Tim is an independent, no-nonsense Congressman from Ohio. He is fighting to rebuild our economy by investing in American workers. Tim was raised in a small city in Northeast Ohio called Niles, right outside Youngstown.
A lifelong Rust Belt native, Tim understands that the American Dream is too far out of reach. That’s why he’s focused on restoring stability to our fractured communities. He wants to do that by rebuilding our economy to work for all Americans. He is committed to building an economy that inspires investment. One that fosters entrepreneurship and growth.
Before being elected to Congress, Tim served in the Ohio State Senate. He began his career as a congressional aide in 1995. Tim has a law degree from the University Of New Hampshire School Of Law, and a bachelor’s degree from Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
