Wow, what a win!

Wow, what a win!

On Tuesday, voters in Franklin County supported our call for a new generation of leadership and made John O'Grady the Democratic nominee for Franklin County Commissioner. It was an exciting race for change and YOU made the difference.

We're proud of the campaign we ran together. We focused on our vision for Franklin County and the Five Point Plan we’ve developed for the county. We also worked with the 141 neighborhood leaders of the Democratic Party to demonstrate the unity of our Democratic family.

Now that we have a Democratic nominee for Franklin County Commissioner, it’s time to begin the fight for November. Republicans in Central Ohio are hungry for a win after a very long losing streak. We can’t let that happen.

We look forward to working with you every day to win on November 4th.

In victory,

Team O'Grady

John, Antoinette, Rory, Rafe, Denny, John, and Bryan

Here's a message from John O'Grady, the endorsed Democrat for Franklin County Commissioner. John has been working hard every day to earn your vote -- just like he will work hard every day as your next Franklin County Commissioner.

Dispatch voter's guide

Like John says, "You can't win 'em all. But you can come close!" Here's the Dispatch's voter guide on the Franklin County Commissioner race.

Biography: 43; Franklin County clerk of courts, 2001-present; administrator for Ohio Treasurer Mary Ellen Withrow, nine years; small business owner, the Ringside Café, two years. Bachelor's degree in business, Ohio Dominican University requirements completed; graduates in June). Married, three children. Roman Catholic.

Main issues: “We are at a crossroads in our state and our nation. Down one path is a new era of cooperation and growth. Down the other is the divisive old status quo. It is my hope that voters will join me in bringing a new generation of leadership to our county and, with it, new jobs and opportunity for the workers and families of Central Ohio.”

What he would do in office: “We all want government that works effectively for everyone. As your clerk of courts, that's exactly what I've done. We are doing more with less, handling significantly more work with the same budgeting and staffing we had seven years ago. I will bring the same values and focus as a Franklin County commissioner.”

It's no wonder John has the unanimous endorsement of the neighborhood leaders of our local Democratic Party!
