Ohio House of Representatives[edit]

With incumbent Representative Tom Brinkman unable to run due to term limits, Stautberg and two others sought to replace him. In the primary, Stautberg was narrowly victorious, winning 35% of the electorate.[1] He faced Democrat Jeff Sinnard in the general election, and won by about 11,000 votes.[2] He won reelection in 2010.

For the 129th General Assembly, Speaker of the House William G. Batchelder named Stautberg as a member of the Republican majority caucus' Policy Committee.[3] He also served on the Ways and Means Committee; and on the committees of Public Utilities (as Chairman); and Financial Institutions, Housing, and Urban Development. He also serves on the Hamilton County Transportation Improvement District Board of Trustees; and the Ohio Arts Council.

Stautberg won a third term in 2012 over Democrat Nathan Wissman with 67.07% of the vote. In 2014, Stautberg lost the Republican re-nomination to his predecessor, Tom Brinkman.

State Appellate Judge[edit]

In 2015, Stautberg was named by Gov. John Kasich to fill a vacancy on the Ohio 1st District Court of Appeals.[4]
