YOUNGSTOWN – Today, the Joe Schiavoni For Governor campaign released a new ad depicting Joe boxing at his hometown gym. The ad is a visual nod to Joe’s career, successfully fighting for working families and always willing to go an extra round to get the job done.
“Our next governor needs a track record of fighting for working families on the ground in Ohio. That’s where I’ve been the past nine years – going into communities, asking what they need, and bringing those voices to the Statehouse,” said Senator Schiavoni. “We can’t keep repeating the same mistakes, rolling out the same reused candidates, and expecting a different result. It’s time for a new generation of leadership to move Ohio forward.”
As an attorney for injured workers, Joe took his passion for workers’ rights with him to the Statehouse. He led the Senate Democrats’ opposition to SB 5, the governor’s anti-labor bill. Joe then took the SB 5 fight to local communities to help build the citizen movement that overturned the law. Joe has also successfully fought for several major charter school reforms, and he is leading the charge to hold for-profit charters, like ECOT, accountable.
Joe’s motto has always been, “work first. Fight when you have to.” And that’s how he operates as senator. Joe has successfully negotiated across the aisle on issues that shouldn’t be political. His bill to expand reliable internet access throughout the state has Republican joint sponsors in both the House and Senate.
“When I entered the Statehouse nine years ago, I had no political experience. I just knew I wanted to help families in my community, and this was the way to do it,” said Senator Schiavoni. “This campaign is built on hard work, real people, and a belief that Ohio can build itself back up. We’re fighting to give every Ohioan a fair shot.”
