Jena Powell declares run for 80th House seat

DARKE COUNTY — Conservative Republican Jena Powell announced February 12 her candidacy for state representative of Ohio’s 80th House District.

Powell joins Miami County Commissioner Bud O’Brien (R-Troy), George H. Lovett (R-Tipp City) and J.D. Winteregg (R-Troy) as declared candidates running for the Republican nomination in the state’s May 8, 2018, primary. Current 80th District Representative Steve Huffman (R-Tipp City) is seeking election to the Ohio Senate.

The 80th District includes all of Miami County and the southern portion of Darke County.

The Arcanum native says she wants to increase opportunity for Ohioans and restore common sense to our government.

Powell said she is running for state representative because government rules and regulations are strangling opportunity and eroding local control of our schools, our communities, and our country. Meanwhile, she said, establishment politicians in Columbus are more interested in protecting the status quo than listening to us. Read more
