Congratulations to Mariella van der Sluijs! Mariella, a triple major in political science, journalism, and data science, recently created a database during her internship with cleveland.com. The database, which compiles information from the Ohio Secretary of State's website, allows users to search for individual campaign donations made to political candidates in Ohio elections. Working with over 65,000 records, Mariella recoded variables, corrected data entries, and ran multiple tests before publishing the database for public use. It is now up and running, and you may check it out here
. Thank you, Mariella, for helping the election process become more transparent.
