ALLISON RUSSO ENDORSED BY EMILY’S LIST, NATION’S LARGEST RESOURCE FOR WOMEN IN POLITICS, ON THE BASIS OF THE STRENGTH OF HER CAMPAIGN AND PROGRESSIVE VALUES
Allison Russo’s campaign for State Representative in Ohio’s 24th District has been endorsed by EMILY’s List! “This organization shares my vision of government that reflects the people it serves and elected leaders who genuinely and enthusiastically fight for greater opportunity and better lives for the people they represent,” Allison Russo shared. “I am honored to have their support.”
EMILY’s List works for larger leadership roles for women in federal and state legislative bodies and executive seats so that our families can benefit from the open-minded, productive contributions that women have consistently made in office.
“Allison Russo has spent nearly two decades working with policymakers to bring affordable and accessible health care to seniors, veterans, and families across Ohio and the nation. Her work doesn’t stop there —Allison helps lead a small business, serves on the Women’s Leadership Council of the United Way, and founded the Girls Who Lead after-school program, empowering the next generation of leaders,” said Geri Prado, senior director of state and local campaigns at EMILY’s List. “EMILY’s List is proud to support her campaign for Ohio Statehouse.”
Allison Russo is running for State Representative with the understanding that when women and families have the resources and rights they need to thrive, entire communities benefit. 51 percent of Ohio’s residents are women, but you’d never know that looking at the General Assembly’s roster. Both major parties talk up equity between women and men, but the Statehouse has yet to see it. Of the Ohio General Assembly’s 132 members, only 22 percent are women.
