COLUMBUS— Speaker Larry Householder (R-Glenford) today announced a screening panel to review candidates wishing to fill the 29th District seat in Ohio House of Representatives.

The seat, which covers part of southwestern Hamilton County, will become vacant due to the pending resignation of State Representative Louis W. Blessing III (R-Colerain Township), who has been recommended for appointment to a seat in the Ohio Senate.

“Representative Blessing has been an outstanding advocate for his constituents and I am confident that commitment to community will continue in the Ohio Senate,” Householder said. “We appreciate his work through the years in the House and wish him the best in his new role as state senator.”

Householder has tapped Representatives Tom Brinkman (R-Mt. Lookout), Sara Carruthers (R-Hamilton), William Seitz (R-Cincinnati) and Paul Zeltwanger (R-Mason) to serve on the screening committee.

Individuals residing in the 29th District interested in being considered for appointment to the unexpired term, which runs through December 2020, should email a cover letter and resume to by noon on October 7th. Interviews will be conducted on October 8th.
