Create Economic Opportunity for All Ohioans
Our communities are what make Ohio such a great place to live, work, and raise a family. Allison is committed to providing Ohioans with economic strategies that sustain our working families and vibrant communities.
Allison’s own mother worked multiple jobs just to support her children and lift their family out of poverty. From that early childhood experience, Allison learned the hard way that hard work and determination will only get you so far. As State Representative, Allison will make it a priority to strengthen the middle class by supporting economic policies that create good-paying jobs right here in Central Ohio.
Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Allison also believes our local and small businesses are vital to the long-term vibrancy of our communities. Allison will encourage innovation and economic growth by supporting state initiatives that cultivate new business leaders and entrepreneurs so that economic prosperity continues. Local prosperity ensures that future generations will continue to work and raise their families in our communities.
Central Ohio is on track to add one million new people in the next 40 years. Addressing increasing infrastructure demands, especially to roads and cyberinfrastructure, will be critical in the future to grow jobs and move goods and services. Allison will advance recession-proof policies and the restoration of local government funds so that towns and communities can respond to these demands and not run the risk of watching the world pass us by.
Equal Pay and Paid Family Leave
As a mother of three, Allison knows how difficult it is to get ahead in your career while caring for young children. Working women and men need the opportunity to care for their children or aging parents without being penalized in the workplace. Ohio’s working mothers and fathers need leaders in Columbus who will support equal pay and paid family leave to sustain working families of the 21st century.
