A MESSAGE FROM DOROTHY PELANDA
October 16, 2017
Over the last several months as I have campaigned across our beloved Buckeye State, I have been humbled by the support and encouragement that I have received. This has reinforced what I already knew - our Republican Party is a family. Like all families, we may have the occasional disagreement on an issue. Yet at the end of the day, we stick together because of our shared vision.
When I have had the privilege of addressing my colleagues in the Ohio House of Representatives, I have always made it a point to address them as my brothers and sisters. It is with that same endearment and with that equal love and respect that I pledge to support the Republican statewide ticket in 2018.
As we enter the primary season, it is with a grateful heart that I recognize we must do all we can to keep our Ohio GOP family strong. Part of that process is to ensure that we are a united party. I have every confidence that this goal will be achieved and it is with that sentiment that I announce I am ending my candidacy for Secretary of State.
I sincerely look forward to dedicating all my efforts to assist in ensuring victory for our family in 2018.
