Lepore-Hagan receives Democratic endorsement for Ohio House of Representatives 58th district

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Michele Lepore-Hagan easily won the endorsement for the state seat her husband currently holds.

Lepore-Hagan won that endorsement over Michael E. O'Hara, Cynthia McWilson,  and Youngstown Councilwoman Janet Tarpley. We talked with Hagan about why she wants to represent the region in the state House of Representatives.

"I stand for working families, children, and women's issues," she said. "I want to protect our environment, to make sure we are committed to attracting high tech jobs. We need to commit to public education at every level." 

Lepore-Hagan was congratulated with a hug and kiss by her husband Bob Hagan who currently represents the 58th District. Michele says she will begin campaigning door to door to find out what people want.
