Scott R. Nein of Middletown, Ohio, is an American politician of the Republican party, who formerly served in the Ohio General Assembly.

Life and career[edit]

A graduate of Bowling Green State University, Nein established a career in insurance before taking a dive into politics. He began public service by serving on the Middletown, Ohio School Board from 1987 until his election to the Ohio House in 1990.

Nein was encouraged by John Boehner to run for the Ohio House of Representatives to succeed him in 1990.[1] He did so, and ended up winning the seat. He won reelection in 1992, and again in 1994. By his third term Nein was serving as majority floor leader of the House.

Ohio Senate[edit]

When Senator Barry Levey resigned from the Ohio Senate in 1995, Nein was mentioned as a potential replacement, and ultimately was appointed to do so. He resigned his seat in the House, and took the seat in the Senate in the same day. He went on to win election to the seat in 1996 for a full term.[2] He again won election in 2000.

By 2004, term limits were forcing Nein out of office, and he was succeeded in 2005 by Gary Cates. Following his time in elected office, Nein was made CEO of the Ohio Association of Insurance Agents/Independent Insurance Agents of Ohio, where he is serving today.[3]

Senator Nein has three sons, Jason, Beckett & Brody. He also has a daughter Courtney.
