Hilliard, OH, August 7 - Consumer attorney and small business owner Troy Doucet announced today that he is running as a democratic candidate for the Ohio Senate, District 16.
Troy Doucet fights for Ohioans every day as a consumer lawyer. His law firm employs a handful of attorneys. They are focused on holding big banks, mortgage companies, and debt collectors accountable for hurting Ohioans. His firm has helped countless families save their homes from foreclosure.
After working for Ohioans on an individual level, Troy is excited to serve the community at the policy level. His consumer work forms the basis of his run. He said, “I believe our state government needs to refocus policy towards serving families, neighborhoods, and communities.” Because of his work serving consumers as a lawyer, Troy has the skill-set to lead that discussion where our laws are made, the General Assembly.
Troy is married and has two daughters, Alondra and Claire. His wife Julie holds a Masters of Public Health degree and is a Certified Health Education Specialist. Their family lives in Hilliard with their two rescue dogs, Suzy and Bella. Troy grew up in a military family due to his father’s career in the U.S. Air Force.
The 16th Senate District is located in western Franklin County and covers much of Worthington, Dublin, Hilliard, Upper Arlington, and Grove City. It is among the most likely Senate seats to flip blue in 2020. Voters in the district supported democratic House candidates 54.5% in 2018. It is currently held by a Republican who will be running for reelection.
Troy has support from current and former elected officials and candidates around Franklin County. He is entering the race with a solid head start over other Democratic candidates because of his prior involvement with State House District 21 (which is in the 16th district). That race helped Troy build positive relationships in the district. Troy looks forward to bringing a positive message to voters in the year ahead.
