J.D. is relatively new to the political scene, an advantage he embraces as his ideas truly represent the people in OH-8.

His advice to improve community outreach has been sought by leaders in these groups, and he has shown a commitment to help these groups improve. This commitment has helped his popularity to skyrocket within these groups. J.D. brings enthusiasm and creativity to the district–something that is desperately needed–and these attributes have helped to inspire others to action.
