Bio

Congressman Troy Balderson was sworn in as a Member of the United States House of Representatives on September 5, 2018 and represents Ohio's 12th Congressional District. Troy currently serves on the House Agriculture Committee and House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

A lifelong Ohioan, Troy was born and raised in Muskingum County and graduated from Zanesville High School. He attended Muskingum College and The Ohio State University, and worked on the family farm and for his family-owned automotive dealership before pursuing a career in public service.

Troy was first elected to the Ohio House of Representatives in 2008 and was appointed to the Ohio Senate in 2011. Troy was reelected to the Ohio Senate twice and served as chairman of the powerful Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources and as a member of the Senate Finance Committee. During his time in the Ohio Senate, Troy voted to cut taxes by $5 billion, eliminate Ohio's deficit, and replenish the state's rainy-day fund.

As a principled conservative, Troy supports protecting life, Second Amendment rights, and ensuring Ohio's job creators have the tools and resources they need to grow their businesses. As the operator of a family-owned farm, Troy has seen firsthand the damage that government overregulation and burdensome red tape can have on small businesses. He believes government plays a key role in creating the environment for economic growth and prosperity.

An avid runner and cyclist, Troy has completed multi-day adventure races that also involve whitewater rafting and climbing, and finished a 600-mile bike ride through the Rocky Mountains.

Troy currently resides in Zanesville and has one son, Joshua. He has served as an elder at the First Christian Church in Zanesville.
