This just In !!


For immediate release

August 3, 2006 - Columbus, Ohio - Yesterday, the Plain Dealer’s website reported comments from Ohio GOP Chairman, Bob Bennett, assailing Democratic Ohio Secretary of State candidate Jennifer Brunner for an innovative business plan to help businesses create more jobs for Ohioans. The Plain Dealer characterized Bennett’s comments as “doing the dirty work” for her opponent, the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts, who remained silent in the attack.

“It’s hard to believe Bob Bennett can even talk about, let alone criticize, someone else’s management skills. That glass house he lives in is mighty thin,” said Brunner, noting that as chairman of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections and responsible for overseeing an election for approximately one million voters, no unofficial results could be provided for at least five days after the May 2, 2006 primary election. A 398-page report was released in late July by an oversight committee who performed a top to bottom review of the May 2006 election resoundingly criticizing the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections for its management of the election.

Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, the Ohio GOP nominee for Governor, has promised his own investigation of the problems of the May 2006 election in Cuyahoga County, but no action has been announced since Blackwell let the Cuyahoga County Board (headed by the state GOP Chairman, Bennett) investigate itself with a self-appointed oversight committee.

“I will manage the Secretary of State’s office 100 times better than Bob Bennett can oversee an election in Cuyahoga County or than Ohio Republicans have done managing and overseeing the operations of the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation,” Brunner said.

Brunner’s opponent cites management experience for the west coast division of a company whose license is suspended by the State of California, is a former executive director of the Hamilton County Republican Party and was appointed Hamilton County Clerk of Courts. Like Ken Blackwell, he served as chairman of President Bush’s reelection campaign in 2004, in Hamilton County. Like Ken Blackwell, Brunner’s opponent is running while holding a public office he apparently does not want after just being elected in 2004 and leaving day-to-day operations in staff’s hands while he travels the state. Like Ken Blackwell, Brunner’s opponent allowed Ohioans’ private information to be placed on his website, placing them at peril for identity theft. Public access to much of his website is currently suspended following multiple federal identity theft indictments stemming from use of the private information found online in his office records. Brunner’s identity theft plan would protect Ohioans from these and other problems.

Jennifer Brunner is a retired judge from the Franklin County Common Pleas Court who resigned her position in 2005 to run for Ohio Secretary of State. She worked with a 60-person task force in forming Franklin County’s first adult felony drug court, initiating and operating the program that the Ohio Supreme Court uses as a model for other courts that want to develop specialized dockets. Prior to being elected twice as a judge in Franklin County, she served as a deputy director in the Ohio Secretary of State’s office and as a member of the Franklin County Board of Elections. She holds 13 years private practice experience as an elections lawyer with a statewide practice. She was nominated by the Ohio Democratic Party in May with no opposition and enjoys support among Democrats, Republicans and independents.

Jennifer Brunner is committed to providing free, fair, open and honest elections to the citizens of Ohio. Additional information on Jennifer Brunner and her campaign for Ohio Secretary of State may be found at JenniferBrunner.com

the smaller geographically the congressional district, the less the DCCC put in. It has to do with television and radio coverage. Zack Space's district, for example, is the largest in Ohio, and span southern and eastern Ohio.
