As our State Representative, Brigid Kelly will fight for more opportunities by focusing on:
STRONG LOCAL SCHOOLS
Brigid Kelly knows that the path of success is often paved by a strong education. As Republicans strip money from local public education and give taxpayer money to unaccountable for-profit schools, Ohio’s best teachers leave our state in search of better jobs. Brigid knows the way we invest in future generations is through good local public schools. As your State Representative, Brigid will work to ensure Ohio’s children have access to quality, affordable education from preschool through their higher education years.
HOLDING CORPORATIONS ACCOUNTABLE
Far too often, Ohio’s citizens are taken advantage of by large corporations that make promises but fail to follow through. As your State Representative, Brigid will hold corporations accountable by demanding they create the Ohio jobs they promise. If these companies fail to hold up their end of the bargain, Brigid would require them to reimburse taxpayers.
THE NEEDS OF HARDWORKING OHIOANS
Brigid Kelly understands that supporting a family in Ohio is getting harder, not easier. For over a decade, Brigid has worked for United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) Local 75; she has spent her career working to improve the lives of all hardworking men and women. In the Ohio Statehouse, Brigid will fight to ensure businesses that receive state contracts provide women equal pay for equal work. As our State Representative, Brigid will lead the fight for paid leave so that families caring for a new child or critically ill parent don’t have to make the tough choice of caring for family members or keeping their jobs.
A graduate of Xavier and UC, Brigid Kelly knows the cost of college is becoming out of reach for many families. In the Ohio Statehouse, Brigid will crack down on private, for-profit lenders by requiring them to disclose the true cost of these loans to students and families before lending.
SAFE AND HEALTHY NEIGHBORHOODS
Born and raised in the district, Brigid Kelly knows that it’s important to feel safe and take pride in our community. As our next State Representative, Brigid will work to ensure that businesses moving into our neighborhoods build in a way that is responsive to concerns about workers, the environment, and the community. Brigid also knows that it’s vital for families to feel safe in the neighborhoods where they live, work, and play. She’ll work to develop greater cooperation between local law enforcement and state resources to promote safer neighborhoods for all residents.
