State Rep. Beth Liston (D-Dublin) took the oath of office today during the opening session of the 133rd Ohio General Assembly at the Ohio Statehouse, officially beginning Liston’s first term as state lawmaker.
“I’m extraordinarily proud to be able to go to work every day to represent neighbors, friends and all those in the 21st House District,” said Liston. “With opening day behind us, it’s time to roll up our sleeves to meet the difficult challenges facing working families across the state.”
As a doctor and a respected advocate for quality, affordable healthcare, Liston plans to use her experience to oppose cuts to Medicaid, fight to protect women’s and veterans’ healthcare, and support new programs to combat Ohio’s opioid crisis.
Rep. Liston is also excited to work on other commonsense issues like protecting funding for local communities as well as bringing business and community leaders together to create new public-private partnerships to grow the economy and create good-paying jobs across Ohio.
“It’s my hope that we can put our differences aside and work together on commonsense legislation to improve the lives of everyday Ohioans. It’s what they sent us here to do,” added Liston.
Liston currently lives in Dublin with her husband Denver and children Madeline and Adam.
