Jen Kanagy


I’m a nurse, a Mom, and I believe in our US Constitution with a vision for Newark!

That vision that provides open communication with me listening to you, expanding safety services, growing Newark’s economy, adding jobs and affordable housing, addressing homelessness and the growing opioid epidemic in our city and improving our infrastructure and city parks,

I’m ready to #Listenforachange

I have been serving the public for 25 years as a registered nurse. I resigned my positions in Columbus to work in Newark. I felt it was important to work in the community I serve.

I graduated from Berne Union High School in Sugar Grove, Ohio, before enrolling in nursing school at Hocking College.

I currently serve as co-captain of the Newark Homeless outreach where we work in the community to help fight the problem of homelessness in Newark.

Working in and volunteering on the streets of our city, I have my finger on the pulse of the needs of the people Newark. I see many areas that could be improved. I have ideas to improve peoples lives, and the city.

Find out more about my ideas on my issues page.
