Debbie Phillips Kicks off Her Campaign for the 92nd

My friend and former boss Debbie Phillips formally announced her candidacy for the 92nd Ohio House seat. This is her second run at the seat; she lost by 865 votes last year. As noted in a previous post, she is now running for a vacant seat as current Rep. Jimmy Stewart is running for the Senate seat Joy Padgett is vacating.

That's House Minority Leader Joyce Beatty at the announcement. Gov. Strickland also contributed the following: "Debbie represents an excellent opportunity to give the 92nd House District back to the people. Restoring balance to the Ohio General Assembly is so important to our work to turnaround Ohio."
