TIFFIN, OH — Rachel Crooks, the Democratic candidate for the Ohio House of Representatives who is challenging Bill Reineke in the November election, announced today her campaign’s summer tour to visit at least twenty towns in the 88th house district, which includes Sandusky and Seneca counties.
“It’s incredibly important to me that I meet as many people in the district to hear the issues of importance to them and how I can better serve them as their future state representative,” Crooks states.
The tour will include visits for events, canvassing, and meetings with constituents. The tour has plans to visit the following towns: Attica, Bascom, Bellevue, Bettsville, Bloomville, Burgoon, Clyde, Fort Seneca, Fostoria, Fremont, Gibsonburg, Green Springs, Helena, Kansas, Lindsey, Melmore, New Riegel, Old Fort, Republic, Tiffin, and Woodville.
The tour started in Tiffin with multiple weekends of canvassing, and the area’s first Pride event was held on Saturday, June 30th at Hedges-Boyer Park. Over 60 people were in attendance, and the event welcomed the LGBTQ community as well as allies. In addition to candidate Crooks, the Democratic candidate for Ohio’s 4th Congressional District, Janet Garrett, was also in attendance.
Crooks states, “Pride was such a wonderful way to kick off our campaign tour and begin to build a supportive LGBTQ community in our area. Our current elected officials unfortunately have not made this a priority, but I was happy to organize this long overdue event, and I hope to see it grow each year as an annual celebration in June for Pride Month.
The Rachel Crooks for Ohio campaign will continue to post updates on its Facebook page so that interested constituents can keep current on future summer tour events.
