State Representative Angie King is serving her first term in the Ohio House of Representatives. She represents the 84th House District, which encompasses all of Mercer County, northern Darke County and southern Auglaize County.
King is a small business owner, who grew up the oldest of five children in a farming family. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership and a Masters of Business Administration, both from Wright State University.
King has a strong record of public and community service. She previously served as a Celina City Council member for 11 years. Currently, she serves as Mercer County Recorder, a position she’s held for the past 10 years.
After discovering her infant daughter was deaf, she became a strong advocate for the deaf and hard of hearing at both the state and national level. She is proud to have played a part in Ohio’s Universal Newborn Hearing Screening legislation. Her persistent and persuasive advocacy prompted the U.S. Department of Education to update its early intervention language in the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA), ensuring that parents receive the full range of options for their deaf or hearing impaired children, including cochlear implants.
When the City of Celina was under an EPA fine and mandate to replace or retrofit the water treatment plant, Angie complied information and initiated a visit to Washington D.C. Again, her persuasive advocacy got the ears of Washington legislators, and Celina received a $750,000 federal line item for their water plant. Angie will take that same energy and enthusiasm to Columbus to work for West Central Ohio.
Angie is a licensed Realtor and has been involved in buying, selling, and managing real estate for more than 25 years. She is a former board member of the Ohio Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, Ohio Housing Trust Fund Advisory Committee and is a current board member for West Ohio Community Action Partnership.
Angie and her husband, Mark, have been married for more than 30 years and have two adult children and three grandchildren. They are active members of New Life Christian Center.
