Ohio’s 5th District

Nick Rubando

for Congress

A native of Holland, Ohio, Nick is looking to restore trust, dignity, and honest representation to Ohio’s 5th Congressional District.

Functional Government Starts with Trust

Meet Nick

Nick grew up in Holland, Ohio—a small working class town outside of Toledo. He’s the oldest of
three kids. His mother is an artist and a hairdresser. His father is a small business owner.

Growing up, his parents were adamant about creativity, community, and connection. They encouraged Nick to participate in the community and find ways to give back. As a result, Nick spent much of his youth volunteering and finding ways to be of service.

What I Stand For

Expanding Our Healthcare

Healthcare is a right and not a privilege. No one in this country should go bankrupt because they can’t afford basic care.

The Affordable Care Act improved the lives of my family and millions of Americans, but we can’t stop there. Medicare for All will allow us to offer full vision, dental, and mental health benefits to every American. We can ensure that we are investing in preventative care without having the burden of skyrocketing co-pays, premiums, and deductibles. It is time we join almost every other developed nation in the world, and value patients over profits. 

Improving Our Economy

Instead of providing billion dollar tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest Americans, I would invest in early childhood care & education.

I would support Unions with job training and apprenticeship programs, and I would expand rural broadband to keep farmers connected to the markets. I would increase the earned income tax credit, ensure equal pay for equal work, and invest in environmentally friendly infrastructure to make certain anyone with a full time job is able to live a healthy, productive life.

Protecting Our Environment

The Climate Crisis is real. This is a global issue that will affect millions of people world-wide, and we need to ensure that we are leading the charge for environmental justice.

The United States must transition to a carbon-free, 100% renewable energy system. This will not only help to save the planet, but it will offer outstanding economic opportunities for OH-05 and the nation. While some politicians have spent their careers denying the existence of Climate Change, I will spend my time in Congress taking a proactive approach and support legislation that will create high-paying green jobs and help protect the planet for generations to come.

Make a Donation

This campaign is entirely funded by individual donors like you. I do not accept money from corporate PACs because I believe Congress should be held accountable by the constituents they represent, not corporate donors or lobbyists.
