Republican State Representative George Lang is serving his first term in the Ohio House of Representatives after being appointed in September 2017. He represents the 52nd House District, which includes West Chester Township, Liberty Township, Fairfield Township and part of Sharonville in Butler County.
George Lang believes in the American Dream because he is living the American Dream.
Born the grandson of a Cuban immigrant who spent his early years in foster care taught George the rewards and value of hard work and perseverance.
Lang graduated from Southeast Missouri State University in 1985 with a major in Communications and a double minor in Marketing and Speech.
George Lang started his first business in his early teens by setting up a lawn mowing business and getting other kids in his neighborhood to join him. Following working for eight years in various sales and managerial positions at Procter & Gamble, he left to start his own business, the Lang Agency Inc., one of several companies that he currently owns today. In 2003, after serving seven years on the West Chester Board of Zoning Appeals, West Chester Township was in desperate need of stable leadership. George ran for West Chester Township Trustee against an entrenched incumbent. After a fierce race, George became West Chester Township Trustee.
Under George’s watch, West Chester was named One of America’s Best Places to Live multiple times by Money magazine. He ushered West Chester through the Great Recession by keeping a laser focus on the core competencies of the township – providing only the services that local governments should.
West Chester maintained a high level of quality service as the State of Ohio made cuts to the Local Government Fund that provided funds to townships and cities that they relied on. Despite the difficult circumstances, West Chester was a leader in the county and the region for new jobs and wage growth.
Now George Lang serves as our State Representative.
George Lang has made it a priority in his public service to create an environment where business and commerce can thrive. Areas where good jobs and businesses are successful are areas where families, schools, and public services are successful.
