He is a former Park District Director for Holmes County, as well as County Recreation Director. Hall is a past president[1] of the Ohio Mid-Eastern Governments Association (OMEGA), the Family and Children First Council, and the Multi-County Juvenile Detention Board.

Ohio House of Representatives[edit]

When incumbent Bob Gibbs decided to run for the Ohio Senate, Hall sought to replace him. Unopposed in the primary, Hall went on to face Democrat Luke Brewer in the general election.[2] He went on to defeat Brewer with 60.88% of the votes.[3]

In 2010, he won reelection with 68.8%[4] of the vote. For his second term, Speaker of the House William G. Batchelder named Hall as Chairman of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. Hall was also appointed to the Finance Committee, the Finance Subcommittee on Agriculture and Natural Resources, the Local Government Committee. Additionally, although initially appointed to the Small Business and Economic Development Committee, he was re-appointed to the Public Utilities Committee for the duration of the 129th General Assembly.

In 2012, he won reelection with 60.46%[5] of the vote. Due to Ohio's decennial redistricting and reapportionment, Hall was elected the 70th District. In the 130th General Assembly, Speaker of the House William G. Batchelder reappointed him Chairman[6] of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. Hall was also appointed to the Finance Committee, Finance Subcommittee on Agriculture and Development, and the newly created Manufacturing and Workforce Development Committee.[7]

As Chairman of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee, Hall serves as a Legislative member of the Emergency Response Commission, the Environmental Education Council, and the Ohio Expositions Commission.
