Ohio House of Representatives
In 2004, Rep. Bryan C. Williams resigned, forcing House Republicans to find a successor. Eventually, Slaby was appointed to the vacancy, and was established as the candidate for the general election. However, she lost the general election to Brian Williams, a Democrat, by less than 300 votes.
Williams lost reelection in 2010, to Slaby's husband, Lynn Slaby. However, Lynn Slaby also resigned early. In early 2012, Lynn Slaby resigned to become a Public Utilities Commissioner. Marilyn Slaby was again appointed to the position. She was sworn into office on April 24, 2012, and serves on the committees of Economic and Small Business Development; Health and Aging; and Insurance.
Slaby won election to a full term in 2012 with 54.55% of the vote over Democrat Michael Kaplan.
