The Youngstown Press Club is pleased to welcome Connie Schultz and Senator Sherrod Brown.
Connie Schultz is a Pulitzer Prize winning, nationally syndicated columnist for Creators Syndicate, and Professional in Residence at Kent State University School of Journalism. She won the Pulitzer Prize in 2005 for Commentary for columns that judges praised for providing “a voice for the underdog and the underprivileged.” She also won the Robert F. Kennedy Award for Social Justice Reporting and the Batten Medal, which honors “a body of journalistic work that reflects compassion, courage, humanity and a deep concern for the underdog.”
Schultz is the author of two books published by Random House: “Life Happens – And Other Unavoidable Truths,” a collection of essays, and “…and His Lovely Wife,” a memoir about her husband Sherrod Brown’s successful 2006 race for the U.S. Senate. Her upcoming novel, “Erietown” will also be published by Random House in the spring of 2020.
A lifelong Ohioan, Senator Sherrod Brown has spent his career fighting for the Dignity of Work, and for social and economic justice. He has held more than 340 roundtables across Ohio, because he believes the best ideas don’t come out of Washington – they come from conversations with Ohioans across our state. And it’s those ideas and that community input that are helping him deliver results for the people of Ohio.
Sherrod Brown serves as Ranking Member on the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. He also serves on the Finance Committee, the Agriculture Committee, and is the longest serving Ohioan on the Veterans’ Affairs Committee. Sherrod drives a Jeep made by union workers in Toledo, Ohio, and his suits are made by union workers outside of Cleveland. He was born and raised in Mansfield, Ohio, where he was an Eagle Scout and spent summers working on his family’s farm.
Ms. Schultz and Senator Brown live in Cleveland, Ohio with their rescue dogs, Franklin and Walter, and have three daughters, a son, a daughter-in-law, three sons-in-law, and seven grandchildren.
