This episode brings our listeners another community conversation with a first time candidate. Cate Berger is running to be the state representative of Ohio’s 41st district. We wondered what motivates first time candidates, and if elected, how they can bring change to Montgomery County.

Cate Berger is a committed Daytonian working across our community to make an impact on the every day life of all people who call here home. Cate believes she has the unique ability to bring real change to the issues that affect people and families of the 41st District of Ohio.

Cate has extensive work experience across broad sectors of our local economy including workforce development, healthcare, and education. As the daughter of a retired U.S. Naval Reserve Commander with 35 years in the defense industry, and the sister of a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy, Cate also strongly supports our military for not only the work they do abroad but also the impact of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base for many of our district’s families.

She was a member of Leadership Dayton’s Class of 2018 and Dayton Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 Class of 2019.
