Becker for the 65th State Representative District
The election will be November 6th. I’ve raised over $46,000 and expanded my donor base to about 360 people in six different states! Donation size has ranged from $1 to $1,000 and has averaged $73. You could donate for FREE! You may know that a $50 per taxpayer dollar-for-dollar tax CREDIT (It is $100 on a joint return.) is available every year. The “Ohio political contributions credit” is on line 55 of your Ohio IT 1040. Simply claim it on your state of Ohio tax return and get your money back. Contributions to candidates for State Representative (and other "state offices") qualify for this credit. That is why you will be able to help me, to help you, and have it cost you nothing. I’m Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Pro-Limited Government and Lower Taxes. Please see the following brief videos regarding my candidacy:
