On November 10, Campaign Battleground welcomed State Representative Kirk Schuring to our class.

Rep. Schuring represents Ohio’s 48th District, encompassing parts of northern Stark County. His career in public service began in 1993, when he was appointed to a vacant house seat. He was elected to four terms in the Ohio House and two terms in the Ohio Senate before returning to the House in 2011. Rep. Schuring was the Republican nominee for the Ohio 16th congressional district in 2008.

Rep. Schuring joined us to discuss his career, including his time in the state legislature. He touched on a number of current issues, such as redistricting reform, energy efficiency and pension reform. He discussed the nature of campaigning for a state legislative seat, including the fundraising required. He also talked about the 2016 presidential election, giving us valuable insight from the perspective of a member of the state legislature.
