Benjamin Carman

Hey Dems! Back by popular demand, Member Mondays are now every week. Get excited to meet a new member every Monday!
Meet Benjamin Andrew Carman, a freshman from Alliance, Ohio studying Computer Science and Mathematics in the Honors Tutorial College! Issues Ben is passionate about include: equality regardless of gender, color, or class, gun control, redistricting reform, universal healthcare, and criminal justice reform including the abolishment of capital punishment. Ben has seen the importance of criminal justice reform through his four years of community service at the Stark County Family Court. Having been a part of countless juvenile cases, he has seen the effectiveness of second chances, individualized sentencing, and the prioritization of rehabilitation over retribution. Outside of his involvement in OUCD, Ben is also an intern on Student Senate where he serves on the University Life Commission. Additionally, Ben is a member of the Singing Men of Ohio and University Singers and is a saxophonist too. As an Eagle Scout passionate about progressive issues, Ben is incredibly excited to continue his involvement in the Athens community through College Democrats and otherwise.
