A former Cuyahoga County Republican Party leader and the chief of staff for the former speaker of the Ohio House have joined the state’s biggest anti-abortion rights lobby.
Ohio Right to Life announced it was bringing three new members on to its board of directors: Attorney Philip Williamson, Sheila Williamowski Boehner, and Emily Moreno Miller.
Miller is married to Ohio GOP Congressman and former Trump advisor Max Miller, and the daughter of Bernie Moreno, currently running for the Republican nomination in the 2024 U.S. Senate race against Democratic Ohio U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown.
She was the executive chairman of the Cuyahoga County Republican Party until she left abruptly in April after three months on the job.
Ohio Right to Life cited Williamson’s legal support for the overturning of nationwide abortion legalization in Dobbs v. Jackson as part of his work in the pro-life space. Williamson, as part of the law firm Taft, Stettinius & Hollister, LLP., wrote a “friends of the court” brief supporting overturning abortion rights.
Boehner was most recently the deputy chief of staff and executive counsel for then-Ohio House Speaker Bob Cupp, and has worked for State Treasurer Robert Sprague and Secretary of State Frank LaRose. She now works for the firm of Kegler, Brown, Hill and Ritter.
