Core first entered government service in Logan County, where he was a member of the county's MR/DD board.[1] In 1999, he was appointed to fill the empty seat for the 83rd District of the House of Representatives, which includes part or all of Logan, Marion, and Union counties; the seat had been vacated by the death of its previous occupant, Tony's father Ed.[2] After finishing the partial term, he was re-elected to four full terms before being term-limited in 2008.[1] His seat was filled by Dave Burke of Marysville.[3]

Core won an uncontested race for Logan County Commissioner in 2008.[4]

During his time in the state legislature, Core used a logo of an apple eaten to the core.


According to Core's website, he and his wife Heather are the parents of a son and two daughters. He is a member of the First United Presbyterian Church of Bellefontaine.[5]
