Career

Faber is the principal partner with Faber and Associates in Celina, a law firm specializing in civil litigation and mediation, helping courts and parties resolve matters without trial. He earned his Juris Doctorate from The Ohio State University in 1991.

With incumbent Jim Buchy unable to run for another term in the House, Faber sought to replace him. He faced a primary race with fellow Republican Terry Haworth, and won by about 1,300 votes.[1] He defeated Democrat Bill Sell in the general election by about 14,000 votes.[2] He won reelection in 2002, 2004, and 2006.

Ohio Senate

With Jim Jordan vacating the seat after winning a seat in Congress, Faber was one of seven who sought to replace him, along with Derrick Seaver, Gene Krebs, Robert J. Luckey III, Toni Slusser, Vincent Foulk and Kreg Allison. Faber won the support of Senate Republicans, and took the seat in the Senate in February 2007. Soon after the appointment, Senate President Bill Harris appointed Faber to the Senate Finance and Financial Institutions Committee.

For the 128th General Assembly, Faber served as Senate majority floor leader, and in the 129th General Assembly, he serves as President pro tempore, the second highest post in the Senate.[3] As President pro tempore, Faber is also vice chairman of the Senate Rules and Reference Committee.[4] He also sits on the committees of Agriculture, Environment and Natural Resources; Government Oversight and Reform; Finance; Insurance, Commerce and Labor; and Judiciary.[5][6]
