Speaker: State Representative Christina Hagan
State Representative Christina Hagan is currently serving her second term in the Ohio House of Representatives. She represents the 50th House District, which includes portions of Stark County.
During her first term in the House, Representative Hagan served on seven diverse committees, including Agriculture & Natural Resources, Economic & Small Business Development, Public Utilities, and Veterans Affairs committees, as well as the 21st Century Manufacturing Task Force, the Board of Regents Internship Co-Op Advisory Board, and the Agency on Aging. She currently serves on Agriculture & Natural Resources, Economic Development & Regulatory Reform and Public Utilities.
Aside from her committee work, Representative Hagan has focused her legislative efforts on restoring Ohio’s reputation as a national economic leader by working to create a better business climate that can sustain a strong private sector job market. She believes that investing in the foundation of Ohio’s economy, business owners, is the key to making Ohio great again.
Representative Hagan has also been a leader in the effort to improve government accountability, promoting responsible use of taxpayer dollars to ensure that Ohioans’ resources are not being misused.
A native of Stark County, being born and raised in Marlboro Township, Representative Hagan is still proud to call Stark County home, and privileged to represent the 50th House District at the Statehouse.
