I make no habit of publicly endorsing candidates for office. However, considering the gravity of the issues facing Seneca County, and out of deep respect and consideration of my friends and neighbors, I wish to opine on the matter of deciding our next State Representative.
Only one candidate has demonstrated the leadership qualities required for the office of State Representative. Only one candidate appreciates the importance of building relationships with constituents and other elected officials. Only one candidate compassionately listens to the concerns of the citizens they seek to represent. Only one candidate has demonstrated the ability to turn words into action. That candidate, and the one most suitable to serve as our next State Representative, is Gary Click.
It is no mistake that Governor Mike DeWine, Lieutenant Governor John Husted, along with the mayors of Attica, Bellevue, Bettsville, Bloomville, Clyde, Fremont, Gibsonburg, Lindsey, Republic, Woodville, and numerous others yet to be announced, have all endorsed Gary Click for State Representative. Gaining the endorsements of city council members from Bellevue to Fostoria, Tiffin to Fremont, Gary Click has made building relationships one of the key principles of his campaign. Every candidate for public office must appreciate and understand the concerns of the constituents AND be proficient in establishing relationships with others in order to be a truly effective State Representative.
As the ONLY candidate to be endorsed by the Ohio Right to Life, Gary Click will defend the sanctity of life including that of the unborn. With a firm understanding of American history, Gary Click will guard our constitutional freedoms including our Second Amendment rights. As an Ohio delegate for the Trump 2020 re-election campaign, Gary Click is the only candidate to have demonstrated genuine support for President Donald Trump.
To my friends and neighbors, there is hope for Ohio and it starts with Gary Click as our next State Representative.

Gary established the Faith Coalition for DeWine Husted for Ohio in 2018 reaching out to faith groups across Ohio.
In 2019, he was commissioned with establishing the Governor's Evangelical Advisory Council with a diverse group of pastors from all across Ohio. The first act of this council was to present Governor DeWine with the Champion of Life Award for his commitment to sign the Heartbeat Bill. The next day, the administration called and invited Gary to attend the signing of the Heartbeat Bill.
Gary is honored to receive the endorsements of Governor Mike DeWine and Lt. Governor John Husted.

I have been impressed with Gary’s ability to thoroughly understand the dynamics of the industrial wind turbine projects that are being proposed in the 88th district. He has educated himself and he understands that every person in the district deserves a voice in the siting process and he will not rest until he secures it. I can attest to that because I have witnessed first-hand his incredible passion and drive! He has provided great support in our efforts and has shown what type of representative he will be for our area. The 88th district has an important decision on March 17th and Gary Click is the right choice.— Chris Aichholz
On the wind issue Gary had the innate political skill to immediately recognize that it has nothing to do with whether wind energy is good or bad, but instead has everything to do with ALL local residents having a voice by vote in the decision since it transforms the ENTIRE community. His ability to see through the obscuring layers of conflicting rhetoric surrounding this polarizing topic without being blinded by political correctness, technical details, or personal interests demonstrates that Gary is well suited for the position of State Representative for our 88th district. A win for Gary will be a win for us all.— Jim Feasel
I had the pleasure of meeting Gary at our Village Council Meeting in Bloomville last week. We also had some good conversation following the meeting. Gary earned my vote through that conversation with his views on different topics and how genuine of a person he is. We need more individuals like Gary representing the people. Proud to say I'll be voting for Gary Click on 3/17/2020!!— David Auble Jr
I have known Gary as a friend and in a professional capacity for about 14 years. He has always proven himself trustworthy and true to his word. I also believe he is tenacious enough to see any job and/or responsibility through to completion. I wholeheartedly endorse Gary Click as THE candidate for the 88th District to the Ohio House of Representatives.— Bill Brown
In the past months, I have had the opportunity to get to know Gary Click. Mr. Click is honest, pragmatic, and has insight into the state’s problems and needs. His willingness to examine the issues and listen closely to questions and concerns from the residents of Ohio sets him far apart from the other candidates expected techniques and talk.

I hope you will support Gary with your vote!

Had a coffee with Gary today and had a discussion on a number of topics. I found him to be open, he is willing to listen and is very easy to talk to on a number of topics. I also found him to be very knowledgeable in a number of topic discussed and the values our country was founded on. What impressed me was he knew which founder those values came from. Told me I needed to do more research. We are in the agreement on all issues with minor disagreements on some. Most of the issues discussed dealt with family values and constitutional rights. Some in the areas of getting the government to work for the people again and the size of government. I feel based on these discussions he will make a very good representative for our district in Columbus and will not be a voice of the party, but a voice for the people he represents and his values.

It’s vital that we vote our values, so I encourage you to vote for Gary Click for State Representative. Gary Click is an effective advocate for conservative values, religious freedom, economic opportunity and lower taxes. He also devotes a significant amount of time and effort working in the community through Fremont Baptist Temple, as Pastor. Gary's experience on Ohio Republican State Central Committee, means he understands how state government works – and doesn’t . Gary Click can hit the ground running on day one of his term. I especially appreciate Gary's thoughtful leadership. He seeks out new ideas and different perspectives, weighs the alternatives, considers possible outcomes and develops reasonable positions. Gary Click is approachable and engaged, and genuinely committed to governing well. There is only one choice in the 88th Ohio House District, Gary Click for State Representative.
— John Popelka
Standing with you Pastor Gary all the way!
— Marie Jackson
Gary is a down to earth man with all the benefits and flaws that go with being a normal human being. He is smart enough to know when to ask for help and to know where to go for help - he has strong moral convictions - and the strength to do what is right. He has the perseverance of character we all want and expect and knows when to ask for forgiveness. Better yet he knows how to be humble and receive forgiveness. For all of these reasons, I encourage you to Vote for Gary Click - Part of the solution and not part of the problem.....
— Jon Morrow
To whom it may concern: I have known Gary Click quite some time in association with tried and true Republican values. He is solidly conservative and logical in what he says and does as a member of the State Republican Central Committee. He attends conservative functions including North Central Ohio Conservatives, where I am Vice President, and the Seneca County Republican Central Committee's events. He and I shared a meal tonight (October 8th) and I had a chance to ask him about his ideals and ideas for the future of the 88th District House seat he seeks, as well as the future of the State of Ohio and America overall, and his answers were completely compatible with my thoughts and ideas. It is my pleasure and my honor to endorse him. Respectfully Submitted, Michael Oberlander member of the Seneca County Republican Central Committee representing Republic Village, precinct 45.
