Get to Know Stacie Baker
Get to Know 2017 Endorsed Candidate Stacie Baker
Name: Stacie Baker
Office you’re seeking: Reynoldsburg City Council (at large)
Are you an incumbent? No
Why are you running?
As a member of the Reynoldsburg community, I have seen what the City of Reynoldsburg can be. However, that potential has not been bought forth and utilized. This is due to the business model being implemented by the current Reynoldsburg City Council. I call this the business model of “the status quo”. I am running for Reynoldsburg City Council to help bring needed change.
What are the most important issues on your campaign?
The most important issues on my campaign are fixing the City of Reynoldsburg's aging infrastructure, generating economic development and increasing safety and services to all residents of Reynoldsburg.
Give us a fun fact about yourself.
One of my favorite songs is the “The Red Strokes” by Garth Brooks
Who is your favorite president? Why?
Lyndon B. Johnson because he helped push through some of the most comprehensive pieces of civil rights and voting rights legislation that still influences American society. Also, because of his initiative to build “the great society” where all people would contribute and enjoy in the success of the country. However, his own pride would be his downfall, but in my opinion he would be considered one of the best United States Presidents (Hint: Next to President Obama).
What’s your favorite food on the campaign trail? Why?
Chinese Food and BBQ, no particular reason why it’s just good eating.
If you could be a superhero, who would you be? Why?
Thor, because he is not afraid to get his hands dirty.
If you were a professional athlete what song would you choose to be your “walk out” song?
The theme to “Jurassic Park”
What was your first paid job?
Working at Churches Chicken
How can young dems help in your race?
I love young dems. I served for years as the Secretary of the Franklin County Young Dems but had to step down for my campaign. Any help you can offer is appreciated. If you live in Reynoldsburg, please vote for me in the primary (it's competitive only 3 of the 5 Democratic candidates will advance to the general)!
