Meet Jill Schiller

Like most people in Cincinnati, I grew up in a home that valued education and hard work. My dad is a retired water worker and proud union member. My mom was an office manager. When I was 7, my mom was diagnosed with Lupus – a disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Without dad’s union benefits and healthcare, my family would have been forced into bankruptcy due to the cost of her treatment. I truly understand the importance of quality, affordable healthcare and the physical, financial, and emotional toll of being a caregiver.

I went on to become the first in my family to graduate from college, to run a consulting business that serves local nonprofit organizations, and to start a nonprofit that focuses on children’s literacy. I know what it means to start a business from scratch. The people of Southern Ohio need access to a quality education, good jobs with strong benefits, and affordable healthcare that will allow their families to thrive.

I am running for Treasurer because families in Cincinnati deserve someone who champions their values.
