WARREN — The Trumbull County Democratic Party today voted to endorse a few experienced politicians and a few newcomers who are running for a variety of seats on the May 3 ballot.
By endorsing a variety of candidates in area races, party precinct committee members are hoping to inject some excitement in the primary election.
Michael J. O’Brien, of Warren, who is running for Trumbull County commissioner, promised to bring stability to the position.
“I’m basically going to bring more stability to the commissioners office,” Michael J. O’Brien, former Warren mayor and current state legislator said. “I’ve served three terms as a commissioner. There needs to be a sense of mutual support for this office and I believe this campaign is about doing more for Trumbull County.”
Sean O’Brien of Bazetta is seeking to become a Trumbull County Common Pleas Court judge. Now armed with the Trumbull County Democratic party endorsement, he said he appreciates being able to talk about his ideas and experiences.
“The amount of support I’ve received has been humbling,” former state senator and state representative Sean O’Brien said. “I think people want a well rounded person on the bench that has worked as a prosecutor and a defense attorney, has worked with organizations, such as Inspiring Minds, and who has experiences working in the state legislature and state senate. I have worked hard to be able to cross party lines to get things done.”
