Kate for Congress Announces First Endorsements
CINCINNATI – On Wednesday, Kate Schroder’s campaign for Congress continued its strong campaign launch with an initial round of three endorsements from prominent community leaders and elected officials.
Kate for Congress announced the endorsements of Mayor John Cranley (Cincinnati), Rep. Brigid Kelly (HD-31) and Paul M. Booth.
Mayor John Cranley was elected in 2013. Cincinnati continues to make huge strides towards equality for all. Cincinnati has been recognized as one of the nation’s most immigrant friendly cities and for the fifth year in a row received a perfect score on the Municipal Equality Index by the Human Rights Campaign.
Determined to leave our planet safer for future generations, Mayor Cranley has been a leader fighting climate change. Citywide emissions are down 18%, and the city is close to breaking ground on a 25-megawatt solar array to reduce Cincinnati’s carbon footprint. In 2002, Mayor Cranley co-founded the Ohio Innocence Project, an organization that has exonerated and freed 28 wrongfully convicted people through the use of DNA technology. He has also worked as a real estate developer and attorney.
Rep. Brigid Kelly was born and raised in Norwood. As a former city council member in Norwood and current representative for men and women at the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW), Rep. Kelly fights to build on the experience she’s gained from both her professional and personal life to help improve the lives of everyday Ohioans.
Paul M. Booth is a Cincinnati native served on Cincinnati City Council. He also served as president of the Cincinnati Branch of the NAACP and currently is a member of its executive committee and the National Action Network board. He is also on the board of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and is a committee member with Interact for Health.
“I am so grateful to have the support of these strong leaders,” said Schroder. “Each of them has a legacy of working to find results to the most pressing issues in their communities; an approach I will bring when elected to Congress”
