Why I Serve

I serve for the Ohio House because state government is failing working families, women, and our most precious resource: our children.

I serve to bring a woman’s perspective to a legislature that is now controlled by a network of conservative good old boys and lobbyists who place their special interests above the best interests of our families.

I serve because I believe that in order to build a brighter future for our kids we must renew our commitment to public education at every level;
• Attract high tech jobs;
• Repair the crumbling infrastructure that handicaps the communities in the 58th District;
• And make sure that the extraction of our state’s massive natural gas resources is done safely and generates good jobs for Ohioans—not just huge profits for billion dollar out-of-state energy companies.

I serve to ensure that women’s voices are not drowned out by extremists when decisions are made about our health.

I serve because I share the values that define the people of this district: respect for family, a belief in the value of hard work, and a tireless drive to make the world a better place for our kids and grandkids.

I serve because I believe public service is a noble and honorable calling.

And I serve to support the people of the 58th District because I believe I can make a real, positive difference in their lives and the lives of all Ohioans.

If you share my concerns and my belief that we can build a brighter future, I invite you to support my work in Columbus.
