FRANCES STRICKLAND & David Pepper
Frances Strickland is the former First Lady of Ohio (January 8, 2007-January 8, 2011) and an educational psychologist.
Frances Strickland grew up on a dairy farm in Simpsonville, Kentucky Shelby County, Kentucky, graduated with a Bachelor's Degree from Murray State University, and was a health and physical education teacher and received her doctorate in educational psychology at the University of Kentucky where she met Ted Strickland. She and Governor Strickland met on the day after Christmas in 1973 and married that day in 1987. They were both 46, and decided it was too late to have children. After she graduated, she served as a school psychologist for many years in a public school system. She plays the guitar and is often heard at rallies for her husband. As the First Lady of Ohio, she serves as the chair of the Family and Children First Councils, composed of state-agency leaders that helps families seeking government services. She has also written a children's novel about the first female Governor of Kentucky Martha Layne Collins.
David Pepper has a track record of stepping up to bring common sense, responsible leadership at tough times.
David made his first run for political office at 29 years’ old (in 2001), and finished first out of a field of 26 candidates for Cincinnati City Council. It was the first time a newcomer finished first in almost 40 years. David ran for reelection in 2003, again finishing first by an even larger margin over a field of 26 candidates. He won both traditionally Democratic and Republican wards across the City.
Taking office in January 2007, David arrived at a County government that had been badly mismanaged—a squandered reserve fund, wasteful spending, questionable ethics and management practices, poor relations with the state and City, and underinvested and unsuccessful economic development. Since he arrived, David has fought to clean up the mess: adding fiscally prudent policies and reforms to assure responsibility and accountability while eliminating waste and reducing overall spending by tens of millions of dollars; implementing ethics reforms; improving relations with the city and state; pushing to reform the criminal justice system; and investing in new economic growth and recovery strategies, creating thousands of jobs and successfully moving forward on the Banks project to revitalize Ohio and Cincinnati’s riverfront.
Other Biographical Information
Since 2000, David, 38, has also served as an attorney in the Cincinnati office of the law firm of Squire Sanders & Dempsey, where he concentrates his practice on appellate litigation. From 1999-2000, he clerked for Judge Nathaniel Jones on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati.
