Fighting for our Future

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

It is my honor to represent you in the Ohio House of Representatives.

As your Representative, I work every day on issues that affect you, your family and our community. That’s why I’m proud to serve as the highest-ranking Democrat on the Criminal Justice Committee, where I’ve spearheaded the fight to expand intervention instead of incarceration for addicted  non-violent offenders, helped secure funding to bring more Public Defenders to Ohio, and been one of loudest voices in the legislature for common sense gun safety measures.

I was at the forefront to secure historic funding for Public Transit, which ensures access to employment opportunities, healthcare  and nutrition options, and reduces traffic and pollution. I also continue to fight for a Clean Energy economy that creates jobs, saves consumers money and reduces our carbon footprint.

All of that means that together, we haven’t just defended our American values of freedom, fairness and diversity, but we’ve brought the fight for good jobs, great schools and affordable healthcare to the steps of the Ohio Statehouse.

My goal is to make Ohio and our Columbus community the best place to live, work and raise a family. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve.”

Legislator of the Year award from OPTA

I am extremely proud and humble to receive the Legislator of the Year award from the Ohio Public Transit Association (OPTA). 

Public transportation is about providing access to healthcare, nutrition and good jobs. It’s about helping those with disabilities to fully integrate into society, and it’s about fighting climate change by reducing our carbon footprint. 

Thanks to Carrie Woody, OPTA President and Laura Koprowski, OPTA Executive Director and the entire association for this honor!
