From Lauren McNally Speech
"Good evening and thank you for coming to support our cause, I am Lauren McNally.
As most of you know, I’ve spent the last six years serving as the 5th ward councilwoman for the City of Youngstown. During that time, I’ve accomplished a lot for the residents of my ward, improving their quality of life, as well as supporting programs and projects that have impacted the city as a whole.
I’ve also made strong, quality relationships with my colleagues, for whom I have the utmost respect, worked with two administrations and countless community leaders, all of whom have played a significant role in changing the face of Youngstown over the last decade.
I want to take what I’ve learned and what I’ve accomplished during my time in the city and help elevate the whole region.
As your State Representative in Columbus, I will work to build a coalition of bipartisan representatives from around Ohio to create common sense legislation that works for all of our families.
I don’t want to leave here tonight without acknowledging those who came before me, sought this exact position, and served the Mahoning Valley well.
They included former representatives Tom Gilmartin, Bob Hagan, and Sylvester Patton, as well as our current representative, Michelle Lepore-Hagan.
They have fought hard for this valley over the years and I hope to continue to carry on that fight to remind Columbus that the Mahoning Valley is an important and vital part of the state of Ohio."
