EXPANDING SCHOOL CHOICE
While quality public schools are essential, expanding school choice for Ohio’s families by allowing public funds to follow students and teachers instead of just funding public institutions will promote educational opportunities, maintain our public schools and allow affordable options to meet every child’s educational needs.
PROMOTING EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE IN OHIO
Expanding school choice will promote educational excellence and options in Ohio, which currently ranks 20th in the nation in K-12 public education.
QUALITY OHIO PUBLIC EDUCATION
Kathy Grossmann loved being a public-school teacher in the 1990s. All six of her children attended public schools. Kathy will continue to support legislation that maintains quality public education and the right of families to choose other educational options for their children.
The pandemic hit local small businesses the hardest.
As Mayor, Kathy Grossmann initiated Mason’s $2.2M small business COVID recovery programs. Kathy led the creation of innovative recovery programs of $2.2M which provided significant relief to all Mason businesses.
All businesses, regardless of their size, are essential to the families and communities they serve. During the COVID Pandemic, Mason acted in the public interest to support our local economy and businesses."

In 2019, Mason dove into “a new wave of wellness” -the NEW Mason Municipal Aquatic Center!
Kathy led the charge to bring over 900,000 gallons of family fun, wellness and world-class competition to Warren County with Mason’s unique public amenity that will benefit our region for generations to come.
Enhancing Warren County as Ohio’s Largest Playground: A Win-Win Swim for Local Taxpayers and the Region:
For years Mason’s aquatics facilities were under-serving the public.
Kathy initiated a careful cost-benefit analysis of the capital and operational expenses of adding a 50-Meter pool instead of replacing our old leisure /25-M pool combo to the proposed new pool construction in Mason.
Our study revealed that repairing the current pools built in the 1980s could cost almost as much as building a new one and that tangentially adding an enclosed, year-round 50-M competition pool on the campus was substantially less costly than building one at another time and place. We also learned that by adding the capacity needed to expand our current wait-listed programming, we can execute business plans that will generate revenue and off-set the additional operating costs of the new competition pool.
Hosting regional meets, land races and events at our new Aquatic Center will promote tourism and generate revenues for local businesses in Warren County.

CONSERVATIVES CARE DEEPLY ABOUT SUPPORT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT, FIRST RESPONDERS AND 2nd AMENDMENT RIGHTS
Nothing is more important than public safety. Kathy will work to ensure all Ohio jurisdictions have the funds and legislation needed to support law enforcement officers, first responders and criminal justice.
Kathy will fight against leftist policies of defunding the police and decriminalizing crime to keep Warren County and all Ohioans safe.
2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS
Kathy Grossmann will stand strong against anyone taking aim at 2nd Amendment Rights. Enshrined in the Constitution, the Right to Bear Arms is critical to Warren County residents and all Americans. Kathy is a member of the NRA and wishes she was as good a shot as her kids, but she’ll keep practicing.
Kathy Grossmann authored and passed Charter Amendment Issue 14 in 2021.
Issue 14 requires Mason Councilmembers, related staff and counterparties to certify in writing there are no conflicts of interest on real estate transactions.
Prior to Issue 14, taxpayers relied on “the honor system” for politicians to comply with state ethics laws while negotiating public real estate transactions behind closed doors.
Issue 14 protects tax payers so that Mason’s public real estate transactions are transparent, ethical and above reproach."
