About Shayla

Dear Voter,


Safe, accessible, and affordable communities are everyone’s right. I’m running for Franklin County Prosecutor to balance safety with freedom, and I seek your support and vote to champion this cause with me.


As a dedicated public servant, compassion and conviction guide me. My care extends from students to child care providers, aspiring law students, and healthcare workers. I promise to prioritize you, the people of Franklin County.


My campaign focuses on tackling violent crime, youth violence prevention, and advancing evidence-based justice to foster a fairer, more transparent system. With my experience and passion, I aim to transform our county into a model of public safety and systemic reform.


My public service record includes addressing Columbus’ housing, safety, and homelessness as a city attorney, and on the City Council, I’ve spearheaded significant legislative efforts. I’m committed to creating safe, inclusive communities, fighting gun violence, and enhancing public health and immigrant protections.


I’ve fought for neighborhood improvement, litigating environmental cases, and tackling local issues head-on. My vision is a prosecutor’s office responsive to Ohioans, prioritizing community partnership to craft policies that effectively prevent and reduce crime.


Supported by my husband, Corey, and a network of friends and allies, I’m ready to work with city and county leaders to reinforce our sense of community and safety.

I cherish this journey and invite you to be a part of it.


Warm regards,


Shayla Favor, Candidate for Franklin County Prosecutor
