SHELBY – Dr. Christina Collins, PhD, recently spoke via Zoom to a group of Shelby and Richland County voters. She is a candidate for the State Board of Education. Her name will appear on the November general election ballot.
“I am an educator,” Dr. Collins told the gathering. “I was a high school English teacher, and then I went to work at OSU for a bit, then moved up to Medina to become a district level administrator for the last eight years.”
During her remarks to the gathering, Dr. Collins addressed two specific issues: school funding and what she described as “out of control” standardized testing.
“What I have to offer right now is that I am innovative, that I’m a critical thinker, that I’m a problem solver,” added Dr. Collins.
Dr. Collins is running to represent the 5th State School Board District. It is an expansive district that includes all of Richland, Ashland, Wayne, and Medina counties and parts of Holmes, Stark, Summit, and Cuyahoga counties.
“I plan to be accessible,” explained Dr. Collins. “As a public servant, my role is to make sure I’m representing a general consensus from across (the district’s) diversity.”
Voters can learn more about Dr. Collins at drcollins4stateboard.com. Her Facebook page is DrCollins4StateBoard.

The first get together of the Shelby Democrats was held on July 11-1968. A picnic at Seltzer Park consisted of a covered dish furnished by each one attending.
Thirty people enjoyed a discussion on the possibility of forming a Democratic club in the Shelby area.
The first officers were elected in September of that year. They were president James Moorehead, first vice president L.D. Ball, second vice president Lonzie McKenzie, recording secretary Mary Stine, and treasurer Thomas Yetzer.
Thanks to those local Democratic pioneers who laid a firm foundation for our club! We owe them a debt of gratitude for a job well done.
