State Representative, District 11
Central Ohio, State Legislature
Dr. Anita Somani is a leader in the Columbus OBGYN community, whose health care expertise will bring a much needed perspective to the Statehouse. Dr. Somani is no stranger to public policy, and as a trusted member of the community, she has been asked to lend her expertise to the legislature many times, testifying on issues that affect everyday Ohioans. As a physician, she knows that access to health care is essential to the well-being of our State, and is also a founding member of the Physicians Action Network. Dr. Somani is a healthcare professional dedicated to her community and providing women of all ages with comprehensive and individualized care. Throughout her career, she has conducted her work with a commitment to helping women live in healthy, safe, and prosperous communities. She is a passionate advocate for quality healthcare, a strong economy that lifts all, as well as public education. She believes that preparing our children for the future means providing quality education to every Ohioan regardless of socioeconomic status. The Matriots know that Ohio would deeply benefit from Dr. Somani’s expertise and passion for serving people.
I have been worried that our state has gone down the wrong path in regards to health care and increasing maternal and infant mortality, more abortion restrictions, and marginalizing communities. These laws hurt our economy by affecting a woman’s ability to work and limiting her economic potential.
