Colleen Reynolds is a community leader, local government expert, and candidate for Ohio State House 26th District. She grew up with the values of faith, family, and leaving your community better than you found it. That’s been her driving force throughout her career, where she has fought for women and survivors of gender based-violence, made government accessible to our neighbors across our city, and brought arts investments to key neighborhoods.
Colleen holds dual bachelor's degrees in Theology and Philosophy, Politics, and the Public Program from Xavier University, where she served as student body president. She is active in the community, serving on the Oakley Community Council Board for the last 5 years and the last 3 as President. Additionally, Colleen works with various organizations in managing issues such as substance abuse, mental health, and criminal justice reform.
Colleen is a fierce advocate for women and survivors. Her work to combat gender-based violence has gone from Cincinnati all the way to the White House. In Columbus, she’ll continue to be a voice for women and girls. She’ll fight for everyone to have the right to make their own healthcare decisions, for better wages and equal pay, and to feel safe from gun violence in their communities.
