by Mike Lesko | Reporter Incumbent Kathleen Clyde, the winner in the reconfigured Ohio House District 75 race, said she plans to continue working on "job creation, strengthening our economy and fixing our unconstitutional school funding system." "Thank you [constituents] for your faith in me," Clyde said. "Please keep in touch with me, and know that I so look forward to working for you in the coming two-year term." Clyde (D-Kent) defeated challenger Nick Skeriotis (R-Mogadore) 29,631 to 19,128, according to final but unofficial results from the Ohio Secretary of State's website. "I would like to thank everyone for their tireless efforts in helping with the campaign," Skeriotis said. "I am also grateful for all the contributions that came in to support the campaign." Skeriotis said he has not made a decision about whether he will run again. Clyde, 33, is currently the representative for Ohio House District 68, where she has served the last two years. She is an attorney. Skeriotis, 52, has not held public office before. He owns a paving company. Communities in District 75 include Atwater, Brady Lake Village, Brimfield, Charlestown, Deerfield, Edinburg, Franklin, Kent, Mogadore, Palmyra, Paris, Randolph, Ravenna, Rootstown, Streetsboro, Suffield, Sugar Bush Knolls and Tallmadge.
