Beavercreek High School Receives a Special Visit
A chilly auditorium didn’t stop a heated debate. Candidates running for State Representative, Rick Perales (Republican) and Dave Ogan (Democrat) visited Beavercreek High School to reach out to the seniors partaking in government class and discuss their standpoint on issues concerning House District 73, which includes the city of Beavercreek.
Both candidates had a lot to say in a restricted amount of time. With only about an hour to convey their stances, they were able to show to all of the classes that they are respectable people. “I do not believe that trashing somebody else makes you look better,” said Ogan.
Ogan is the only person competing against the incumbent, but this is does not discourage Perales. “I think choices of candidates are important,” he said, “I love campaigning and connecting with my constituents.”
These two opponents are passionate, confident, and believe in the positive development of our community. They both made it clear to the students that they are for better, faster, and cheaper government.
Having these politicians come in to answer questions and connect with the students was a great experience and we are appreciative that they took the time to visit.
