State Rep. Beth Liston (D-Dublin) took the oath of office today during the opening session of the 133rd Ohio General Assembly at the Ohio Statehouse, officially beginning Liston’s first term as state lawmaker.
“I’m extraordinarily proud to be able to go to work every day to represent neighbors, friends and all those in the 21st
House District,” said Liston. “With opening day behind us, it’s time to
roll up our sleeves to meet the difficult challenges facing working
families across the state.”
As a doctor and a respected advocate for quality, affordable
healthcare, Liston plans to use her experience to oppose cuts to
Medicaid, fight to protect women’s and veterans’ healthcare, and support
new programs to combat Ohio’s opioid crisis.
Rep. Liston is also excited to work on other commonsense issues
like protecting funding for local communities as well as bringing
business and community leaders together to create new public-private
partnerships to grow the economy and create good-paying jobs across
“It’s my hope that we can put our differences aside and work
together on commonsense legislation to improve the lives of everyday
Ohioans. It’s what they sent us here to do,” added Liston.
Liston currently lives in Dublin with her husband Denver and children Madeline and Adam.
