NATHAN MARTINKelly Kohls
Nathan Martin is running FOR THE OHIO HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES District 2
I am a veteran, father, businessman and public servant. I am the son of a preacher from the plains of Nebraska, and a strong principled conservative who holds the values of God, Family, and Country most dear. I express these values through my advocacy of faith, family, and freedom through grassroots organization and seminars on faith’s engagement in politics.
I currently reside in Shelby, Ohio with my wife Mandi (of 17 years) and our seven children.
We attend Berean Baptist Church in Mansfield, OH and I am a member of the Richland County Republican Party.
I graduated from Lee University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science (2003) and a Masters in Teaching History and Government (2004).
I served in Iraq from November of 2004 to November of 2005 with the 1/278th ACR Tennessee Army National Guard. While in Iraq, I served as our Battalion Casualty Operations Officer, Strength Accountability, and helped train two Iraqi Battalions in personnel operations. I served from 2001-2015.
While in Iraq, I developed a grassroots operations system and have helped consult on grassroots techniques with several campaigns/organizations notably the RNC, Chuck DeVore for Senate, and the Health Care Compact. I firmly believe in campaign ground operations as a supreme tool of civic involvement.
