BEAVERCREEK — The Ohio Federation of Republican Women (OFRW) recently honored a Beavercreek Republican Women’s Club (BRWC) member at its Biennial Tribute to Women event in Columbus.
Jo Broughton, nominated by the BRWC, received the recognition. Carrie Almond, President of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) was present to assist in honoring Broughton.
“The women honored by the OFRW are outstanding examples of Republicanism in the OFRW and their local communities,” said OFRW President Lyn Bliss. “The Tribute to Women event honors unit club members who have given their time and talent to promote Republican candidates and values. In addition to supporting the election of excellent candidates — criteria for being honored may include things such as serving in government offices, accomplishing meaningful results in professional life, successfully rearing families and volunteering in civic and/or church organizations.”
Broughton is currently president of the BRWC, which distinguished itself in the recent presidential election by getting the largest Victory Center in Ohio for Donald Trump up and running. With only 48 hours notice it was ready to host Lara Trump and the campaign team. It was operated exclusively by women.
Broughton has worked on Mike DeWine’s campaigns from his run for Ohio State Senate through his election as Ohio Attorney General. She has helped Josh Mandel in several campaigns, including for his current position as Ohio state treasurer. She has supported the campaigns of Supreme Court Justices Pat DeWine, Pat Fisher, Sharon Kennedy, and Maureen O’Connor. She has worked for Representative Rick Perales and Senator Bob Hackett.
At the local level, Broughton worked on campaigns for former county commissioners Reed Madden, Kay Hagler, and Del Bone, and county auditor Luwanna Delaney.
