About John

I'm a farmer. I'm a millennial. I'm an American. I grew up in Appalachia and earned a degree from Cornell University. I'm a Democrat who likes hot dogs and country music. I care about our chances to earn a living, get ahead, and be treated equally under the law. In 2016, I ran for State Representative of Ohio's fightin' 68th district, knocked on 16,000 doors... and lost! This blog aims to encourage civic engagement for all people from all sides .
