Meet Joe

A native son of the Mahoning Valley, Senator Joe Schiavoni grew up on the South Side of Youngstown before moving to Boardman, where he graduated from Boardman High School.

Joe attended Ohio University where he worked toward his degree while spending his summers back home in the Valley working at a local butcher shop. He then earned his law degree from Capital University.

Following law school, Joe was admitted to the Ohio Bar Association. Following in the footsteps of his Grandfather and Father, he went to work representing injured workers at the law firm Schiavoni, Schiavoni, Bush and Muldowney.

In 2008, Joe was appointed to a vacant seat in the Ohio Senate. He was then elected to a full, four-year term for his Senate seat in 2010 and reelected in 2014, serving as Minority Leader. 

As the Minority Leader, Joe fought to give everyone in the Valley a fighting chance, something he still does to this day. He is a member of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Mahoning Valley, the Mahoning County Bar Association, Curbstone Coaches, the local Farm Bureau, Boardman Civic Association, Italian-American Education Foundation, and the Legends of Leather Boxing Organization.
