House Republican leaders in Columbus didn't have to look far for a candidate to replace Lynn Slaby in the House.
She's from Slaby's house.
Slaby's wife Marilyn was appointed to the post today by Speaker Bill Batchelder following Lynn Slaby's appointment to the Public Utilities Commission.
She'll be officially sworn in as the 41st District state representative next week.
(News Release) Speaker of the Ohio House William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) today announced that former state representative Marilyn Slaby (R-Copley) will fill the seat recently vacated by her husband, Lynn Slaby (R-Copley), following his recent appointment to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.
“I am delighted that Mrs. Slaby will be once again joining the House Republican Caucus,” Speaker Batchelder said. “She has a wealth of experience in state government and in the private sector, which will serve her constituents well in the Ohio House.”
Marilyn Slaby is a retired educator and served for ten years as an employee with the Summit County Board of Elections. Previously, she served as state representative of the 41st House District in 2004, where she was vice-chair of the House Education Committee and member of the Health and Local Government committees. Additionally, she has owned and operated two small businesses over the years. Marilyn also serves as vice-chair of the Summit County Central Committee and is an elected member of the Republican State Central Committee.
Mrs. Slaby was recommended by the Summit County Republican Party for the seat, therefore eliminating the need for a screening panel to convene and select a candidate. She will be sworn-in during House Session on Tuesday, April 24 at 11:00am.
Mr. and Mrs. Slaby have three children and four grandchildren.
