HURON, OH: Today, Ohio State Senator Theresa Gavarone officially announced her candidacy for Ohio’s 9th Congressional District.
The district contains all or part of the following counties: Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Henry, Lucas, Ottawa, Sandusky, Williams and Wood.
“After a lot thought and encouragement from my family and countless constituents, I have decided to seek the Republican nomination for Ohio’s 9th Congressional District,” Gavarone said. “For the past four decades, Marcy Kaptur has occupied this seat in Congress, but has delivered nothing except runaway inflation driven by unprecedented government spending. Northwest and Northern Ohio families need a representative who works for them, not for Nancy Pelosi and the radical left. I am running for Congress to deliver real, conservative results for families across the 9th District.”
Gavarone is currently the State Senator for Ohio’s 2nd District which includes all or part of Erie, Fulton, Lucas, Ottawa and Wood Counties. Prior to her service in the Senate, Senator Gavarone served as State Representative in the Ohio House of Representatives for the 3rd District and as a Bowling Green City Councilwoman.
“During my time in elected office, we cut income taxes, balanced Ohio’s budget, expanded legal gun rights, protected life, and much more,” Gavarone said. “During her time in elected office, Marcy Kaptur consistently stood with Nancy Pelosi over the interests of her district. Enough is enough.”
Gavarone has been a resident of Northern Ohio her entire adult life; she earned her undergraduate degree from Bowling Green State University and her law degree from the University of Toledo. She has been an attorney for over 25 years and co-owns a restaurant with her husband, Jim, with whom she has raised three children.
“This campaign isn’t about me— it’s about the people of Northwest and Northern Ohio,” she said. “Whether it is trying to shut down Line 5, raising taxes, forcing government mandates down our throats, or increasing inflation, Joe Biden, Marcy Kaptur, Nancy Pelosi and the far-left have hurt our families. We need a fighter to represent our area in Congress, and that is what I am here to do.”
The primary election will be held on May 3, 2022.
