WKYC Staff, Jake Zuckerman (Ohio Capital Journal), WKYC |

Amherst resident Kirsten Hill released a statement to 3News on Wednesday titled “Kirsten Hill goes to Washington” and laid out the reasons why she decided to go to the rally on January 6. 

She condemned the violence that took place at the Capitol, but felt it is “best to wait for official investigations to be completed before assigning absolute responsibility for any lawlessness.”

In the statement, Hill says “My participation at the event consisted of listening to President Trump’s speech, walking to the Capitol, praying at a street corner along the National Mall, and waving my American flag in support of our great country.”

Hill is an elected school board member, with her term expiring in 2022. She represents the area including Fulton, Lucas, Wood, Ottawa, Erie, Huron and Lorain counties.
