Celina, Ohio – Mercer County attorney Travis Faber filed his petitions to run in the Republican primary for State Representative of the 84th House District today. Faber is a conservative Republican and the nephew of the current State Representative Keith Faber, who has announced he is running for State Auditor. Formalizing his run for State Representative, Faber turned in 146 signatures from citizens in all four of the counties that make up the district, putting him well above the required 50 signatures needed to place him on the ballot.
“I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the amount of support we’ve seen since announcing my candidacy last year.”
Faber said, adding that he has knocked on over 6,000 doors, attended 4 county fairs, and visited hundreds of community events all over the 84th District to get a chance to hear from voters directly.
Faber has said that his priorities in office will be to promote common-sense government, to pass pro-life legislation including the Heartbeat Bill, to defend Second Amendment rights, and to fight for lower taxes on families, businesses, and farmers.
“We need a strong voice in Columbus who will be able to defend our community’s values. A voice that will protect our strong independent schools and a voice that will make sure our local communities get the resources they need.”
Current State Representative Keith Faber, who already stated that he was proud to support and endorse Travis for State Representative said:
“West Central Ohio has benefited from having strong conservative leaders like Jim Buchy and Jim Zehringer represent our values in Columbus. Travis is the only candidate in this race who will be more than just one voice out of 99 representatives. He will be a strong leader who will hit the ground running on day one.”
Representative Faber added:
“Having someone who understands how to fight for our community is essential. That is why I encourage everyone to join me in supporting Travis Faber, because he is the candidate who already knows how to fight for us, and who has been doing so in this community for years.”
Faber currently practices law in Celina, where he manages Faber & Associates. He focuses his practice on civil litigation and business law.
“I have sat across the table from OSHA and the EPA, and I’ve seen just how harmful job-killing regulations can be. As someone who grew up in a small business household, I want to help our job creators and farmers grow and thrive.”
Travis Faber will be a Republican candidate in the May 8th primary for State Representative of the 84th House District, which is made up of Mercer County and parts of Auglaize, Darke, and Shelby counties.
