Matt Dolan Brings #OhioMatters Town Hall to Washington County

Marietta, OH – This evening, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Dolan brought his #OhioMatters Town Hall Tour and conservative record to Washington County to hear directly from Southeast Ohio Republicans about the issues on their mind.

At the event, Matt stressed that Republicans have traditionally been the party of limited government and protecting individual liberty and that we must bring action to these ideas.  As The Marietta Times reported on the front page, Matt said:

“We’ve always been the party of ideas, but we’ve haven’t always been the party of executing those ideas. What I think I bring to the primary is somebody with private and public sector experience that believes Republican ideas are better…believes that when Republicans are in charge, the state and country are stronger, but if we don’t take our ideas and execute and engage and be willing to get things done, then we lose.”

Dolan was also featured on WTAP, where he said, “How can anyone else come to Washington County and say I’m going to fight for you in Washington County and you turn your back and say ‘Nope, you’re not getting broadband.”

Matt delivered remarks and then proceeded to take questions from crowd for over an hour. Subject matter addressed directly by Matt included:

  • Matt’s decision to enter the race to turn the focus back onto the people of Ohio
  • The state budget he authored that the Ohio Republican Party describes as “the most conservative budget in state legislative history”
  • Matt’s record of promoting school choice
  • The important role of the federal government in special education funding for Ohio students
  • Out-of-control federal spending and Matt’s plan to stop it
  • Streamlining the federal government
  • Matt’s fight to lower the cost of prescription drugs
  • Putting a stop to insider trading by elected representatives
  • Standing up to Russia’s increasingly hostile actions towards Ukraine
