ūüĆĻ MEET STEVE + THE SOCIALWAGE

When you ask me who I am, I am my parents’ son.¬† They were hardworking¬†Ohioans who¬†established¬†congregational houses of worship, built homes, and¬†cared for¬†other people’s children, all in Congressional District 2.

Sequentially I am a multigenerational- and lifetime-constituent of our district, the proud pupil of public schools from pre-kindergarten through graduate school, and an employee relations administrator by profession.

As an Independent, nonpartisan U.S. Representative, I will do the job with well-thought resolve:¬† my team‚Äôs highest priority is to enact¬†the socialwage, a minimum wage that rises with gross national productivity‚ÄĒwhat nationals make worldwide‚ÄĒand where working people¬†are paid immediately after each¬†shift of work¬†rather than bi-weekly.¬† If our national minimum wage¬†had increased at the same rate of incomes¬†going to the top 1 percent of taxpayers, it would have¬†reached over $33-an-hour in 2007.¬† That’s $264.00 or more¬†being deposited each day¬†for¬†most wage earners.

I am a three-time Cincinnati graduate:Steve Website

  • Baccalaureate, Organizational Leadership & Industrial Psychology, National Honors in Psychology
  • Associate,¬†Behavioral Science, National Honors in Leadership

As Youth Employment Counselor for Clermont Manpower Consortium from 1980 to 1983, I initiated and operated policy for youth training and skills development. I led the successful effort to prevent development of the Milford flood plain in the 1990s and 2000s, site of New Finley Ray Park and Valley View Nature Preserve today.  I presided as Grand Jury Foreman from 2000 to 2001, hearing a multitude of cases, including one resulting in an Ohio state law bringing tougher punishments to adults who murder minors.

Father's DayI coached community sports from 1980 to 2005 and have been an active environmentalist my entire career without apology.  I have been on both sides of the negotiating table with employees and have hired thousands of people for good-paying jobs in my 42 years of professional experience.

I engaged hundreds more Ohioans in the nonpartisan efforts to cohere nonpartisan districts in 2012 and Take A Stand On Social Security in 2016.  I serve as AARP Precinct Captain and mobilize at polls in full-force for retirement security.

My values are your values.

I will never forget where I am from!
