I am Kent Smith, Democrat, candidate for the 8th Ohio House of Representatives seat. Thank you for visiting my web site.

I am committed to fighting for the citizens of the 8th House District. I believe the current priorities of State Government are not working for the residents of the 8th District or Ohio’s middle class. I will work to expand economic opportunities for all Ohioans while fighting to protect voter’s rights, women’s rights and worker’s rights. I believe increased investment in education is critical to Ohio’s future and I will work to expand Medicaid in Ohio.

As a result of the 2010 Census, the boundaries of the 8th Ohio House District was re-drawn. The communities inside the 8th Ohio House District are now: Beachwood, East Cleveland, Euclid, Richmond Heights, South Euclid, Woodmere and 6 precincts of Ward 10 in Cleveland that connect East Cleveland to Euclid.

Please consider me for your vote on May 6, 2014. Together we can change Ohio.
