Statehouse - 

As part of the Opening Ceremonies of the 130th General Assembly, State Senator Troy Balderson (R–Zanesville) was today officially sworn in as the Senator for the 20th District. Balderson was first appointed to the State Senate in 2011 to fill the unexpired term of State Senator Jimmy Stewart. Prior to his appointment, he was twice elected to the 94th District of the Ohio House of Representatives, serving Muskingum and Coshocton Counties.

“I am proud of the work my colleagues and I have done in the Statehouse over the past few years,” said Balderson. “We’ve closed a projected $8 billion budget deficit, lowered income taxes, and drastically reduced and streamlined state regulations.”

During his tenure in the Ohio House of Representatives, Balderson was named to the powerful House Finance and Appropriations Committee and served as Chairman of the Finance Subcommittee for Agriculture and Natural Resources. In the Senate, Senator Balderson has served as Vice Chairman of the Senate Energy and Public Utilities Committee, the panel’s number two post.

“Having seen our unemployment rating fall by more than two percent, it is clear that we have built a strong momentum that is making Ohio a national economic leader,” Balderson added. “I am looking forward to continuing this progress for the families of central and southeastern Ohio.”
