COLUMBUS – Ohio House Speaker Bob Cupp (R-Lima) recently appointed State Rep. Andrea White (R-Kettering) to the Ohio Sentencing Data Platform (OSDP) Board.
The OSDP is designed is help judges implement the Uniform Sentencing and Method of Conviction forms and to empower courts with accessible and reliable information. The group aims to use data for informed decision-making, improve transparency, and make data accessible for the public, practitioners, and research.
“The OSDP will create a data-centered environment that gives Ohio practitioners and policy makers an unprecedented ability to better analyze and understand the complexities of our criminal justice system,” said White. “This information will help ensure a safer, fairer and more cost-effective system. I’m grateful Speaker Cupp appointed me to this Board and I look forward to using my criminal justice background to contribute in this role.”
White previously served as the Clerk of Court for Kettering Municipal Court from 2004 until she was elected to the House. While Clerk of Court, she focused on reinventing processes, leveraging technology, and returning millions in revenues and cost savings to improve how the court serves community citizens.
She has also worked on criminal justice issues locally and statewide as legislative co-chair and president of the Ohio Association of Municipal/County Court Clerks.
