Perrysburg, OH – Angela Zimmann, candidate for Northwest Ohio’s newly competitive Fifth U.S. Congressional District, continued her campaign around the district all day Saturday at several area events, including Harrison Rally Day and the BGSU-UT football game.
Saturday’s series of visits – which included stops in three of the recently redrawn district’s 14 counties – reinforced Zimmann’s grassroots focus of putting people before party.
“It is so important that the hardworking men and women of Northwest Ohio know that I am here to represent them,” Zimmann said. “Northwest Ohio deserves representation that is accessible and accountable, and that is what I pledge to be in Congress.”
Zimmann started her day in Paulding, OH, where she was the featured guest at a town hall meeting. Speaking before a group of local residents and community leaders, Zimmann discussed her plans to bring more jobs to the district and how her opponent, Congressman Bob Latta, has failed to represent the needs of his constituents.
Afterwards, Zimmann was approached by a local sheriff and two registered Republicans who each expressed their support for Zimmann.
Following her visit to Paulding, Zimmann joined festival goers at Perrysburg’s annual Harrison Rally Day, where she met with local vendors and community members.
Zimmann wrapped up her day tailgating at Northwest Ohio’s biggest football rivalry between the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University – both of which are Zimmann’s alma maters.
Since last November, Zimmann has been traveling and meeting with constituents in all 14 counties included in the Fifth Congressional District. Zimmann will continue to travel the district in the coming months, giving voters more opportunities to engage with Zimmann and express their needs and concerns.
