State Senator Rob McColley represents the 1st Senate District, which includes Defiance, Hancock, Hardin, Henry, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert, and Williams counties, as well as part of Auglaize, Fulton, and Logan counties.
"I don’t believe government creates jobs, but it can help create the pro-growth economic environment where job creation thrives."
- Rob McColley
Enabling Job Creation
Ohio has become one of the top three job creating states in the nation, setting new records for the number of businesses setting up shop here.
Training Our Workforce
Our education system is not serving the best interests of many of our students. Schools are confined by strict curriculum standards and state mandates that do not cultivate career skills in those not headed to a four-year university.
Strengthening Our Schools
Our children are the workforce of tomorrow. Therefore, the quality of their training is paramount to the economic vitality of our state.
Honoring Human Life
We must do everything we can to serve mothers and their children by protecting the sanctity of human life.
Fighting the Drug Crisis
Last year, my colleagues and I worked to invest more than $1 billion in the fight against drug abuse and addiction, and our new budget builds on that commitment.
