Creating Jobs and Growing our Economy
Together, we have successfully grown and retained many manufacturing, defense industry and high tech jobs that are important drivers of our local economy as well as industry leaders nation-wide.
Strengthening and Protecting Wright-Patterson Air Force Base
Throughout Turner’s time in Congress, we have successfully added approximately 10,000 jobs at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base—which remains the largest single-site employer in the state of Ohio.
Working closely with community leaders, Turner successfully fought to bring 230 million dollars in federal funding and over 1,000 new jobs to Wright-Patt during the BRAC process.
Fighting for our Military
Congressman Turner continues to work hard to prevent irresponsible and devastating cuts to our military that could seriously jeopardize the ability of our armed forces to protect our national security.
Our servicemen and women make a great deal of sacrifices for our nation.
Ever day, Turner fights to ensure that our brave men and women in uniform have the tools and support they need.
Eliminating Sexual Assault in the Military
In 2007, the military did not believe sexual assault was a serious issue.
Since that time, Congressman Turner worked across the aisle to pass reforms every single year that have taken significant steps to eradicate sexual assault from our military.
Protecting the Parental Rights of our Service Men and Women
Many of our men and women in uniform worry that their custody rights as parents could be in jeopardy due to their service.
Turner authored legislation that would ensure the parental rights of our servicemen and women are protected and that current and future deployment will not influence child custody decisions.
Honoring our Veterans
Access to quality health care and housing for our veterans is an essential responsibility of our government and together we have successfully secured greater access to these critical services for the military heroes in our community.
Making Delphi Right
Five years ago, thousands of Delphi Retirees unjustly lost their pensions in a failed government bailout. Turner won’t stop fighting until these men and women get the answers they deserve and have their pensions fully restored.
