Robinson serves as a senior vice president for regional and site operations for City Year, Inc., an education nonprofit that partners with public schools to keep students on track to graduate.
In 2018, Rep. Robinson successfully flipped District 6 Democratic for the first time in nearly 40 years.

Robinson is running for reelection in 2020 to continue fighting to increase investment in Ohio schools, make it easier to start and grow a small business, and protect our healthcare.
A Northeast Ohio native, Rep. Robinson is a devoted husband and father of two, raising his family in Solon, OH. He learned the values of family, hard work, and service from his parents, watching them sacrifice to give his sister and him a chance at a quality education and a better way of life. Rep. Robinson
