Meet the Freshmen


Seven Senate freshmen and 24 House freshmen will go to work in January. You can see who they are here. Some names will be familiar as a number of legislators who were term limited in one chamber successfully ran for a seat in the other, or have sat out for at least four years.  Eleven of the 31 freshmen have previously served in the General Assembly. Additionally, freshman Reps. Theresa Gavarone (R-Bowling Green) and Derek Merrin (R-Maumee) had been appointed to their seats back in August, and each won their November race.  11/10/2016
