Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) today announced that the screening panel for the soon-to-be vacant 3rd House District seat has unanimously recommended Theresa Charters Gavarone for the appointment.

“I want to thank each of the applicants who interviewed for this seat, all of whom have impressive strengths and backgrounds,” Speaker Rosenberger said. “However, I’m pleased today to announce that the screening panel has recommended Theresa Charters Gavarone for the seat. As an attorney and member of Bowling Green City Council, she has demonstrated a passion for public service and is dedicated to bettering her community. I have no doubt that she will be a welcomed addition to the Ohio House.”

Charters Gavarone holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Bowling Green State University and a law degree from the University of Toledo College of Law. As a resident of Wood County for over 30 years, she has an extensive background representing the community, serving on the Bowling Green City Council and participating in the local Kiwanis group. On the city council, she is the chair of the Public Lands and Buildings Committee and also serves on the Finance and Ways and Means Committee as well as the Planning, Zoning, and Economic Development Committee.

“I believe Theresa Charters Gavarone is an incredibly solid choice to represent the citizens of Wood County in the Ohio House of Representatives,” said State Representative Tim Brown, who currently serves in the 3rd House District seat. “As a member of city council, she has already established herself as someone capable of working in a bipartisan manner for the benefit of Wood County's citizens.  Her experience as a small business owner, an attorney, and an elected official will enable her to represent the people of Wood County extremely well.”

In addition to her public service, Charters Gavarone is an attorney with Ruck & Wright Law and the co-owner of a family business with her husband of 24 years, Jim. She and Jim reside in Bowling Green and have three children.

The Ohio House Republican Caucus will vote to appoint the screening panel’s recommendation on August 2nd.
