CHRISTINA HAGAN ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR CONGRESS
State Representative Christina Hagan declared her candidacy today for Ohio’s 16th congressional district. Hagan made her announcement in a web video sent out to supporters where she pledges to put Ohioans first and to take on the special interest groups control on the establishment in Washington.
“Public service is my passion in life. I will continue to fight for Ohio families by fostering a stronger environment for job creation and economic growth. I will demand accountability from our government, eliminate wasteful spending and I will continue my work to build a brighter future for our children,” said Hagan.
Hagan, the youngest female ever to serve in the Ohio General Assembly, is currently serving her third official term in the Ohio House of Representatives. In Columbus, she is a leading voice for a new generation of leaders and was named in Forbes “30 under 30” for Law and Policy in 2016.
“Washington needs a new generation of leaders who recognize that the system is broken. Northeast Ohio deserves a voice in Congress that will stand up to the political bosses of both parties to do what’s right for our families and small businesses,” Hagan said. “That means leading discussions about term limits, our nation’s finances, tax reform and sound energy policy – it’s time to go to work for the American people.”
Appointed to the General Assembly in 2011, Hagan was elected in 2012, and easily re-elected in 2014 and 2016. In 2016, Hagan won her race by 46 points outperforming every federal and state candidate in her district.
“I’m in this race to win,” Hagan continued. “No more career politicians, no more special interests with their hands out, no more backroom deals.”
As a State Representative, Hagan has focused her legislative efforts on restoring Ohio’s reputation as a national economic leader by working to create a better business climate that can sustain a strong private sector job market. She believes that investing in the foundation of Ohio’s economy, business owners, is the key to making Ohio great again.
Representative Hagan has also been a leader in the effort to improve government accountability, promoting responsible use of taxpayer dollars to ensure that Ohioans’ resources are not being misused. She is unapologetically pro-life, pro-family and pro-religious freedom.
Her legislative work has earned her a multitude of endorsements, including the Ohio Farm Bureau, Ohio Society of CPA’s, National Rifle Association, Buckeye Firearms, Ohio Right to Life, Ohio Chamber of Commerce, Ohio Manufacturers Association, and National Federation of Independent Business.
A native of Stark County, being born and raised in Marlboro Township, Christina is still proud to call Stark County home with her husband Adam and their daughter Josie.
