A message from Sharon:
“I am very excited to start this journey to strengthen our future. During my time as a resident and business owner in Avon, N. Ridgeville, Lorain, Amherst, Elyria, Vermilion and surrounding communities I have yearned for representatives that would be more proactive towards solving local concerns.
“We have lived, worked, and raised a family throughout this District. I understand our needs and have the experience that will equip me to attract greater investment and growth to ensure sustained security for our friends, families, and neighbors.
“Sweda for Ohio will take the issues discussed at hundreds of kitchen tables throughout my life’s work to Columbus and fight tirelessly to bring back real solutions for our residents. I will pressure our legislature to look towards home and focus on bringing positive change to all Ohioans’ daily lives. I look forward to meeting people from across our district to understand their priorities.
“I will always listen to your concerns so that I can be a better voice for our district and welcome all constituents to join our campaign to build strength for our future!”
