The 2016 election season is well under way. I have recently obtained a lot of endorsements from many great organizations which represent millions of Ohioans. My endorsement page is being updated with the latest endorsements so check back soon. Most recently I obtained the Ohio Right to Life Endorsement. One endorsement I didn't receive, nor expect, was from the Ohio Education Association (OEA). Interestingly they did not endorse in the 67th Ohio House race. So my Democratic opponent did not receive it either. They noted in their letter to me that I did not screen for the seat. That is correct as their date was in conflict with my schedule. Regardless of your political stance, I am willing to listen to the other side and I have done so, including listening to the concerns of the OEA.
I am helping to get-out-the-vote in Delaware County. If you are interested in helping on any of the campaigns including my own, please fill out your information on my contact page. I am helping to reelect Rob Portman to the US Senate and I am Co-Chairing the Trump election campaign for Delaware County. I am also helping Judge David Gormely run for the 5th District Court of Appeals. David is an outstanding common pleas judge and he would make a great appeals court judge.

Finally, I am fighting to reduce taxes, fix school funding, cut unnecessary government regulations, protecting our second amendment and the life of the unborn. God willing and with your help, I will continue to serve in the Ohio House of Representatives.
Today was the filing deadline, and I have learned that I have a primary challenger. One person filed against me. The primary election is in March, which means that I have to start campaigning -- tomorrow.Read more
State Rep. Andrew Brenner (R-Powell) is proud to announce that an initiative he has been working on since his previous term in office has been placed in to the Ohio House's budget proposal, Sub. House Bill 64. As a result, the Olentangy Local School District, schools in the 67th House district, and other schools throughout Ohio will receive more state dollars than current levels.Read more
Today at 1pm, the Ohio House will go in to session to consider a number of bills, including Rep. Brenner's HB 228.
The election is over, and thanks to the support from so many of you, I received 68% of the vote. My opponent was drawing volunteers from all over the state of Ohio to come and support him, but you helped share my record, our values and your belief in what we can do in the future.
Right now in the Ohio House, we're back in full swing. I'm working on HB 228 with Rep. Anne Gonzales, a bill that would cut down on the hours of testing that children have to undergo each year in school. Under PARCC, children have 27-32 hours in end course in exams. Under HB 228, we would reduce it to 4 hours per subject (not 4 hours only, as the media has frequently mis-reported it to be).
It's time to vote! Polls are open 6:30am - 7:30pm ET. If you need information on voting within Delaware County, where the district I represent is located, please contact the Delaware County Board of Elections by calling 740.833.2080. You may also visit their website at http://www.co.delaware.oh.us/boe/ including finding your polling place at http://voterfind.com/delawareoh/pollfinder.aspx.Read more
It's hard to believe it, but early voting starts on September 30! I need your help to get out the vote between now and then, and through November 4.
Please sign up to volunteer here, and when we have opportunities for you to lend a hand (stuffing envelopes, going door to door, sharing posts, writing letters to the editor, etc.) we will make sure you're one of the first to know. In some cases, we may only contact those who have volunteered to help.Read more
As we are now 13 years removed from the horrible tragedies of September 11, 2001, we are closing in on soon being a generation away from those events. But what happened on 9-11 is something that our future generations cannot be allowed to forget. It simply is not acceptable.
As a legislator, one of the things I can do to help is to make sure that we never forget about Patriot Day (September 11) in Ohio.Read more
In 1992, I attended the Republican National Committee's convention. I stood just below former President Ronald Reagan, to his right, when he gave this amazing speech. I encourage you to listen to it. This is the Republican Party that that I grew up in, and President Reagan is the reason I became a Republican.
In June of 2013, I told you about HB 97 to make October Dyslexia Awareness Month in Ohio. The act was signed in to law by the governor and effective January 30, 2014. See which representatives and senators signed on to HB 97 by clicking here.
Dyslexia is a brain-based learning disability that impairs a person’s ability to read. Common characteristics of a person with dyslexia include difficulty with phonological processing (the manipulation of sounds), spelling, and rapid visual-verbal responding.
