Ohio Candidate’s Election Makes National History
November 6, 2002

Jennette Bradley says her election sends a message nationwide about equality in Ohio.

The first black woman elected lieutenant governor in any state, Bradley says Ohio has proven that people can succeed here without any artificial barriers.

But she is no longer intimidated by making history. In 1991, Bradley was the first black woman elected to Columbus City Council.

Bradley's role in Governor Taft's administration is still under discussion. Taft says she will be his top urban policy adviser, and she may also be appointed to head a state agency.
