My Values

As a proud Westsider, I've witnessed firsthand the resilience and dedication of Ohioans in our community. Growing up in a family where hard work was not just a principle but a way of life, I understand the importance of honoring every job and advocating for fair working conditions. This upbringing shaped my commitment to these three core values: Opportunity, Freedom, and Security. My fight for Ohioans isn't just a political promise; it's a personal mission. I am ready to champion policies that ensure every Westsider has a fair shot at living their American Dream.


Hard Work Honored

Every day, Ohioans put in the work that keeps our state growing. It doesn’t matter what job you do. Your work deserves respect. 

Collective Strength through Unions

The ability to join a union is a cornerstone of American workers’ rights. I will always advocate for collective bargaining to protect higher wages, better benefits, and safer working conditions. 

Fund Public Education

Ensuring every child has access to high-quality public education is about opening doors for their futures. Strong public schools are the launchpads for our children's futures, preparing them for success in life and careers.


Accessible Healthcare

All Ohioans deserve affordable healthcare and the right to make choices about their care. I will work to bring down the cost of healthcare and ensure no one is denied the care they need because of cost.

LGBTQ+ & Reproductive Rights

Women in Ohio have the right to make their own healthcare choices without fear of being arrested. I will fight any legislation that puts the government in the doctor's office and takes away our right to make the right choice for us and our families. As a gay man, Eli will fight back against attacks on the LGBTQ+ community and stand up for equality.


Safe Communities

It's important that our community feels protected. As the son of a firefighter, I will always support our first responders, work to prevent those who pose a threat to our community from accessing guns and build strong partnerships between community members and first responders.

Attainable Housing

Across our neighborhoods, the cost of owning or renting a home is rising faster than our wages. I will fight to ensure seniors are not priced out of their homes, renters are protected from negligent landlords, and as central Ohio grows, all Ohioans can achieve homeownership.
