Carol O'Brien is a dedicated constitutional conservative. A prosecutor with over 30 years of experience, O’Brien has successfully prosecuted murders, drug traffickers and fought organized crime as the Chief Counsel of the Ohio Organized Crime Commission. She’s kept our communities safe. As a prosecutor, she’s also fought against government and public corruption, bringing those who have abused their power to justice. Washington has a problem getting things done. Carol O’Brien has a reputation for getting results.

jobs & economy

Government does not create jobs. Bad policies, however, can take them away. Burdensome regulations have taken their toll on our small businesses and industries, stifling job growth in our district, and across the country. It’s time to cut the red-tape created by Washington bureaucrats – elected or not – and enact policies that put central Ohio back on the path to prosperity.

transparency

For too long, our government has fallen short on transparency, and accountability. Taxpayer dollars are being wasted on civil settlements, legislation is being crafted behind closed doors, and we have been fighting a healthcare policy that was born without the input of the people whose lives it impacts the most for nearly a decade. We need someone in Congress with experience holding people accountable, and making government more open and transparent to the people it serves.

Carol has fought to keep us safe. As a special prosecutor, Chief Counsel for the Ohio Organized Crime Commission, and as the Delaware County Prosecutor, O’Brien has brought justice to some of the most dangerous criminals in Ohio. From murderers to drug and human trafficking rings, to the frontlines in the fight against the opiate crisis, she has served to protect Ohioans. As a mother of an active-duty Iraq war vet, she understands the threats we face here at home, and the necessity to ensure our military is best equipped to fight the war on terror.
