Issues

Great Lakes


Having grown up on the shores of Lake Erie, I consider it an honor to advocate for the Great Lakes in Congress. The Lakes are an irreplaceable resource and invaluable economic driver. They constitute the largest system of surface freshwater on Earth, provide drinking water for an estimated 48 million people, and generate more than 1.5 million jobs and $60 billion in wages annually. In 2016, I authored landmark legislation to authorize the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), which provides funding to federal agencies, the Great Lakes states, local communities, and businesses to restore the Great Lakes ecosystem and the economic health of the Great Lakes region. This important bill was signed into law by President Obama in 2016. In 2021, President Trump signed my subsequent legislation to reauthorize GLRI into law. As a Co-Chair of the House Great Lakes Task Force, I will continue working across the aisle to secure the necessary investments to treat the Great Lakes as the national treasure they are.

Public Safety


As a former prosecutor, the safety and wellbeing of Northeast Ohio’s communities remain one of my top priorities. I’m proud to have co-founded the Bipartisan Task Force to End Sexual Violence in the 115th Congress and am a staunch supporter of our first responders and law enforcement officers. Our brave men and women in blue selflessly serve our communities with courage, dedication, and strength. Having worked alongside many of these heroes during my time as Geauga County Prosecutor, I know all too well the danger they willingly face each and every day to protect us and our families.

Economy & Jobs


I have always believed in a commonsense approach to government that helps both employers and their workers succeed. As a member of the Buy American Caucus, I remain committed to fighting for policies in Congress that provide more opportunities for Ohio small businesses and ensure they can compete in our increasingly global economy. Ohio has long been a national leader in innovation and manufacturing, both of which will be the key to rebuilding our economy. As we work to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, my focus remains on reducing inflation by supporting fiscally responsible policies, cutting red tape, spurring economic growth, creating good-paying jobs, and supporting jobs-training programs to give workers career-ready skills for the jobs of today and those that will exist in the future.

"Congressman Joyce’s office helped me resolve a 2-year issue with the VA. They were responsive, professional, and genuinely wanted to help. I highly recommend reaching out if you’re struggling with a government organization and aren’t able to make progress."

“I want to thank your Mentor office for tracking down my Passport. It seems like it was lost in the system, but Ryan tracked it down and had it sent UPS to me overnight. He updated me with emails and phone calls on the progress. Outstanding job.”

"I had a relative pass away in Canada and was able to attend the funeral because of your staff’s efforts. Ryan went above and beyond to secure my passport in time. My sincere thanks to you and Ryan for his kindness & help during a stressful, difficult time."
