WEST CHESTER, Ohio, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Eric Gurr, of West Chester, Ohio filed his petitions today and will face John Boehner in the May primary for the 8th congressional district of Ohio.
"It's time we go this country back on the right track." said Gurr. "We need to stand firm in our opposition to increased spending, increased debt and the endless printing of money to finance that debt. No nation can consume more than it produces and Congress must realize that the money they spend belongs to us."
Gurr is advocating for much smaller government and a return to the traditional value of thrift in spending that has served the nation so well in the past. He is strongly opposed to amnesty and special treatment for big businesses related to immigration reform. Gurr also believes that a select committee should be convened to get to the bottom of the Benghazi tragedy.
Mr. Gurr was born in Hamilton, Ohio in 1965 and has resided in the 8th district for most of his life. He is a married father of three and grandfather of two.
His campaign committee "Gurr for congress" has established a website at www.gurrforcongress.com and can be followed on twitter @gurrforcongress.
