Statehouse - 

As part of the Opening Ceremonies of the 130th General Assembly, State Senator Joseph Uecker (R–Miami Township) was today officially sworn in as the Senator for the 14th District. Prior to his election to the Senate, Uecker served 4 terms in the Ohio House of Representatives.
 
“Ohio has certainly been no stranger to the economic difficulties that the nation and world have experienced over the past few years,” said Uecker. “However, I am proud of the work we have done in the Statehouse to get Ohio back on the right track and I am looking forward to continuing that momentum in the coming years.”
 
During his time in the Ohio House of Representatives, Uecker served as the Chairman of the House Standing Committee on Commerce and Labor. Highly recognized for his public service, Senator Uecker has been given numerous honors including the Watchdog of the Treasury Award from the United Conservatives of Ohio, Cincinnati Moeller High School Distinguished Alumni Award, and the Friend of Agriculture award from the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation.
 
“Over the past two years, we have renewed our commitment to making Ohio a business and jobs-friendly state by balancing an out-of-control budget, cutting taxes, and reducing regulations,” added Uecker. “With our unemployment rating more than two percent lower than it was two years ago, I’m glad to say that our work in the Statehouse is moving the state in the right direction for Ohio’s workers.”
 
Senator Uecker resides in Miami Township with his wife. Together, the Ueckers have four children and four grandchildren.
