“I’m so honored and humbled by the support that District 29 residents have placed in me to represent them in the General Assembly. Mike and Joan Carter have served us well, and I will continue to carry their torch of good government and strong leadership.
As your State Representative, I will always put what matters most first – you. That means standing for life, defending the Constitution, supporting our businesses and protecting our conservative values. Thank you for your trust, and I will continue to make Hamilton County the best place to start a business, work, raise a family and retire.” – Greg Vital
