Profile: Connie Blohm
Treasurer



Born in Havana, Cuba, Connie moved to New York City as a teenager where she completed her education and attended Queens College of the City University of New York, with a BS degree in Accounting. She worked as a Media Planner at J Walter Thompson Advertising Agency in NYC and after marriage moved to Hamburg, Germany, where she became a "HausFrau" and her two children were born. After seven years in Hamburg, they returned to NYC for two years, and 30 years ago moved to Hudson, Ohio, where her children grew up and attended Hudson schools. She then attended Kent State for a Masters in Education and taught Spanish at Stow High School for 20 years.

Being involved with current events, locally and globally, has been a passion which she inherited from her parents ! She worked as an Advance Person for Senator James Buckley of New York during his election campaign and with her mother toured many schools and organizations on Long Island where they spoke about the history of Cuba which was very prevalent in the news in those days.

Inspired by friends who are members of LWV, she joined five years ago in her interest to learn and be involved in educating citizens on the utmost importance of voting and actively participating in our democracy. She is forever grateful to this grand country that welcomed her and her family in the early 1960's and became their home.

Her most important achievement is being a proud grandmother of an 11 year old grandson and a baby granddaughter!
