Maple announces campaign for 2020 write-in candidacy

| August 21, 2020

Tyler Maple has officially declared his write-in campaign to run for Ohio House Representative for District 72 in the 2020 general election. Maple, a Coshocton native, is running his campaign on fiscal responsibility, protection of the Second Amendment, the advocation for civil rights, and fighting corruption at the state level. He also wants to better represent essential workers, many whom voices he feel have gone unheard or have been treated unfairly during the outbreak of Covid-19. Maple has been an essential worker since the pandemic began and is a student currently enrolled at Ohio University Zanesville. He also has been a volunteer working with the Coshocton Visitors Bureau and Our Town Coshocton.

Maple thinks it is time for “new blood” when it comes to political leadership and cites it as one of the main reasons he has decided to run for office. He has been involved in recent local elections as a volunteer for various campaigns and believes now is the time to stand as a candidate.

“When I heard the news about Householder’s indictment, I figured it was a good time to throw my hat into the ring,” Maple said, “Our District deserves so much better than crooked politicians who think irresponsible spending and back room deals are the ways to stay in office. People need representatives who are actually going to stand up and fight for them.”

Maple also believes in prioritizing bringing broadband access to rural communities in light of the pandemic affecting District 72. He believes that limited access to broadband makes it difficult for the district’s school children, especially with education moving towards a more virtual atmosphere for this coming school year.

Maple’s name will not physically appear on the ballot, his name can be written in on the ballot as an official write-in candidate. The General election is Tuesday, Nov. 3. The election for Ohio House Representatives will appear on the ballot.
