NOW PAC is pleased to endorse Jennifer Brunner for the U.S. Senate. Brunner is a staunch supporter of women's rights and will be a leader in the Senate. Brunner's experience includes owning a small business, serving as a judge and currently, and she is currently serving as Ohio's Secretary of State.
In 2000, Brunner defeated a governor's appointee in a largely conservative county for an unexpired term on the Franklin County Common Pleas Court. After her 2002 reelection, Judge Brunner created and managed a drug court to reduce crime and save taxpayer dollars. In 2006, in the wake of Ohio's troubled 2004 election process, Jennifer was elected Secretary of State, pledging elections that were free, fair, open and honest.
Brunner supports a woman's right to choose and to make her own health care decisions and believes right to safe, legal abortion must be protected. Her solid support of Marriage Equality as a matter of civil rights includes marriage, for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered individuals. In the Senate, she will continue to push for "single payer" (government insured) health care and if not already passed, she will support the "Employee Free Choice Act".
If that wasn't enough, NOW activists got to hear Jennifer Brunner speak at the 2009 National NOW Conference! Her entire speech is available online (see above!) or on NOW's conference website, along with her speaker biography.
NOW PAC looks forward to supporting Jennifer Brunner in her bid to be the first women Senator from Ohio.
