She lives for positive change.
Alaina Shearer is a business owner, a mother, but above all, she is an American who is running to bring people together to solve our country’s biggest problems, make government function effectively for real hardworking people, and ensure our children are better off than the generations before them.
In her life, Alaina has faced personal loss, single motherhood, near bankruptcy as a business owner, and sexual harassment. But in every case, she has picked herself back up, turning each challenge into a lesson-learned and a new opportunity. She has fought to forge a path not only for herself, but for all others behind her.
Today she is the leader of a national movement for women, the mother of four, and a thought leader in bringing about cultural change. After everything she’s been through, Alaina has zero tolerance for the behavior of today’s average Washington politician. She is ready to meet their continued inaction and partisan fighting head-on with her positive, action-oriented leadership.
Alaina’s strength is bringing people together toward a common goal. In this case, her mission is to bring true representation to Washington for the people of Ohio’s 12th Congressional District. She will bring compromise and action to Washington.
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
The actions, or more accurately – the inactions – in Washington D.C. affect everything that we all do every day. As a result we are raising our kids into an uncertain future, we are growing businesses in an uncertain economy and always facing surprise healthcare costs. These are a lot of really big, tough issues. But this is what I love to do. I am a problem solver and I bring people together.
I am fighting to truly represent our district. And I’m filled with optimism because the truth is – we actually agree on so much more than you would ever imagine. We can do this, District 12.
Alaina believes healthcare is a basic human right. She also believes Americans should always have choice, freedom, and independence in choosing a healthcare plan that works for them and their families. Alaina knows businesses need relief as they face, right along with their employees, the mounting costs of healthcare. She believes the Affordable Care Act, was a step in the right direction but there is much more work to do to truly make healthcare affordable in this country.
Economy & business growth
Alaina built her two businesses from the ground up. She understands that decisions in Washington can take a major toll on our community’s business, large and small. She will work for innovative solutions that help grow local businesses and provide quality, good-paying jobs through innovation, supporting trades, and standing up for aspiring and existing local business owners.
Family balance & paid leave
Happy, healthy families make for thriving businesses. As a business owner and a mother, Alaina is a fearless advocate for working Ohio families and small businesses. From flexible work hours and paid family leave – a family’s rights are workers’ rights. But small business owners should not and cannot bear the entire cost of such initiatives. Alaina believes we have only just begun shaping the world for modern working families.

“Never in my life have I ever shied away from a challenge. After losing my father to cancer, after becoming a single mother, and now after building a women’s movement that has changed thousands of lives – I am ready to bring my spirit and my passion for change to Washington D.C. in order to improve the lives of Ohio families and business owners.”
