J.D. Winteregg lives in Troy with his wife, Aimee, and son. He is a former educator who works at a locally-known grain elevator, and he has taken an unconventional route to political involvement—one steeped in the desire to create a greater level of access, accountability, and principle among our elected officials.

J.D. earned his BA in International Business and French at Ohio Wesleyan University, his MEd in Foreign Language Education at Wright State University, and his MA in French at Ohio State University. He has completed his PhD coursework at Ohio State University. His time at OSU is one that shaped his desire to serve in politics. Facing an imposing liberal/progressive agenda in academia, he promised himself that he would devote his free time to fighting it. He left his PhD program to become an advocate for conservative principles, family values, and greater accountability for our elected officials. During this fight, he gained experience in the educational and agricultural sectors.

As a Merchandising Manager, J.D. has seen the importance of advocacy in keeping our elected officials honest. He is a trustee on the Miami County Farm Bureau Board, and he recently completed the year-long, elite, AgriPOWER leadership program. He has worked tirelessly to get principled people more involved in the political process, and he has helped various Republicans get elected to positions around the state. J.D. is asking for your support as he works to serve Miami and Darke Counties as a representative to Ohio’s 80th House district.



Meet our always-growing team!


Ben Graham, Campaign Manager

Ben is a work horse. In addition to interning in Congressional and State Senate offices, he knocked on thousands of doors for the Portman campaign–all while working full-time on his studies. We’re excited to have Ben’s experience, enthusiasm, and drive as a part of our team!

Boaz Akins

Boaz (or Bo, as we call him) was the head of the Trump field team in Miami County. He managed the RNC office in Miami County during the Presidential election, and he works tirelessly at what he does. Because of his hard work, Trump won the county with a considerable margin, which helped contribute to Hillary’s overall defeat in Ohio! We’re glad to have Bo with us, and we’re looking forward to producing a similar result.

Bethany Groves, Scheduler/Event Planner

If you know Bethany, you know how much she takes on in her life. How well she manages that is one reason we have her helping us schedule and setting up our events! We’re fortunate to have her as a part of our team, and if you would like to set up a meeting or event with the campaign, we’ll be sure to point you her way.
