Baltimore, MD; August 28, 2018 - Clinicians for Progressive Care endorses Louise Valentine, Democrat for Ohio Senate 19. Louise is a working mother, successful businesswoman and respected community advocate, with a practical vision of health equality and universal access for all Ohioans.
Louise was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. She studied Textiles and Clothing at Ohio State University and went on to receive a Master’s of Science from the College of Human Ecology. She has worked for the past 10 years leading a consumer testing program.
As state senator, Louise will place the health of Ohioans at the top of her agenda. She will empower the government to defend against rising costs of medical treatment and pharmaceuticals. She knows that addiction and drug use are linked to poor access to resources and wants to rebuild mental health and addiction services, increase funding to support opiate overdose treatment and build opportunities for those in recovery to pursue housing and employment.
She is passionate about fighting infant mortality disproportionately affecting black Americans, through community education programs, local health centers and paid family leave. She also supports women’s right to health care including access to safe abortions and will fiercely advocate for organizations like Planned Parenthood that promote women’s health.
Making possible health for all must include an approach to universal care, and Louise is a sincere and knowledgeable supporter of Ohio’s Medicaid expansion -- which she will act to defend and solidify.
For all these reasons, we look forward to Louise Valentine in the Ohio State Senate. Please join us in supporting her with your vote or your donation.
