Speaker of the Ohio House William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) today announced that the House Republican Caucus has selected Dr. Margaret K. Conditt of Liberty Township to serve as state representative of the 55th House District. Dr. Conditt was unanimously selected by the House Republican Caucus screening panel and by the full caucus following interviews with eight candidates.

“Dr. Conditt will be a valuable addition to our Republican Caucus and to the Ohio House as a whole,” Batchelder said. “Her wide breadth of experiences in both the public and private sector will serve her well as representative of the 55th District.”

“The screening panel was very impressed by the well-qualified candidates who applied to fill the position of former Rep. Coley,” said Speaker Pro Tempore Lou Blessing (R-Cincinnati), who served as chairman of the screening committee. “Although each would have served the 55th District with integrity and dedication, the screening panel ultimately decided that Dr. Conditt would best represent the district in the Statehouse.”

Dr. Conditt is a former Liberty Township trustee who retired from serving in Professional and Scientific Relations at Procter & Gamble in 2006. She received her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Colorado. She has remained active in various Republican endeavors, such as working with the Butler County Republican Party, serving as a delegate alternate for the Republican National Convention in 2008, and assisting with various statewide and national political campaigns.

Additionally, Dr. Conditt volunteers as a chaplain at the Butler County Jail and is an advisory board member at the Catholic Social Services of Butler and Warren Counties, a campus minister at the Catholic Newman Club of Northern Kentucky University, and a member of the board of directors of Catholic Charities of Southwest Ohio. She has received numerous awards and honors for her work in the sciences and is a widely published writer.

She will be sworn in during House session on Wednesday, June 8th.
