Judge Jennifer Brunner Receives Endorsement of The Matriots PAC
On the date of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Judge Jennifer Brunner was formally announced to be endorsed by The Matriots PAC, a nonpartisan Ohio political action committee, based in Columbus, Ohio, that supports women running for office regardless of their party affiliation. The Matriots encourages all women to participate more fully in the political process by promoting and voting for these candidates. Judge Brunner is the only statewide candidate endorsed by this organization whose members are women and men: Democrats, Republicans, and independents; Ohioans and out-of-staters.
The Matriots was founded after six central Ohio women participated in the Women’s March on Washington in January 2017. They came away from the event inspired to create a force that worked to elect more women to public office in Ohio to support economic justice for women and address political stalemate.
"Political leadership and participation by women is key to good government."
