Michael P. Gamble (May 4, 1907 – November 4, 1992) was an Ohio Democratic Party politician and a member of the Ohio General Assembly. Formerly a Canton City Councilman, Gamble was elected to the Ohio House of Representatives in 1966. A member of the 107th Ohio General Assembly, Gamble was a member of the first state legislature following redistricting from the 1965 Voting Rights Act.[1] In 1968, Gamble lost reelection to Ross Heintzelman, cutting his House tenure to a single term.

Returning to Canton, he was elected as city treasurer, and served for a number of years. He also served as an alternative delegate for the 1972 Democratic National Convention. Gamble died in 1992, at the age of 85.[2]
