Just a little while back I defended a young persons right to run for office, now I might have to eat those words. An 18-year-old high school student, Chelsi Smith of New Matamoras, is running unopposed for the Republican nomination for Ohio’s 93rd House district (which I live in).
Other candidates for office include an 18-year-old high school senior who plans to challenge state Rep. Jennifer Garrison, D-Marietta.
Chelsi Smith of New Matamoras is still attending classes at Wood County Christian School. She is unopposed in the March 4 Republican primary for the 93rd District Ohio House of Representatives seat, as is Garrison on the Democratic ballot.
I doubt that she’ll be able to provide a serious challenge to Garrison, but it’ll still be interesting.
