Democrat candidate for Ohio Secretary of State, Kathleen Clyde, will join the Scioto County Democratic Party at the Scioto County Fair on Wednesday, Aug. 8, from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
Currently serving as the State Representative from the 75th House District since 2011, Kathleen Clyde grew up in the small town of Garrettsville, Ohio, surrounded by hard-working people. Since then, she has been a champion for Ohio’s working families and women.
She has organized opposition to the anti-worker bill, SB 5, and stood up for steelworkers and low wage AFSCME workers in her district. She has also secured changes to the law and resources to help small businesses and economic development in her district. She is the lead sponsor of Ohio’s Equal Pay Act. And in 2013, she held hearings across the state on the unprecedented attacks on women’s reproductive healthcare in Ohio’s budget bills. She has also been a dedicated defender of voters and voting rights, and has introduced legislation for automatic voting registration that will ensure Ohioans are added to the rolls when they do everyday things like get a driver’s license, seek disability services, or simply turn 18.
She has been endorsed by 26 labor organizations, including the Ohio AFL-CIO, Cincinnati Building and Construction Trades, Cleveland Building and Construction Trades, AFSCME Council 8, United Steelworkers District 1, IBEW Local 38, and more. A complete list of her endorsements is available on her website at www.kathleenclyde.com.
The Scioto County Democratic Party endorsed Clyde for Ohio Secretary of State during its monthly meeting in July, and she will join the party to meet local residents at the Scioto County Fair on Wednesday, Aug. 8, from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
The Scioto County Democratic Party’s Central Committee meets on the fourth Thursday of each month, at 7 p.m., in the Vern Riffe Community Center, in New Boston.
