Republican voters in the Ohio House of Representatives 31st district have a choice of two challengers to take on incumbent Denise Driehaus in the primary on May 6th: Norwood accountant Mary Yeager and St. Bernard teacher Mark Auer.
Mark Auer, who has a master’s degree in education administration from Xavier University, teaches elementary school in multiple subjects. His goals, if elected, include lowering taxes, protecting religious freedom and other individual rights, and stopping Common Core. He and his wife have three children.
Mary Yeager, a certified public accountant (CPA) with experience auditing government entities, says her priorities if elected would include stopping Common Core (“I’m very much against it”) and tax reform to bring more jobs to Ohio.
