It’s official. I filed my petitions and am proud to announce I’m running for reelection!


Today, U.S. Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) officially announced that he will run for re-election as Ohio’s 14th Congressional District representative. Joyce filed his petitions this afternoon at the Lake County Board of Elections, and will hold a campaign kickoff meeting with a group of supporters and volunteers this evening in Lake County. Joyce stated:

“I believe in an American Dream where if you work hard and play by the rules, you can still get ahead. However, I believe there’s much work to be done to ensure that American Dream remains a reality for my three kids and one day their own children.”

Joyce continued, “I’ve spent the last year fighting to get Washington on a budget, protect Ohioans from the health care law, and improve the economy to bring more jobs back to Northeast Ohio. This is about making America more competitive, more innovative and more productive. We’ve accomplished much, but the work is far from over. That’s why I’m humbly asking for the chance to continue my fight on behalf of Northeast Ohio.”

During his first year in Congress, Rep. Joyce has worked to boost jobs and the economy by:

Introducing the SAVE Act which will cut $200 billion in wasteful government spending and programs.

Voting to repeal and fix the Affordable Care Act, including support for the Keep Your Health Plan Act.

Helping pass the first budget in 4 years and supporting No Budget, No Pay, which prohibits Congress from being paid unless they pass a budget.

Voting to hold the IRS accountable for abuses of power.

Boosting our region’s greatest economic and environmental resource, the Great Lakes, by ensuring  Lake Erie receives the resources necessary to continue to be an economic powerhouse and source of job creation.

Joyce was first elected to Congress in November of 2012. He and his wife Kelly live in Russell Township  with their three children. Official re-election video can be found below:
