Dwight Loken is a conservative Ohioan with a
Let’s Create Jobs for Ohio
Small business is the backbone of Ohio and this great nation. Dwight will make Ohio business-friendly and job-friendly whether businesses employ 5,000 or only a handful of people.
His 30-year background as an entrepreneur provides him the knowledge of the amount of effort and determination it takes to make it in today’s economy. His previous experience in the corporate world gives him insight into how big business works and how to bring jobs back to Ohioans instead of outsourcing.
Keeping businesses free from over-regulation opens more jobs. More jobs raises wages and improves benefits for all workers.
Fiscal Responsibility, Lower Taxes & Smaller Govt.
American families and businesses pay some of the highest taxes in the world. How can we pay off debt, maintain a savings account, and plan for the future when taxes are through the roof?
We work hard for our money, and a lot of us are being forced to live paycheck-to-paycheck just to make ends meet. We need to lower taxes and let our earnings be our earnings and not the government’s. The best way to reduce taxes is to eliminate wasteful spending, and Dwight will help fix that issue.
Our Students Deserve the Best
Education is key to obtain high-paying jobs and further pursue bigger career opportunities. We need to ensure that all Ohioans have the resources they need to attend and graduate from career/vocational training as well as college and university.
It’s important that we strive to put money into schools and extended scholastic/vocational programs and provide for students an environment in which they can thrive and be successful later in life.
Standing Up for Our Constitutional Rights
In the wake of the recent Texas church shooting and Las Vegas mass shooting, anti-gun activists are out in full force and are determined to strip away our civil liberties. Dwight fully supports our right to bear arms and protect ourselves, and he will always defend the U.S. Constitution.
Violent people make up a very extreme minority of gun owners today and will find a way to obtain weapons one way or another, and the only way of reducing the likelihood of a mass genocide is to take a deeper dive into the mental health programs that are available to those who are violent-natured.
Our founding fathers wrote the Second Amendment to protect our God-given right to bear arms, a right which has existed for centuries, and Dwight will also protect this right.
A Biblical Background & Christian Beliefs
Dwight Loken is pro-life and believes in the sanctity of life.
Psalm 139 says, "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth."
That scripture alone provides enough reasoning to justify the sanctity of life and to show us when life begins... upon conception. Dwight is a Christian conservative family man who protects all life and forms his views on the foundation of the Rock.
Legislating Recovery & Prevention Programs
A happy life without drugs is what every parent wants for his/her kids. We need to jump to the front lines of the opioid crisis in Ohio, and Dwight will fight alongside anyone who is involved or whose life or community has been affected.
This is a "mass fatality crisis" and now a national health emergency. Ohio has been hit hardest by the crisis, with 86% of overdose deaths in the state in 2016 involving an opioid.
Dwight Loken personally worked with the Franklin County Coroner’s Office at the Opiate Crisis Summit in March 2017 to help create awareness and propose solutions, such as recovery and prevention programs and opioid-free medication prescriptions from health care providers. Dwight will work with the 19th District in fighting this battle.
