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! :)
