Columbus - 
As part of the opening ceremonies for the 129th  Session of the Ohio General Assembly,  Kevin Bacon (R-Minerva Park) was sworn in for a four-year term as the Senator for the 3rd  Ohio  Senate District, which includes roughly the eastern third of Franklin County.  

Bacon comes to the Ohio Senate after serving two terms in the Ohio House of Representatives, where  he worked to improve Ohio's climate for jobs and economic development and has been recognized as a  leading advocate for children and individuals with special needs. 

"A slow economy and high unemployment rate mean tough times for central Ohio families and  significant challenges facing the legislature," Bacon said. "I am committed to working hard on behalf  of my constituents to prioritize limited resources, investing in areas that will grow the economy for the  long run, while ensuring an adequate safety net for Ohioans in need in the short run." 

In addition to his work at the Statehouse, Senator Bacon is a practicing attorney, specializing in estate  planning, small business and real estate law. He previously served as a Blendon Township Trustee, as an enforcement attorney for the Ohio Department of Commerce and a prosecutor for the Lancaster  City Attorney's office. 

A resident of Minerva Park, Senator Bacon is the proud father of three girls, who attend Westerville  schools. He has been active in the Central Ohio community through a number of worthy organizations,  including the Dublin-Worthington Rotary, the Ohio Bar Association, the Columbus Bar Association,  the Ohio Commission on Fatherhood as well as the Worthington, Columbus, Westerville, New Albany  and Gahanna chambers of commerce. He is also a former Capital Law School Alumni Board member. 

Senator Bacon received his bachelor's degree in political science from Miami University and his law  degree from Capital Law School, where he served as student body president.
