About the Ninth Congressional District

The Ninth Congressional District stretches for 141 miles along Ohio’s wondrous Lake Erie coastline. The district is an amalgam of lake-hugging communities in Cuyahoga, Lorain, Erie, Ottawa and Lucas counties, from east to west.

Between Cleveland on the east and Toledo on the west rest communities large and small, from the steel city of Lorain to Oregon on the Maumee Bay. The Ninth District has both the most densely populated community in Ohio, Lakewood, and arguably the least—the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge.

It is home to:

  • Auto and auto parts factories in Parma, Brook Park, Avon Lake, Lorain, Sandusky and Toledo
  • Aerospace facilities such as NASA Glenn Research Center and Plum Brook Research Station
  • The country’s leading amusement park, Cedar Point
  • The alluring Lake Erie Islands
