Nan Baker announces candidacy for state senator
State Representative Nan Baker announced on May 7 her candidacy for state senator representing the 24th House District.
It has been an honor to serve as State Representative at the Ohio House since 2009. Most of my work has been focused on creating the environment to retain, create and bring jobs to Ohio. I have chaired the Economic Development Committee over the last several years.
In this 131st General Assembly, the committee has evolved to the Economic and Workforce Development Committee as we have jobs to fill and we find our Ohioans needing the workforce skills to qualify for those jobs.
I purposely planned this announcement for May 7 to allow time to work on the state biennium budget. It's a huge responsibility that I do not take lightly. My colleagues and I have passed this budget out of the Ohio House and it's now in the hands of the Senate to review.
All of us from the state level to local government have worked together to provide the best services while finding ways to be efficient with taxpayer dollars. Our mayors in the West Shore are trailblazers for others to follow. I am so fortunate to have represented the state under their local leadership.
