Independent candidate David Krikorian is challenging incumbent Republican Jean Schmidt and Democratic challenger Victoria Wulsin in November’s Ohio Second Congressional District race.
Born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, Krikorian earned his undergraduate degree in economics and finance from Boston’s Bentley College before accepting a job as a financial analyst for Fidelity Investments.
After moving to Cincinnati in 2001, because it is a great place to live and raise his family – he lives with his wife and three children in Madeira – Krikorian is now a successful entrepreneur, owning and operating a novelty products company located in 10,000 retail locations across the country.
Krikorian has thrown his hat into the political ring because his background is in economics and finance, and his worst fears about what is happening in our country started to materialize in the last few years.
"I just felt compelled to get in and try and do something about it," he said. "I am running because the country needs people to step forward to represent the people instead of the political party; and we need people with the courage to tell the truth about what is happening."
Krikorian said that he wants to institute policies that are in the best interest of our country long-term, which he feels is not what our current representatives are currently doing.
As a professional local business owner who has spent his career working in finance, economics, and business, Krikorian decided to run for Congress as an independent because neither of the two political parties, Republican or Democrat, operate based on the "needs and the best interests of the people."
The first time he has run for elected public office, Krikorian has promised to be accountable to only the people of Ohio's second congressional district.
