State Central Committee races on ballot

Three Findlay residents are running for State Central Committee seats in the May primary election. All three have competition.
The Republican and Democratic parties each have a State Central Committee. A man and a woman are elected to each party’s committee in each Ohio Senate district.
The central committees help coordinate political activity for the parties, and are responsible for events like voter registration drives, voter outreach at public events, fundraising, election-year activities, and picking a replacement should an elected official in their party be unable to finish a term.
Competing for the Republican woman’s committee seat in the 1st Senate District will be incumbent Cheryl Buckland, 1413 Forest Park, Findlay, and challengers Julia Horton, 702 Hickory Lane, Delta, and Joan Zimmerly, 11153 Sun Set Drive, Ottawa.
For the Republican man’s committee seat in the 1st District, incumbent Frank Guglielmi, 332 Pheasant Run Place, Findlay, is being challenged by James Horton, 702 Hickory Lane, Delta.
Brenda Griffith of 1216 Magnolia, Defiance, who holds the 1st District woman’s seat for the Democratic Party, will be unchallenged.
Two Democrats will compete for the man’s position. Incumbent Charles R. Gray, 833 E. Second St., Defiance, is being challenged by Jeffrey S. Detmer, 731 Lincolnshire Lane, Findlay.
