Class of 2019 Endorsed Candidate: Shanette Strickland
If elected Shanette will be the first African American woman elected in Reynoldsburg. Shanette plans to bring a different perspective to the council when addressing safety; by building a relationship with our law enforcement, economic development; re-purposing existing commercial space and infrastructure; focusing on parks, roads, and sidewalks.
Running for office for the first time, her experiences within her community provides her with a better understanding of the needs of Reynoldsburg. Shanette serves as treasurer of the Reynoldsburg Football Parent Association, volunteer for the annual Taste of Reynoldsburg, and on the planning committee of the Tomato Festival. As an IT Project Manager I’ve learned to collaborate, lead and get results that will serve her community well once elected.
In 2020 Shanette will begin her work as a Reynoldsburg City Council Member, Ward 1.
