To those who have supported me, I ask that you give your vote to the candidate fighting for social, economic and environmental justice for all Ohioans.

With the motto:” Progress Together” he will fight for Ohio’s families and support legislations for well-paid jobs and careers, quality public education, affordable healthcare and housing, green energy economy, solutions to opioid crisis, and prosperity through diversity.
District 25 primary race is rated among the top 10 Ohio legislative primaries to watch in the 2020 elections.
With the Ohio Democratic Party primary scheduled for March 17, it is highly anticipated that Dr. Kofi Nsia-Pepra whose campaign has received the most endorsement from various groups including women and the current incumbent will win the primary and the general election slated for November 3.
