Betty Sutton Power Point

  1. 1. “ Trust is a fragile thing. It is difficult to win, but easy to lose. It finds its hold on promises kept and honesty sustained and unquestionable integrity. As the representative from the thirteenth district of Ohio, I am honored to rise on this historic day to speak for the first time on the floor of the people's house.” -Congresswoman Betty Sutton
  2. 2. Serving constituents is my highest priority. All citizens deserve full access to all government programs and the benefits to which they are entitled. I offer this information as a guide to the types of services and assistance available to my constituents of the 13 th district. WELCOME
  3. 3. B etty began her public service career during law school when she ran for an at-large Barberton City Council seat, beating out the incumbent. Just over a year later, she ran for a seat on the Summit County Council and was elected as a member at-large. In her second year on the council, Betty was elected by her fellow council members as Vice President of the council. In 1993, she won a difficult race for the Ohio House of Representatives. There, Betty served on the Commerce and Labor Committee and fought against an attack on workers compensation benefits in a Republican controlled legislature. After serving the people for eight years, term-limits prevented her from seeking reelection. She continued her advocacy in the private sector as a labor lawyer with the firm of Faulkner, Muskovitz & Phillips LLP. Her work with teachers, nurses and other workers, led her to run for the open U.S. Congressional seat for the 13th District in 2006. Since her election, she has been elected as president of her freshman class and has continued to champion the rights of her constituents. ABOUT BETTY
