Why I'm Running

"As a mom, a wife, and a working professional, I never thought I’d be interested in running for a political office. But after the 2016 election cycle, that all changed. In 2016, I saw gerrymandered districts and special interest money profoundly influence election results. I witnessed the vast majority of candidates put their own private interests ahead of public wellbeing. And I watched so many of our elected officials lose sight of what it means to be a representative of the people and sideline the values of their communities. I’m running for Ohio Senate because this isn’t how government should work and we can do better. We must do better. It’s time to put aside partisan politics and work together to strengthen our schools, improve healthcare and support small businesses. I hope you’ll join me in this fight." - Louise Valentine
