A STRONG FIGHTER FOR WOMEN, SENIORS, CHILDREN, YOUNG ADULTS, FAMILIES AND THE POOR
Since Linda Omobien’s arrival at Akron City Council, she has introduced numerous resolutions in support of women, children, families and the poor. She has also been a strong advocate for worker’s rights and gun safety. Some of the issues that she’s passionate about but not limited to are:
As a trained Clinician with the highest Clinical Endorsements and Chair of the Health and Social Services Committee, Linda is in the forefront of fighting the Drug and Opioid Crisis.
Studies have shown that Akron’s economy is too traditional and needs to promote more entrepreneurship and innovation. Linda believes that in order for Akron to be successful, it needs to establish a unified culture of economic development as well as align organizations around a shared narrative that includes coordinated service delivery, connects firms and invests in research.
Linda believes that the city belongs to ALL the citizens of Akron. Currently, this is not the case. She believes that we can Elevate Akron by focusing on increasing job opportunities locally and improving collaboration.
As a Mental Health Administrator and Practitioner, the reduction of Infant Mortality in Akron, as well as Summit County, is important to Linda.
