Ohio Federation of Teachers


I am truly pleased and humbled to announce that I have been endorsed by the Ohio Federation of Teachers. I am especially proud to be supported by my peers--thousands of dedicated men and women who have devoted their lives to kids and public education.

I want to especially thank OFT President Melissa Cooper for her strong statement of support:

"For far too long, public school students, parents, and teachers have been ignored while the legislature has funneled more and more public money to 

Ohio Education Association

OEA Fund for Children and Public Education

I am truly pleased and humbled to announce that I have been endorsed by the Ohio Education Association. No issue is more important to our families or our state's future than public education. As a member of the House I'll work tirelessly to ensure that every child in this state has the opportunity to receive the world-class education they want, need, and deserve. 

United Auto Workers

U.A.W. Community Action Program Council

I am honored that the UAW has recognized my unwavering commitment to protecting the rights of working men and women. As the state rep. from the 59th district I'll do everything in my power to strengthen and defend the labor moment because I know that union membership is the key to prosperity for working families here in the Valley and across the state.

Barack Obama

44th President of the United States

I am honored, humbled, and thrilled to have been endorsed by former President Barack Obama. He knows, as we all do, that this election is too important, up and down the ballot, to sit out and watch from the sidelines. It will take all of us to win and get this state back on the right track. Let's get to work!

National Democratic Redistricting Committee

Political Organization

I am pleased to have earned the endorsement and support of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee. This election is critical up and down the ballot for a myriad of reasons; one of those is to fix the corrupt, gerrymandered districts that the legislature has installed in Ohio and to ensure fair districts for the future. I’m very proud of this endorsement. 

Ohio Civil Service Employees Association

Labor Union

I am pleased and proud to have earned the endorsement and support of the 27,000 members of the Ohio Civil Service Employees Association. OCSEA's members work for state and local governments in nearly every one of Ohio's 88 counties. They protect our water, plow our roads in the winter, and keep our families and communities safe. During the COVID-19 crisis, OCSEA members who work in Ohio's correctional institutions put their health and lives at risk for us each and every day. I look forward to working with and for them as a member of the General Assembly.

Thanks, Brothers and Sisters for your support!

House 59 Stanley, Chris.pdf.png
John Boccieri

Former Congressman and State Representative

John Boccieri offered the following comments along with his endorsement of Mr. Stanley’s candidacy: “Statehouse Republicans have allowed the culture of corruption to haunt our state with one party in control for the last 30 years.  Chris will restore integrity and allow our citizens’ voices to speak more loudly than the special interest groups roaming the halls of the capital,” said Mr. Boccieri who serves as a Pilot in the Air Force Reserves and also served as a State Legislator and Congressman. 

“The shocking scandal involving the Speaker of the House makes it very clear our district needs a voice like Chris Stanley in the Statehouse.  We need to send a lawmaker to Columbus who will rip-down the ‘For Sale’ sign and restore access to state government for working families,” he said.  


unaccountable private schools. Chris Stanley is committed to reversing this trend and standing up for all Ohio students."


Educators, parents, kids, the people who live in the 59th District, and across Ohio can count on me to fight for public education each and every day when I am elected to the General Assembly. Thanks again to the OFT leadership and members for your support...

With your help, we'll win on November 3.
