views but I think we can both agree that what you are doing is amazing. It is about time more young people get involved in politics. I wish you the best of luck with your campaigning.

    1. Thank you Jared, keep up with what you are doing too. I appreciate your best wishes!
