State House Member Roster
State Coordinator: Theresa Sedlak-Hanslik
Born and raised in Northeast OHIO, I’ve always been passionate with how policy affects our everyday life. Learning at an early age to “think for myself” has been both a blessing and a curse. I chose not to be spoon-fed with what the masses were serving and to challenge much of what I am told.
As a health care professional, I often find myself debating issues with colleagues. Ironically, many believe “compassion” is synonymous with permitting that much of our hard-earned incomes be sucked into a ‘black hole’ under the control of “caring” bureaucrats. It takes both patience and principle to challenge the status quo.
My father reminds me of a time when his father warned, “In 40 years from now, Russia will be capitalist and America will be communist”. Prophetic words from someone who, having supported Barry Goldwater, the founder of the conservative movement which later inspired Ronald Reagan, truly thought for himself! Today, I believe our great country is being infected with leaders who are trying to make this a reality!
My experience as a Registered Nurse has enhanced my understanding of human behaviors and the ease at which people become followers. My commitment as a business entrepreneur has outraged me on the overreach of government in our lives. As a single Mom, my children inspire me in the fight to protect their constitutional liberties and God-given rights. Values instilled in me from my own parents, grandparents and Catholic-Christian faith, continue to keep me focused in today’s dysfunctional society. Conservatism is the only treatment that can eradicate the ills threatening the health of today’s America.
State Coordinator: Brandi Henneman-Wielgopolski
I graduated from the University of Toledo with a Bachelor’s Degree in both Marketing and Human Resource Management and for the last eight years, I have worked as a teller in the highly regulated banking industry. My education provides me sound insight to business operations and decision making processes, and my experience as a teller gives me unique, firsthand insight on how government regulations stifle productivity.
Issues I actively champion include individual liberty, free enterprise, tax policy, and energy policy. My true passion lies in the idea of America, liberty, and protecting our rights. When I was seven years old, my father told me that Americans liberties are unique and impressed upon me the importance of protecting them. This conversation instilled in me profound respect and love for this country and inspired the passion that motivates me to stand up and take action against government overreach.
