January 7, 2019
Today, Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) took the oath of office to serve in the Ohio Senate for the 133rd General Assembly.
“It is an incredible responsibility and I’m honored to be a State Senator,” said Senator Fedor. “I’m ready to get to work for the people of Toledo.”
Senator Fedor will represent Ohio’s 11th Senate District, which is based in greater Toledo. She returns to the Senate, where she previously served from 2002-2010, following eight years as the Ohio Representative for the 45th and 47th House districts. Throughout her legislative career, Senator Fedor has championed responsive and responsible government. She brings with her both expertise and an accomplished body of legislative work focused predominantly on education, health care, and human trafficking where she is considered the state’s preeminent legislative voice in the fight to combat it.
“The state of Ohio and its families, skilled trades, small businesses, environment and more are depending on us,” said Senator Fedor. “The future of this great state will be shaped by what we do here. I plan to be transparent and accountable to those who rely on us the most.”
A veteran of the U.S. Air Force and Ohio Air National Guard, Senator Fedor spent 18 years in the classroom at Toledo Public Schools before pursuing elected office in the legislature in 2000 (Ohio House of Representatives, 52nd District).
