What Is Buckeye State Rural?

Local grassroots organizers formed the Buckeye State Rural PAC, a 527 nonprofit organization, to promote public policies that work for rural communities.

Ohioans, especially those in rural areas, are being neglected by their current representatives. Rural communities have strengths and face challenges that are often ignored when elected officials set priorities for funding and services. Health, job, and education policies that work for urban areas do not necessarily work for families living in small towns and rural areas. Our communities deserve better.

We want to ensure that the representatives we elect understand how they can best serve Ohio’s rural communities. We envision a strong rural Ohio, where challenges are transformed into opportunities. We want to see our representatives implement public policies that value rural workers, strengthen families, and support rural communities adapting to a changing world.  Our efforts focus on the rural counties in Ohio’s Congressional District 15: Athens, Clinton, Fairfield, Fayette, Hocking, Madison, Morgan, Perry, Pickaway, Ross, and Vinton.

 

Who Runs Buckeye State Rural?

All on the Buckeye State Rural Advisory Board are volunteers who represent many perspectives in Ohio’s Congressional District 15.

Our board includes rural small business owners, parents of small town Ohio families, hardworking local farmers, and public servants who understand rural communities.

We believe that real stories from real people are the key to understanding our rural communities. Our Advisory Board is committed to developing a people-focused strategy to promote public policies that value rural workers, strengthen families, and help rural communities thrive.
