Jason Ritchie

Running for State Representative
Jason Ritchie is a family man, general contractor and owner of Handi Habitats, a nationwide accessible construction firm. He works with hospitals, nurses, veterans, seniors and those with physical challenges to create accessible homes. Jason’s business, Handi Habitats, grew out of a challenging time. When Jason’s father suffered a stroke that left him paralyzed, Jason left his teaching position to help remodel his father’s home so his father could continue to live independently. Jason soon realized his father’s needs were shared by many others. Over the past 10 years, Handi Habitats has helped thousands of injured workers, veterans, and older Americans to live safely and independently at home.Jason's business experience has taught him that progress must come before partisanship and that we must find common ground to solve our problems. His platform includes supporting seniors, raising the minimum wage, protecting the environment, creating jobs, funding education, passing paid family leave, investing in infrastructure, transparency and coalition-building in government.
