United We Can
Get Things Done!
“Washington is out of touch and is not working for us. When Washington doesn’t work together, we all suffer. I'm not a politician, I'm a concerned entrepreneur & single mom. My only agenda is to help Ohioans live better lives. I truly care about you and your family. We all do better when we all work together. I'm ready to get to work for you to help improve your quality of life. Washington gets it wrong because they’re too divided and too far removed from the consequences their polices have on the working class. Bringing people together with win-win solutions are my specialty. I will present a fresh perspective to Washington by offering commonsense solutions to core issues, so we can achieve positive change. Send me to fight for you. Join #TeamTamie & Let's Get Things Done!” Tamie Wilson
Tamie was born in Columbus, Ohio. At the age of five, Tamie’s father relocated to Dayton, Ohio, for new employment. Months later, Tamie and her family followed. Tamie understands the challenges rural families face being separated from family due to having to go outside their city for work. When Tamie was twelve, her family moved to a suburb of Columbus, Westerville. Although she grew up in the city, she spent her weekends and summers in the country in beautiful Gallipolis, Ohio. When she spent time on her uncle's farm, she experienced farm-to-table firsthand as she gathered eggs for breakfast and vegetables for dinner. Her chores were to feed the chickens, pigs, cows, and horses.You can say Tamie is a city girl with down-home country family values.
Tamie married her high school sweetheart who was a United States Marine. Like many wives, she put her life and college aspirations on hold to support her husband and his career, service to our country. Tamie lived the military life during war at a time before cell phones. She went months without talking to her husband. There were times she worried she would get a call or knock on the door telling her that he was killed in the line of duty. Tamie traveled and lived abroad. She experienced many cultures and developed great friendships with people of all ethnicities and economic backgrounds. Tamie respects all people and all cultures.
