U.S. Senate Candidate Jane Timken Congratulates Wave of Freedom-Focused School Board Candidates

November 3, 2021

Timken Invested $50,000 in Effort to ‘Take Back Ohio’s Classrooms’


 CANTON, OH – Jane Timken, candidate for U.S. Senate, congratulated the wave of freedom-focused school board candidates that won victory in Ohio and across the country last night, buoyed by the unprecedented support of moms and dads invested in their children’s education. Timken specifically congratulated the nearly two dozen school board candidates she helped to boost as part of a $50,000 investment to ‘Take Back Ohio’s Classrooms.’ This included individual contributions, partnership on field efforts, and GOTV robocalls and text messages. 

“Education was on the ballot last night and the countless victories by school board candidates in Ohio and across the country sent a resounding message that freedom, parents, and patriotism prevailed,” said Timken. “Democrats want you to believe that America is a racist country and parents shouldn’t have a say in their child’s education, but last night’s victories from Virginia to Ohio proved that the voices of freedom-loving moms and dads are stronger than the noise of the woke Left. I was proud to stand with Ohio parents in the fight for our classroom – now it’s time to continue that fight for our country.” 


Jane offered her congratulations to the following candidates: 

  • Diana Rigby, Dublin
  • Zach Vorst, Hilliard
  • Beth Murdoch, Hilliard
  • Elizabeth Laffay, Huron
  • Darbi Boddy, Lakota
  • Isaac Adi, Lakota
  • Jeff Thompson, Madison
  • Annie Payne, Diane Popelas, Mentor (currently tied, one will win)
  • John McClelland, New Albany
  • Debbie Kalinosky, New Albany
  • Mike Busch, New Albany
  • Jeremiah Sawyer, North Royalton
  • Lisa Shuck, North Royalton
  • Mark Ruda, Parma

  • Clay Lopez, Pickerington
  • JD Postage, Pickerington
  • Peter Corrigan, Rocky River
  • Lou Sauter, Upper Arlington
  • Christina Sherwood, West Geauga
  • Stacy Menser, Willoughby Hills

In addition, Jane added the below in regards to the other candidates who while weren’t successful last night, helped to elevate the importance of parents’ voices: 

“It was so encouraging to see the many first-time candidates who stood up to take an active role in their community and protect our children. We need more good candidates running for office and I’m confident these parents’ voices will continue to rise.”
