  • State Rep. Christina Hagan, R-Marlboro Township, has been named as one of 11 members nationwide to serve on the Mitt Romney presidential campaign’s National Advisory Board for the Young Americans for Romney Leadership Team.
    One board member is Jeb Bush Jr., son of former Florida governor Jeb Bush and nephew of former president George W. Bush. The board and team is made up of Romney supporters 40 and younger, according to Talking Points Memo. Hagan is 23. Several board members come from swing states such as Ohio, Florida and New Hampshire.
    Hagan said a Romney campaign official asked her last month to join the board.
    Romney’s campaign site said “this team will work with prominent young leaders from across the country to help spread the message about why Mitt Romney is the best choice for America’s future.”
    “It’s a compliment they believe in my ability to rally the youth behind hopefully the future president,” Hagan said Saturday at the opening of the Romney campaign office in Plain Township.
    She said the campaign told her it’s still working on determining her specific role.
    “I know that he is the right choice. ... because he is the Republican candidate,” Hagan said. “I think that he’s our shot at turning the country around. He’s going to offer pro-business common-sense regulations to turn our state around. He’s going to return freedoms back to Americans where they belong to make choices about their health care.”
    Stark County Commissioner Janet Weir Creighton, who actively supported George W. Bush’s presidential campaign in 2000 and 2004, said she has agreed to serve on Romney’s Women’s Advisory Committee.
