Jarrod Martin, a lifetime resident of Greene County, filed his petitions last week and announced today that he will seek the Republican nomination in the primary election to be held on March 4, 2008.

Martin owns a small business and noted; “I know what it is like to have to meet a payroll each week, pay taxes, and face the challenge of an ever increasing workers’ compensation premium.” Martin is a member of the Chambers of Commerce of Beavercreek, Fairborn, and Xenia and also participates in the Xenia Chamber’s Young Professionals Committee.
When questioned why he was running for the office, Martin replied, “This is an opportunity for me to serve a greater number of people on a broader set of issues. I’ve been working for the Republican Party and would like to continue with the established tradition of Republican values in Greene County. I am fiscally conservative and take a common-sense approach to problem solving. I am looking forward to continuing my work with the party as we move ahead. I am excited about Ohio’s future and the future of our district.”
“I take pride in working hard for constituents and being accountable and available to them” Martin stated. Anyone wishing to contact him may do so by phone at: 937-475-2235, E-mail:, or on the World Wide Web at:
