Reem Subei is a Democratic candidate for Ohio State Senate, District 2. The seat is currently occupied by Republican Theresa Gavarone.
According to reports,
Subei was inspired to run for Ohio Senate through her job at Able, a nonprofit law firm. She said it sets her up well to represent a wide range of people since that’s already something she does on a daily basis.
“I have a lot of experience and training writing legislation. Part of what I do at my job is to help city councils and community members that need legislation drafted to improve the civil rights and the rights of their constituents,” Subei said.
She also said she realizes the significance of just stepping into the race.
“I’m told I’m the first Muslim person to run for the Ohio Senate and if elected or when elected, I’m told I would be the first Muslim in the Ohio Statehouse,” Subei said.
