State Rep. Sedrick Denson (D-Bond Hill) took the oath of office today during the opening session of the 133rd Ohio General Assembly at the Ohio Statehouse, officially beginning his first term as state lawmaker.
“It’s truly an honor to represent and be the voice for my community at the Statehouse,” said Rep. Denson. “With so many challenges holding working families back, it’s important that we put our differences aside and work together on legislation that puts people first and improves the lives of everyday Ohioans.”
After serving as chief-of-staff for Cincinnati Councilmember Wendell Young, Denson went on to serve as Southwest Ohio Outreach Director for For Ohio’s Future Action Fund, a labor-backed organization that charged him with building a coalition of progressive and inclusive organizations and community leaders to move key issues forward in the region.
He is currently the Southwest Ohio Director for the Ohio Environmental Council (OEC) where he works daily to help protect the air we breathe, the water we drink and public spaces we enjoy. In addition to his work at the OEC, Denson is Political Action Chair for Greater Cincinnati National Action Network, Government Affairs Chair for African American Chamber of Commerce.
