Theresa Gavarone, state representative for Ohio’s 3rd House District, today announced her intent to seek the appointment to the 2nd Ohio Senate District.
The 2nd Senate District seat will be vacated by Senator Randy Gardner who was appointed by Governor Mike DeWine to be the Chancellor of the Ohio Department of Higher Education. The district includes the counties of Wood, Ottawa, Erie, Fulton (part) and Lucas (part).
“With the support of my family and at the urging of so many people across the district, I have decided to pursue the appointment to the 2nd Senate District,” Gavarone said. “We have had a lot of success during my time as State Representative and I look forward to the opportunity to serve a larger population and play a bigger role in ensuring North and Northwest Ohio continues to be an amazing place to live, work and raise a family.”
Gavarone, who was appointed to her seat in 2016, holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Bowling Green State University and a law degree from the University of Toledo College of Law. She previously served on Bowling Green City Council.
In addition to her public service, Gavarone is an attorney and the co-owner of Mr. Spots restaurant with her husband, Jim. They have three children and reside in Bowling Green where they attend St. Aloysius Catholic Church.
