Hi there –

If we haven’t had a chance to meet yet, I’d like to introduce myself. I’m Aaron Baer, the new President of Citizens for Community Values.

A little about my background:

  • I’m a Warren, Ohio native (Go WGH Raiders!)
  • I’m an Ohio University graduate (Go Bobcats!)
  • For the last 7 years, I’ve lived in Phoenix, Arizona (Go away 120 degree summer heat!)
  • Most of that time, I worked at the Arizona Family Policy Council, Center for Arizona Policy.
  • Most recently, I worked in Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s executive office.

My wife Maria and I now live in Columbus with our baby girl Naomi (here’s a picture of us after we dedicated Naomi at our church in Phoenix in May).

My friend, I am passionate about building up families, protecting religious freedom, defending life, and most importantly, being a witness to the Gospel. I also feel a strong call to rallying the next generation to our cause.

Lord willing, we’ll do all of this and more for our state and nation. However, as Phil Burress told me time and time again before he retired, this work has never been accomplished through CCV standing alone. There have always been countless families from across the state, standing with us, praying for us, and supporting us financially.

So please, continue to stand along side us as we strive to make Ohio a better place for families. Moreover, pray for us – we have big plans for the future of CCV, to grow this important work.

I also want to ask you to donate today. This election left a lot to be desired, but you and I know there’s a lot of opportunities now for us to make some real progress. CCV is well positioned to make an impact, but we need your help to do this.

Thank you for standing with us in the past, and being with us for the future.

President, Citizens for Community Values
