KellyName: Brigid Kelly
Office you’re seeking:
State Representative, OH-31
Are you an incumbent?

Tell us a little bit about yourself (i.e. where are you from, where’d you go to school, what you do for a living, etc.)

A lifelong Ohioan, I actually grew up in the same house that my mom did! Prior to being elected, I worked full-time for the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW), fighting side-by-side with our members for higher wages, better benefits, and safer places to work.

Why are you running for this office?

Because it’s still too hard for too many families to get by.  I want to continue the work of helping to create more opportunities and better lives for people in our district.

What are the most important issues on your campaign?

We focus on issues that impact people and families in our community every day – prioritizing strong schools, protecting hardworking Ohioans, fighting for equality, and working for safe, healthy neighborhoods.

Give us a fun fact about yourself:

I always wear green for work – and so does my Bitmoji.


What’s your favorite thing about Ohio?

Her people!

Which team is your favorite sports team? If there’s a fun reason why, tell us! 

Xavier Musketeers and University of Cincinnati Bearcats – I’m a graduate of both schools.

If you were a professional athlete what song would you choose to be your “walk out” song?

Run the World (Beyonce)

What TV show have you binge watched entirely too fast?


If you were an Olympic athlete, what sport would you compete in?

4 x 1600 relay (I would need a very strong team.)
