Since 2013, Joyce Beatty has proudly represented the Third Congressional District of Ohio, which is wholly contained within Franklin County and consists of 29 municipalities including Columbus, Bexley, Whitehall, Reynoldsburg and Gahanna. 

As a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congresswoman Beatty serves on the powerful Financial Services Committee. She is a member of the Subcommittees on Housing and Insurance and Oversight and Investigations. During her time in Congress, Beatty has focused on bringing Central Ohio to Washington, and Washington to Central Ohio.

Since her election in 2012, Beatty has been delivering for the residents of the Third Congressional District and Ohio. In 2014, Beatty brought then-Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Donovan to the District to announce a $225 million project to revitalize the Near East Side, led by $30 million in federal funds, and her leadership was pivotal in securing nearly $4 million in federal funds to address Columbus’ infant mortality rate, which is one of the highest in the country. 

In 2016, Beatty played a major role in helping the City of Columbus win the Department of Transportation's (DOT) $40 million Smart City Challenge, a nationwide competition to transform one city's transportation network and make it safer, easier to use and more reliable.  

Congresswoman Beatty is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, Women's Caucus, Congressional Heart and Stroke Coalition, and the Financial and Economic Literacy Caucus. In addition to her committee and caucus membership, she serves as a Regional Whip for Region 10.

Prior to her service in U.S. House of Representatives, Beatty was selected by her peers to serve in the 27th House District of the Ohio House of Representatives in 1999. She served five terms in the Ohio General Assembly, and rose to become the first female Democratic House Leader in Ohio’s history. In the Ohio House, she was instrumental in passing legislation that improved the climate for economic development in the state. Beatty supported local home ownership; fought foreclosures; championed STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), passed groundbreaking financial literacy legislation and worked to help women without insurance receive lifesaving cancer screenings.

After leaving the Ohio House in 2008, Beatty joined The Ohio State University as Senior Vice President of Outreach and Engagement where she promoted community, business and economic development; advocated for healthcare collaborations; and led the University’s global initiatives.

Congresswoman Beatty graduated with a B.A. from Central State University, received her M.S. degree from Wright State University, and completed all but her dissertation for a doctorate at the University of Cincinnati. In addition, she has received two honorary doctorate degrees from Ohio Dominican University and Central State University.

Beatty is a sought after public speaker and Ebony Magazine named her one of the 150 most powerful African-Americans in the United States. Beatty is active in The Links, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Columbus Urban League, The American Heart Association—where she previously served on the board—and numerous other organizations.

Rep. Beatty is married to Otto Beatty, Jr., an attorney, businessman and former Ohio State Representative, and she is a proud grandmother.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
