One of the biggest threats to the Ohio and National economy is the continued over-spending at the Federal level, so Shelby supports a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Within that Amendment procedure or through a States initiated limited Article V Constitutional Convention to address a Balanced Budget Amendment, ways for the Federal Government to self-fund at no interest should be explored.
Shelby also champions keeping taxes low on individuals and local businesses in combination with an Ohio/America first policy to grow local well-paying jobs. Shelby would also like to see an increased emphasis on vocational training to stimulate wage and job growth.
Lastly, Shelby will work with locally-based financial institutions to explore ways to increase their role in community development, citizen financial literacy, and the economic advantages of local banking.
