Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (D-OH)
Representing the 11th District of Ohio
Representative Marcia L. Fudge is a committed public servant who brings a hard-working, problem-solving spirit to Congress and to the task of creating jobs, attacking predatory lending, and improving health care, small business, and education. As the city’s top executive, Representative Fudge led Warrensville Heights in building 200 new homes and shoring up a sagging retail base.
Representative Fudge put her strong work ethic into practice in her appointments on House Committees and Caucus seats. On the Agriculture Committee, she continues her commitment to ending childhood obesity in a generation, stamping out hunger and monitoring the safety of our food supply. On the Education and the Workforce Committee, the Congresswoman is a strong advocate for policies to strengthen our education system and promote job creation. Additionally, she was an early, and continues to be a strong, voice for voter protection.
Congresswoman Fudge is past National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Professionally, she earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from The Ohio State University and a law degree from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Cleveland State University.
Congresswoman Fudge is now serving her third term. She was elected in a special election in November 2008, re-elected in the general election that was held that same month and again in 2010. Because she is a visionary, she voted for President Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act as a welcome “initial lifeline”. As a dedicated public servant, she begins each morning with a firm promise “to do the people’s work”. That simple philosophy defines this Congresswoman of substance and character who always keeps her promise.
