On to November!

Yesterday, several Matriots-endorsed candidates won their primaries and will advance to the general election on November 5, 2019.

“I thought if I could get a seat at the table, I could make a difference.”

Five of them will advance to the general election in Ohio where they are one step closer to claiming their seat at the tables where policies and legislation are written. They believe in their power to create change and they are fiercely committed to improving the lives of their communities.

They did what women do, they did the work. They rolled up their sleeves and they hit the campaign trail determined to bring new voices to the halls of power.

Join The Matriots as we congratulate these women who will advance to the general election.

Ginger Baylor, for Akron city council member-at-large*
Tara Dyer, for Marion city council, ward 5
Jen Kanagy, for Newark city council member-at-large
Marilyn L. Keith for Akron city council member-at-large*
Linda Omobien, for Akron city council member-at-large
Samantha Turner, for Youngstown city council, ward 3

*In the Akron city council member-at-large race the top three vote getters will advance to the general. Linda Omobien and Jeff Fusco have secured the top two seats. Currently, Ginger Baylor is in third place with 18.5 percent of the vote. Trailing by 45 votes is Marilyn Keith, with about 18.4 percent of the vote, which will likely trigger a recount. One of the two of these Matriots endorsed candidates will advance.

But our work is just beginning.

The Matriots is gearing up to support many more women who are adding their names to ballots across the state from school board to mayor for the general election. These women and their elections matter.

Become a member today and help us elect these women and many more on November 5, 2019. Your investment will make a difference for women candidates in Ohio.

Miranda holds a 56 vote lead over her opponent Jonathan Dever, who on election night Miranda trailed by 303 votes. These results will trigger an automatic recount.
