Fighting for our Future
Dear Friends and Neighbors:
It is my honor to represent you in the Ohio House of Representatives.
As your State Representative, it is very important to me that we stand together for those issues that affect you, your family and our community. That’s why I am helping lead the fight to protect your tax dollars from unaccountable online charter schools that fail our kids.
I have made Ohio’s environment a top priority by opposing fracking in State Parks and Nature preserves, protecting our precious drinking water and by being a strong and vocal advocate for clean energy jobs and standards.
I have fought to strengthen Ohio families by working to end the marriage penalty in the Ohio income tax, and by sponsoring legislation to rid our neighborhoods of dangerous properties that bring violence into our communities.
Together, we haven’t just defended our American values of freedom, fairness and diversity, but we’ve brought the fight for good jobs, great schools, and affordable healthcare to the steps of the Ohio Statehouse.
My only goal is to make Ohio and our Columbus community the best place to live, work and raise a family. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve.
State Representative David Leland has lived in the 22nd Ohio House District for more than 48 years; always committed to making this north Columbus community a better place to live and work. His commitment to community service has been recognized by many organizations, including the OSU Alumni Association with its Citizenship award.
