TIFFIN — Businesswoman and conservative activist Melissa Ackison (R-Marysville), a candidate for the 26th district Ohio Senate seat, is bringing her campaign to Tiffin on Sunday for a town hall event.

Ackison’s event will be held at the Tiffin AMVETS Post 48, where doors will open at 4:30 p.m. and the town hall will begin at 5 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public.

Ackison is running in a heated Republican primary against current State Rep. Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) for the 26th district Ohio Senate seat, which covers Sandusky, Seneca, Morrow, Marion, Union, Wyandot, and Crawford counties.

The seat is currently held by Sen. Dave Burke (R-Marysville), who, along with the Ohio Republican Party, has endorsed Reineke for the seat.

Ackison has been endorsed by Ohio Value Voters, Wyandot County Sheriff Michael R. Hetzel, and the Bikers For Trump Ohio chapter.

Ackison, a Marysville small business owner and longtime conservative activist who ran in the 2018 Republican primary for U.S. Senate and came in third behind Jim Renacci and Mike Gibbons, describes herself on her Facebook profile as a “Liberty loving, gun toting, Bible carrying, 80/90’s hip hop enthusiast & habitual line stepper.”

The primary election will take place March 17.
