A.J. is running for State Representative to change the pace in Columbus.
Growing up in public housing, the son of a teacher and a manufacturer, he witnessed how addiction can tear people apart and experienced how a good education and job can lift up families like his. It’s this lived experience, and his work as a substitute teacher and job developer, that’s prepared A.J. to be a fighter for everyday Ohioans.
Whether it’s reforming Ohio’s flawed school voucher program, expanding opiate treatment statewide, or passing common sense gun reform, A.J. knows the change Ohio needs because he’s lived it.
