U.S. Congressman to Speak at Ohio Northern University
U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan will speak at Ohio Northern University in The James F. Dicke College of Business Administration’s Dicke Forum on Monday, April 19, at 10 a.m.
Jordan, who represents the Ohio 4th District, will conduct an economic forum with Dr. David McClough’s macroeconomics class. This event is open to the public.
Jordan will also accompany Dr. Jeff Gray, chairman of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, on a tour of the Mathile Center for the Natural Sciences. The center is home to chemistry and biochemistry, two of the institution's signature programs.
In addition, Jordan will meet with students enrolled in the ONU College of Law’s LL.M. program in democratic governance and the rule of law
Jordan is a fiscal conservative who believes that families and taxpayers, rather than government, know how to best make decisions with their money. Throughout his career, Jordan has led the fight against tax hikes, including those proposed by his own political party.
As chairman of the Republican Study Committee’s Budget and Spending Task Force, he introduced the only balanced budget alternative to President Obama’s budget. He continues to support making the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts permanent and has offered a series of budget and appropriations amendments aimed at stemming the excessive growth of government spending. He serves on the House Judiciary Committee, the House Budget Committee, and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Jordan earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin, his master’s degree in education from Ohio State University and his law degree from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio.
