We Endorse: Kathleen Clyde

We are thrilled to endorse Kathleen Clyde for Ohio Secretary of State. She is an example of the kind of woman we seek to endorse for political office in Ohio. As Ohio’s Secretary of State, she would be in an influential position to help us achieve our mission of supporting an economy in which women can thrive and prosper.

“I’m honored to be the first endorsed candidate of The Matriots, an inspiring group of women and men who have recognized the need to elect more women leaders and foster an environment in Ohio where women can thrive economically… As Secretary of State I will support this important mission by working to make sure our elections are secure, our districts are fair, every voice is heard and every vote is counted.”
– Kathleen Clyde

We encourage you to learn more about Kathleen and her campaign. She has several events planned throughout the state and we hope to provide further opportunities for you to get to know her and our other endorsed candidates later in the year. But most of all, we encourage you to vote for her in the primary election on May 8, 2018.
