Meet Will


My name is Will Petrik, and I'm a member of Yes We Can Columbus. 

I'm running for Central Committee in the 18th Ward, because I believe that all Columbus residents deserve a living wage, great schools, affordable housing, quality child care, and health care.

I’m interested in building community and having conversations with residents about ways to improve the Old North, Clintonville, and Columbus. 

I have experience building coalitions to advocate for solutions that make a difference in people’s lives. As State Director of Advocates for Ohio’s Future, I helped lead the statewide effort to pass Medicaid expansion in Ohio. As a result, over 500,000 Ohioans now have health care coverage. 

I also like to sing, dance, walk, bike, play guitar, and meet passionate people.
