FINDLAY, OH – Today, Republican State Representative Jon Cross announces his re-election campaign for his fourth and final term in the Ohio House of Representatives. Representative Cross is a compassionate, conservative champion representing the 83rd district, which encompasses Hancock, Hardin, and (part of) Logan Counties.

“I’m humbled and honored to serve the hardworking people of the 83rd district in the Ohio House. In the relentless pursuit of protecting our constitutional rights and freedoms, I’ve voted to pass pro-life, pro-adoption, and pro-family legislation, rigorously defended our Second Amendment rights and fought to keep Ohio open for business during COVID restrictions,” said Cross.

“From an economic standpoint, I’ve sponsored major economic and workforce development legislation that continues to stimulate our economy and helped to make Ohio’s talented workforce the best in America. And I’m proud to have championed over $100 million of state funding, and returned home, to support our local schools, community projects, and infrastructure improvements throughout the 83rd district.

“And when constituents call, I not only answer the phone but actively engage, meeting them in their time of need. From assisting the needs of Indian Lake to advocating the various needs of my constituents, I look forward to continuing to be their voice for our district at the statehouse.”

Representative Cross has also announced his campaign committee chair and co-chairs, assembling an all-star group of civic, business, agriculture, and military leaders who support his re-election to the Ohio House.
