Rep. Mike Carey

Congressman Mike Carey was sworn in as a member of the United States House of Representatives on November 4, 2021, and represents Ohio’s 15th Congressional District. The district is comprised of parts of Clark, Fayette, Franklin, Miami, and Shelby counties as well as all of Madison County. He currently serves on the House Ways and Means Committee and the Committee on House Administration.

Mike was raised in the small town of Sabina, Ohio. On the family farm, he was instilled with values that continue to guide him today – hard work, community, and freedom. Following his graduation from East Clinton High School, he followed his family tradition of service, earning an ROTC scholarship, attending the Marion Military Institute, and serving as an officer in the military. During this time, he also earned his bachelor’s degree from the Ohio State University.

As a professional, Mike became an executive for one of the nation’s largest privately owned energy companies, headquartered in Ohio. For more than 20 years, he fought to protect American jobs by fighting back against the same radical energy policies being pushed today by the Democrats. As an advocate for coal miners and American energy independence, he also worked to save miners’ pension benefits and reverse overreaching government regulations while valuing the environment.
