Former ODP Chairs back O'Grady

In another sign of John O’Grady’s strength as the endorsed Democrat for Franklin County Commissioner, Team O’Grady today announced the endorsements of five former Ohio Democratic Party Chairs. The following former chairs join current ODP Chairman Chris Redfern in actively supporting John’s candidacy:

Bill Lavelle – 1971-1974
Paul Tipps – 1974-1982
Jim Ruvolo – 1983-1990
Gene Branstool – 1991-1993
Harry Meshel – 1993-1995

“My dad, Pete O’Grady, helped lead the party with these great Democrats. It’s an honor to know that they support me as part of the new generation of leadership in our county and in our party,” said John O’Grady.

These former ODP Chairs join an impressive list of community members, business leaders, and elected officials who support John O’Grady as the endorsed Democrat for Franklin County Commissioner.
