WILMINGTON — U.S. Rep. Mike Carey (R-Ohio 15th District) will speak at the Clinton County GOP’s Annual Lincoln Day Dinner Monday, February 21 at the Expo Center at the Fairgrounds.
Born in 1971, Carey was raised in Sabina. On the family farm, “he was instilled with values that continue to guide him today – hard work, community, and freedom. Following his graduation from East Clinton High School, he followed his family tradition of service, earning an ROTC scholarship, attending the Marion Military Institute, and serving as an officer in the military. During this time, he also earned his bachelor’s degree from the Ohio State University.
As a professional, Carey became an executive for one of the nation’s largest privately owned energy companies, headquartered in Ohio, and, “For more than 20 years, he fought to protect American jobs by fighting back against the same radical energy policies being pushed today by the Democrats. As an advocate for coal miners and American energy independence, he also worked to save miner’s pension benefits, and reverse overreaching government regulations while valuing the environment. Mike is a man of faith and family.”
A father of three, he resides in Columbus with his wife Meghan and their two young sons.
