State Rep. Kathleen Clyde of Kent announced Monday she is seeking a third term in the Ohio House of Representatives and has declared her candidacy for the 75th Ohio House District in Portage County.
"I am running for state representative so that I can continue the job I started when the people of Portage County elected me to the Statehouse four years ago," Clyde said. "Nothing is more important to me than being a strong voice for Portage County residents and doing everything I can to find the common sense solutions that will help improve our economy, strengthen our schools, and preserve our future."
First elected in 2010, Clyde serves on the Finance & Appropriations Committee, the Policy & Legislative Oversight Committee, and is the Ranking Minority Member of the State & Local Government Committee. She is also a member of the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission.
Clyde will again be running in the 75th Ohio House District, which includes Streetsboro, Kent, Ravenna and all of southern Portage County.
