Ohio State Senate District 19
Louise Valentine, an Ohio native, is running for the State Senator position in Ohio’s 19th District. Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, she is the daughter of a packaging engineer for Clorox. Louise’s father began his career at Clorox as a member of the International Chemical Workers Union in Cleveland and took night classes to become an engineer.
Louise received her education entirely from Ohio public schools. She attended the public schools in Alyria, graduating high school as her class Salutatorian, before going to Ohio State University. She received both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Ohio State, finishing her education in 2006. During her time at Ohio State, she met her husband, also a student there. The two now live in Genoa Township with their twin sons, Anthony and Nicholas, and their dog, Kaiya.
Louise has worked at L-Brands for the last ten years, the last seven of which she has spent leading a consumer testing program. She was chosen to head this group after completing a company leadership training program. Now, however, Louise intends to apply her impressive work ethic and these leadership skills on behalf of the people of the 19th District.
If elected, Louise is committed to putting aside partisan politics and working for the citizens of Ohio. She is focused on strengthening Ohio’s public school system, improving access to health care, and stimulating the economy on behalf of small business.
