My name is Richard Crosby; I am a husband, father, attorney, and entrepreneur, and now I’m running to be a voice for citizens of Ohio's 2nd congressional district.
I was blessed to grow up in a household where the values of hard work, dedication, and public service were instilled in me at a young age. My father was a Commander with the Columbus Police Department where he proudly served for over thirty-three years. My mother managed a dental office where she exhibited an unparalleled work ethic. Growing up in a union household, I know that when hard work meets perseverance and determination, anything is possible.
It is with these values that I live my life. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Ohio University and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Dayton School of Law. I was then privileged to clerk for one of the most distinguished Common Pleas Judges in the State of Ohio before working as a Prosecutor for the City of Cincinnati and subsequently moving to a firm.
I am running for Congress because I want to serve. I want to create solutions for the people of our district and country instead of simply managing problems. I want to be the leader that the constituents of this district deserve! No longer will we be divided; No longer will we stand idle; From this point forward, we stand together.
