Hall to run for state House seat

        DEER PARK — Former City Councilwoman Sandra Hall, a Republican who did not run for re-election last year in this city of 5,800 residents, is seeking a bigger constituency in the November election this year.

        She wants to represent the 111,000 people in the newly redrawn 33rd District in the Ohio House of Representatives.

        Should the reapportionment survive a court challenge by Democrats, the 33rd District will cover most of the 30th District of state Rep. Sam Britton, D-Madisonville. Mr. Britton cannot run again because of term limits.

        The 33rd District will cover Cincinnati wards 3, 7, 9, 13 and 14, which include Roselawn, Bond Hill, Walnut Hills, Avondale, Evanston and Pleasant Ridge.

        It will also include St. Bernard; precincts A. C. D. E and L in Columbia Township; the towns of Deer Park, Norwood, Silverton, Golf Manor and Elmwood Place; Precinct DD in Springfield Township; and Precinct A in Sycamore Township.

        “I think I can be an effective representative for the inner city, specifically in education,” said Ms. Hall.

        She attended Walnut Hills High School and recently toured several West End schools.

        “We need a lot of racial healing and I think it starts with education,” she said.

        She has lived in Deer Park for 10 years, serving two terms on City Council. She represented Deer Park on the Deer Park-Silverton Joint Fire District board, serving as its vice president. She was also the city's representative on the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments' board of directors.

        Ms. Hall was treasurer for the Miami Valley Baptist Association, and City Council's liaison to the Deer Park Community School District.

        She is on the board of directors for the Dohn Community High School in Walnut Hills and a member of the First Christian Assembly of God in Corryville.

        “I think she would be an excellent state representative,” said Michael Barrett, chairman of the Hamilton County Republican Party. “She is intelligent, experienced and has done a lot for Deer Park. She knows the ropes.”
