Career

A graduate of the University of Akron and Cleveland State University, Anielski was Mayor of Walton Hills, Ohio from 2000–2010, and served two years prior on the city council.[1]

Ohio House of Representatives

After Josh Mandel decided to vacate his seat in the Ohio House of Representatives to run for Ohio State Treasurer, Anielski won a crowded Republican primary to succeed him. She went on to win the general election in 2010 with 54.75% of the vote. Libertarian David Macko earned 5.56% and Democrat Kelli Perk won 39.69%.[2] [3]

In the campaign, Anielski gained press when she quit a pro-gun control group, which she cited shifted blame from criminals to law-abiding gun owners.[4]

Anielski was sworn into her first term on January 3, 2011. Soon after, Speaker of the House William G. Batchelder named her as a member of the Economic and Small Business Development Committee, the Education Committee, the Finance and Appropriations Committee and the Public Utilities Committee. She is also a member of the Joint Committee on Bingo and Skill Based Gaming.

Initiatives and positions

Along with Nan Baker, is carrying legislation initiated by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine that would enable regulators to oversee electronic sweepstakes and other "skill-based" games.[5] The legislation is in part a response to the newly enabled casinos that are coming to Toledo, Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland.[6] Ultimately, she has stated that current law allows many of the businesses that provide the services to get around paying taxes.[7] It also sets forth to regulate Internet sweepstake cafes, which many say abuse a loophole in state gambling law.[8]

Anielski was one of only two Republicans to oppose legislation that set forth to allow for drilling for oil and natural gas in state parks and other state owned lands.[9]
