"Growing up in Youngstown I learned that you never take anything for granted." – Joe Schiavoni

In 2018, Ohio will elect new statewide office holders. Leading up to the election, the City Club will be hosting conversations with candidates seeking statewide office.

Joe Schiavoni has represented the 33rd Senate District in the State House - encompassing Columbiana and Mahoning Counties, including Youngstown - since 2008 when he was appointed to a vacant seat. In 2013, Senator Schiavoni was unanimously elected Democratic Leader of the Senate after serving two years as Assistant Senate Democratic Leader. On March 1, 2017, Senator Schiavoni was the first Democratic candidate to announce his candidacy for Governor.

While in office, Senator Schiavoni worked to improve water infrastructure and increase K-12 funding. He is also a member of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Mahoning Valley, the Mahoning County Bar Association, Curbstone Coaches, the local Farm Bureau, Boardman Civic Association, Italian-American Education Foundation, and the Legends of Leather Boxing Organization.

Join us for conversation with gubernatorial candidate Senator Joe Schiavoni.

Also, join us beforehand for readings of the winning essays from The Hope and Stanley Adelstein Free Speech Essay Contest.
