Ohio's 13th Congressional District
In 2022, Congresswoman Sykes defeated a Republican Fox News commentator to represent Ohio’s newly redrawn 13th Congressional District, winning one of the toughest races in the country. Before coming to Congress, she served 8 years in the Ohio House of Representatives including 3 years as Minority Leader. There she fought for tax cuts for middle-class and working families, funding for high-speed Internet, and higher wages and safer working conditions for Ohio’s workers. In particular, Sykes’ work on domestic violence issues earned bipartisan praise and resulted in her priority legislation, Ohio HB 1, to be signed into law, which protects the safety and security of people in violent relationships.
Rep. Sykes is working to connect her community to Congress. She sits on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee where she works to rebuild our roads and infrastructure and protect our water resources and environment. Additionally she serves on the Science, Space and Technology Committee where she guides research investment and technology development.
