Thomas Alexander Pottenger (June 9, 1920 – October 24, 2003) was a former member of the Ohio House of Representatives. Originally elected to the House in 1968, Pottenger served two terms before losing the primary election to Richard Finan, much due to an unpopular vote regarding taxes. [2] However, he made a comeback in 1976 by doing the same to fellow Republican John Brandenberg. [3]

The Ohio House of Representatives is the lower house of the Ohio General Assembly, the state legislature of the U.S. state of Ohio; the other house of the bicameral legislature being the Ohio Senate.

Richard H. Finan is a Republican politician who formerly served in the Ohio General Assembly. An attorney, Finan was initially elected to the Ohio House of Representatives in 1972, representing a suburban Cincinnati district. He was easily reelected in 1974 and 1976.

John Brandenberg is a former member of the Ohio General Assembly. Brandenberg was originally elected in 1972, and reelected in 1974. However, in 1976, former Rep. Thomas Pottenger opted to run for Bradenberg's seat, creating a primary for the Republican nomination. As a result, Brandenberg was defeated for a third term, and Pottenger went on to win the general election. Prior and after his stint in the House, Brandenberg practiced private law.

In 1990, Pottenger resigned from his House seat to take a position on the Ohio Employment Relations Board. [4] He would serve on the SERB for a number of years in the Nineties. Pottenger died in 2003.
