Learn what drove Rep. Wes Goodman to run for office and how he won on his first try!
Representative Wes Goodman is currently serving his first term in the Ohio House of Representatives where he represents the 87th district. He represents the county where he was born and grew up, which I think is really cool.
After graduating Ohio’s Wesleyan University with a degree in politics and government, Wes began working full-time in politics. He spent 6 years working for Congressman Jim Jordan and in 2013 he went on to serve as the managing director of the Conservative Action project.
Wes is a principled conservative and has been an incredible example of a servant leader on the campaign trail, as well as in office.
He’s a young guy, in his mid 30s and he’s got a wealth of knowledge that can really help you supercharge your campaign or the one you’re working on.
