Connie Pillich on Principles & Values
Announced candidacy on route of Cincinnati Women's March
Connie announced her campaign for Governor along the same route she joined with thousands of women on January 21, 2017 as part of the Cincinnati Women's March. Inspired by the energy of that day and determined to not let it fade away, Connie is
dedicated to helping Democrats reclaim our status as patriots because she knows we cannot be afraid to stand up for our values.
As Governor, Connie will take the lessons she learned as a Captain in the U.S. Air Force to provide the progressive and
unflinching leadership Ohioans need to improve our schools, rebuild our infrastructure, and bring back the industry and jobs that can support a family.
The youngest of five, Connie grew up in a working-class neighborhood in the shadow of a steel mill, which closed. Connie put herself through college with an ROTC scholarship, student loans, and part-time work.
