COLUMBUS – House Speaker William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) announced today that the Republican Caucus has selected Christina M. Hagan of Alliance to replace former Rep. Todd Snitchler (R-Uniontown), who was appointed by Governor John Kasich to serve as chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. Ms. Hagan was selected unanimously by the House Republican Caucus screening panel after the panel interviewed three candidates selected by the Stark County Republican Party. Ms. Hagan is the daughter of former State Representative John Hagan (R-Alliance) who served from 2000-2008.
“We are very fortunate to have someone like Christina Hagan in our caucus,” Speaker Batchelder said. “Her passion for serving the community and her philosophy of reducing government spending and helping bring jobs back to Ohio are qualities that we are eager to welcome into our caucus.”
Christina is currently finishing her collegiate career at Malone University with a degree in business administration. She is currently the head tennis coach at Marlington High School and is employed at a local restaurant in Jackson Township. Additionally, Ms. Hagan is a graduate of the JoAnn Davidson Leadership Institute, was a student of the University of Akron’s Bliss Institute of Applied Politics, and has been active in the Stark County Republican Party for many years.
