Meet Omar Tarazi
Candidate for Congress
We have lived in central Ohio for 31 years, and Hilliard Ohio has been our home since 2009. My wife and I have brought up our children here. We have raised three Eagle Scouts, and one is serving in the U.S. Navy.
I have over 12 years of experience as an attorney working with businesses and organizations on contracts, litigation, and management issues.
My undergraduate degree is in Business Administration from Franklin University, and I graduated Cum Laude from Dayton Law School with honors in Dispute Resolution.
It was an honor to have served on the Columbus Bar Association Admissions Committee for eight years, and I also served on the Ethics committee for 3 years. In addition, I previously served on the Hilliard Board of Zoning Appeals.
I was elected to the Hilliard City Council in 2019 and continue to serve to the present helping to take our community to the next level as a great place to live and raise a family.
We worked on the transition from the mayor form of government to the current city manager form of government.
We helped lead a culture transformation to a servant leader model focused on giving the best service to our community.
As a city, we have made great progress in balancing the tax base by attracting millions of dollars in business investments into Hilliard. We continue to work on expanding downtown as an entertainment district and upgrading the city’s parks and recreation facilities.
In Hilliard we have proven that Government can make the right decisions for the betterment of the community and the families that live in it.
I want to take that same problem solving dedication to Washington. It can be done. We just need strong leaders to make it happen. I am that leader.
