When the federal government orchestrated the bankruptcy of General Motors causing Jim Renacci to lose his Chevrolet dealership, he made the decision to run for office.  In 2011 he became Congressman Renacci.  His presentation will give an overview and background of a dysfunctional government, a system that isn’t working, congressmen unable or unwilling to understand the budgeting process, and the long-term financial consequences of their actions.

This class is an opportunity to learn firsthand from Congressman Renacci as he enlightens us on the reality of being in congress as well as the fiscal state of the nation, failure of leadership, the role of money, disrupting the Political Elite, committees, and the numbers, politics, as usual, bipartisanship is not a dirty word and, most importantly the solutions and moving forward.  Congressman Renacci’s recently released book “The GOP’s Lost Decade” covers these topics and more, which he will be signing and selling after the class.


Congressman Jim Renacci earned a degree in business administration and became a Certified Public Accountant and financial advisor.  A successful businessman for more than 30 years he has been involved with real estate, automobile dealerships, nursing homes, and other businesses.   Renacci is a former city council president and two-term Mayor of Wadsworth, Ohio.

He served as the U.S. Representative for Ohio’s 16th congressional district from 2011 to 2019.  In 2011 he joined a wave of 107 newly elected congressmen, mostly Republications, who vowed to change the way Washington works.  Almost from the day he arrived at the Capitol, Renacci encountered pervasive and entrenched dysfunction, perpetuated by both parties, and over the next eight years in office, he became increasingly frustrated by the inability of Congress to get anything done.  Ten years after Renacci and his fellow lawmakers started down a path to change our government, many have left in frustration, and the situation in Washington has only gotten worse.

Renacci was ranked the 46th most bipartisan member of the U.S. House of Representatives during the 114th United States Congress (and the third most bipartisan member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Ohio).
