About Christina Shaw


I'm Christina Shaw, candidate for Stow City Council At-Large in the Nov. 5, 2019, election.

Let me tell you a little about myself:

I'm a lifelong Stow resident.  I grew up here, graduated from Stow-Munroe Falls High School (Class of 1988) and raised my children here.  

I studied Communications at Kent State University and enjoyed a rewarding career in fashion merchandising, as an outside sales rep for several companies and eventually as a senior account executive for Donna Karan and Tom Ford, leading a team of more than 200 salespeople.  

Over the past 3 years, I've been elected or appointed for various local boards and committees, that work toward the betterment of our region. These activities include:

  • Elected 27th State Central Committeewoman for the Ohio Democratic Party;
  • Young Women's Mentorship Program;
  • Work with the Women's Endowment Fund;
  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MAPP);
  • Collaborative Against Human Trafficking - Summit County;
  • American Cancer Society;
  • Community Advocate for Villa West;
  • Summit County Opiate Task Force;
  • Democratic Precinct Committee for Summit County at Central Committee Member Ward 3;
  • Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America;
  • President of the Stow Democratic Club;
  • Steering Committee for the Summit County Democratic Party.

I'm a proven leader and I'm not afraid of hard work. But, that's just part of my story. 

I'm also a cancer survivor. I was a pretty strong person before my diagnosis, but this 11-year battle made me even stronger.

Through my faith, the strength of my family (especially my mother) and friends and incredible medical teams, I have survived and am now in full remission. It was a journey I would not wish on my worst enemy, and, yet, I do believe I've developed some insights that helped me become an even better person.  

I've learned to treasure every single day. For so long, I didn't know if there would be a next week, so I don't put off till next week what I can get done tomorrow.

I've learned to appreciate the small things in life and all the people around me.

More than anything, I've learned that I don't want to waste any more time.  I've come through this struggle with a real desire to make my life mean something more, by giving back to my community to help make it a better place those who live here now and into the future.

I'm committed to fight for full equality for everyone. I will continue to uphold the values to end discrimination in the areas of education, employment, healthcare, and more. I will combat biases that limit opportunities in economic, political, and social situations. 

But, I can't do it without you. I'd love to hear your ideas or concerns or, perhaps we could talk at one of my next campaign events.  Please join me on this adventure!  Please feel free to call me if you would like to talk or join our campaign 330-322-5780.
