NEW BREMEN — The president of New Bremen Village Council has announced he will be running for the 84th House District seat in the Ohio General Assembly
Jacob Larger, R-New Bremen, will be be seeking the seat formerly held by state Representative Susan Manchester. It was recently drawn open by the Ohio Redistricting Commission.
Larger decided to get into the race with the encouragement of friends, family and business owners in the community.
“With all that is going on in Columbus and Washington, I believe it’s time to put a little more common sense into our government, and in doing so we can leave a better future for our families,” he said.
In announcing his candidacy, Larger acknowledged the conservative legacy he hopes to continue as state Representative.
“From Susan Manchester and Matt Huffman at the state level, to Jim Jordan and Warren Davidson federally, we have been blessed in West Central Ohio to be represented by some of the best legislators in the state. look to continue that proud, conservative tradition in Columbus.”
Larger’s priorities as state representative include supporting pro-life legislation, including creating easier pathways for adoption, as well as standing against restrictions on Second Amendment protections. In addition, Larger states he will fight to keep federal mandates and overreach out of Ohio, which have stifled job growth.
“Whether we’re talking about mandatory vaccines, or overinflated unemployment benefits, hardworking Ohioans should not have to pay the price for certain elected leaders who refuse to effectively govern. Only by getting government out of the way, can we create an environment where our people can live, work and flourish.”
Larger has been on Village Council in New Bremen since 2017. In addition to his local government experience, Larger spent a number of years as an advocate for small business owners, with the National Federation of Independent Business/Ohio, as well as helped streamline Ohio’s workforce development programs as a staff member with the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation.
Larger, who grew up in Kettlersville and New Bremen, came back to New Bremen in 2016, where he lives with his wife, Maria, and three daughters.
