COLUMBUS — State Representative Jeff Rezabek (R-Clayton) has announced he will be seeking re-election to the 43rd Ohio House District in 2016. The 43rd District includes all of Preble County and parts of Montgomery County.
“My work in the General Assembly is made possible only because people entrusted me to represent their values at the Statehouse,” Rezabek said. “I humbly serve on their behalf and with their help and input on so many important issues, I have been proud to sponsor and support legislation that will help Ohio’s economy and families.”
During his first term in the House, Rezabek supported legislation that cut income taxes for all Ohioans totaling $1.2 billion and small business owners, helping them grow and create jobs. That bill also ensured that no school district will receive less state funding than they did in 2015, appropriating an additional $900 million in state aid to Ohio’s schools.
In addition, he has sponsored legislation that expands access to naloxone, a life-saving medication capable of reversing the effects of an opioid-induced drug overdose. He also sponsored a measure that provides $2.5 million in funding to the Montgomery County Port Authority for the Midtown Redevelopment Initiative.
“Representative Rezabek has stepped up to the plate from day one of becoming a member in the Ohio House,” Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger said. “He has been instrumental in our caucus’ policymaking efforts. And more importantly, he demonstrates a dedication and loyalty to his constituents back home. I look forward to helping him return to the House next year.”
Rezabek attended the University of Dayton where he received a bachelor’s degree and Juris Doctorate. He has served on the Alumni Board of Trustees for the University of Dayton School of Law since 1998. Active in his community, Rezabek helps local students as a high school coach and is a legal advocate for the area’s disadvantaged children.
