Amy Salerno (born October 17, 1956)〔(【引用サイトリンク】title= Amy Salerno's Biography )〕 is a former Republican member of the Ohio House of Representatives from 1995 through 2002. Her district consisted of a portion of Franklin County, Ohio. She was succeeded by Dan Stewart. Salerno has been a judge in the Franklin County Municipal Court in Columbus, Ohio, since February 2005.〔(【引用サイトリンク】 title=Judge Amy Salerno )〕
Salerno grew up in Boardman Township near Youngstown, Ohio, and graduated from Boardman High School. She graduated with a BA from Youngstown State University in 1979 and a JD from the Moritz College of Law at Ohio State University in 1982.
Salerno's political career began in 1993, when she was recruited by the Franklin County Republican Party to run for an at-large seat on the Columbus City Council. She narrowly lost that race. The next year, she successfully unseated 22-year Democratic incumbent Mike Stinziano to represent the 23rd District in the Ohio House of Representatives.〔
In the House, Salerno sponsored a bill establishing the crime of homicide by child abuse, with the same statutory penalty as murder. This was inspired by the 1996 killing of 3-year-old P.J. Bourgeois. His parents were charged with involuntary manslaughter instead of murder and each spent less than four years in prison after early probation. The bill was signed into law by Governor Bob Taft and served as a model for similar legislation around the US. Salerno appeared on the October 25, 2000 episode of ''The Oprah Winfrey Show'' to discuss the Bourgeois case and her proposed legislation.〔
Salerno left the House in 2002 because she was term-limited. After she lost the election for Franklin County clerk of courts, Governor Taft appointed her to the Franklin County Municipal Court. During Salerno's tenure, she was ranked as the worst judge in the Columbus Bar Association survey in 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2013.〔
