LORAIN – Dan Ramos’ candidacy for State Representative in the 56th District was validated today in the Lorain County Board of Elections. He was challenged by a political opponent in the primary, who presented no evidence to support his case.
“It goes to show that my opponent, even after years of being director of the Board of Elections, lacks a basic understanding of Ohio’s elections laws and the Ohio Constitution” said Ramos. “This proves that we need our new State Representative to have real experience and understanding of Ohio’s laws and legislative processes” continued Ramos. “I have years of legislative experience in the Ohio House of Representatives, and can start working on day one.”
“I am happy to put this baseless accusation behind me. I will continue to do what I have been doing all along, talking to real people about real issues that affect their lives such as creating new, good paying jobs, renovating our neighborhoods and downtowns, and improving the quality of education” added Ramos.
Ramos is a Lorain native, a graduate of Lorain City Schools and The Ohio State University. He has served as Senior Policy Analyst to House Speaker Armond Budish and Legislative Aide to Representative Koziura.
The 56th District includes the cities of Lorain, Oberlin, Sheffield Lake, and South Amherst, as well as all of Amherst Township, New Russia Township, and Sheffield Township. The District also includes parts of Elyria, Amherst, Carlisle Township, and Elyria Township.
