Letter: Bill Reineke Highlights Pro-Life Position on Anniversary of Roe v. Wade
Representative Reineke Cosponsored the Heartbeat Bill (as seen above).
As a man of faith and the father of two wonderful daughters, I am deeply disturbed the tremendous loss of life our country has faced thanks to a fateful decision from nearly five decades ago. On this day 47 years ago, the United States Supreme Court made a decision that continues to do us great harm as a country. In Roe v. Wade, the court used twisted logic to enshrine the right to have an abortion in the United States Constitution. Since that time, approximately 50 million unborn babies have been aborted.
In my time as a legislator since 2015, I have been proud to be endorsed by Ohio Right to Life in my past elections because of my steadfast resolve on this issue. As a state representative, I have voted for every piece of pro-life piece of legislation that received a vote in the Statehouse, including the Heartbeat bill (which prohibits an abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected), defunding planned parenthood, and prohibiting abortions because of a Down Syndrome diagnosis.
I hope all of us in the pro-life community can be inspired by the progress that Ohio has made in the last several years, even with the knowledge that there is more work to do. Thankfully, we have a president committed to appointing pro-life judges and a governor who signed the Heartbeat bill and is unwavering in his commitment to the sanctity of life.
I am running for State Senate to make Ohio a more prosperous state for all of Ohio’s people and to protect the most innocent among us.
In God We Trust,
Representative Bill Reineke

(TIFFIN) – State Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin), Republican candidate for Ohio’s 26th Senate District, issued a statement today reaffirming his strong support for Second amendment rights saying that he would vote “no” on the proposed “red flag” legislation pending in the Ohio General Assembly.
Rep. Reineke issued the following statement:
“I have been an unwavering supporter of the Second Amendment my entire life. All Americans are clearly and unequivocally given a Constitutional right to own and operate a firearm to protect themselves and their families. Red flag laws are government overreach and I am genuinely concerned that they would unduly chip away at law-abiding citizens’ Constitutional rights, which is something I simply cannot support.
Mental health issues are very important to me and we have worked tirelessly at the Statehouse to provide more funding and resources to assist in this crisis. I’m committed to continuing to work on mental health issues without infringing on individual Constitutional rights of Ohioans.”
During his time in the Statehouse, Bill Reineke has been a tireless defender of the 2nd Amendment. In each of his past elections, Bill Reineke has been consistently endorsed by Buckeye Firearms and A-rated by the National Rifle Association.

Ohio Republican Party Endorses Bill Reineke for State Senate
(TIFFIN) – The Ohio Republican Party announced their endorsement of State Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) today in his campaign for Ohio Senate District 26 in the March primary. The 26th District includes Crawford, Marion, Morrow, Sandusky, Seneca, Union, and Wyandot Counties. The endorsement comes just one day after Ohio Republican Party Chairman Jane Timken hosted President Donald Trump at filled-to-capacity rally in Toledo.
Of the endorsement, Reineke expressed gratitude.
“I deeply appreciate the support of Chairman Timken and leaders of the Ohio Republican Party for my State Senate campaign. I have been a conservative Republican my entire life and have consistently supported our shared values as a state representative. The Ohio Republican Party is one of the premier powerhouse organizations in the country, consistently electing conservatives all across our state. I’m grateful to the State Central Committee for their support and look forward to continue working with them now and in the future.”
The Ohio Republican Party endorsement follows a pattern of consistent conservative support for Reineke. Last summer, the Seneca County Republican Party endorsed Reineke unanimously. The campaign announced a team of conservative chairmen for each of the district’s seven counties, which include incumbent Senator Dave Burke and State Representative Riordan McClain. Last week, Reineke announced the endorsements from State Attorney General Dave Yost, State Treasurer Robert Sprague, and Auditor of State Keith Faber.

Online schools, or e-schools, are a product of modern technology, providing students across the country with access to nontraditional education. These online schools are well suited for students who perhaps encountered difficulties in traditional school environments and have allowed young Ohioans to learn in the safety and familiarity of their own homes. In fact, in 2016, 180,000 students were served by e-schools across the country. Because of e-schools’ prevalence in our education system, it has become important to put in place proper checks and guardrails that ensure Ohio’s students receive the quality education they need and deserve.

A new partnership between a local career school and community college is expected to save local families a lot of time and money.
Terra State Community College and Vanguard-Sentinel Career and Technology Centers officially began a partnership to help develop better career pathways for their students on Wednesday.
The goal is to give these students a head start for potential jobs of the future.
"The other side of the issue is you look at our schools with over 30 percent remediation, we need to figure a better way to train our children so that they've got something that they can go forward with school," said Bill Reineke, state representative for Ohio's 88th District.
