Word from the Chair: three things this week can affect change

Do not be fooled by Mike DeWine. His power grabbing “compromise” to get Biden on the ballot is a flat-out attempt to strip citizens of our power. As we put ballot measures up to voters — reproductive rights, marijuana and now Citizens Not Politicians — DeWine is attempting to undermine the voters’ will and power by thwarting the gerrymandering initiative. Getting the President on the ballot must “cost” us something. DeWine doesn’t care that he was elected to serve Ohio but has opted instead to overrule voters and impose his will.  Since when does it cost voters to vote for the President of their choice? Apparently now, as Ohio’s extreme Republicans make another attempt to undermine democracy – even as, just hours ago, the ballot situation has been resolved at the national level.

We will fight back. There are three things that you can do this week.

  1. Join the Facebook group called  “How Things Work at The Statehouse.” Not only does Rachel Coyle, the group’s leader, inform about statehouse legislation, she issues the appropriate calls to action.
  2. Join us for the first Day of Action in Clermont County on Sunday, June 2. Sherrod Brown’s campaign, which is also called the “Coordinated Campaign,” has begun working out of our new headquarters. The Coordinated Campaign will work with all candidates but will focus on statewide candidates. We must re-elect Senator Sherrod Brown, Justice Michael Donnelly, and Justice Melody Stewart and elect Judge Lisa Forbes to Ohio’s Supreme Court. Talking to voters is the single best way to get them to the polls and vote our way.
  3. Share this newsletter with two like-minded friends and neighbors. Often Democrats feel alone in Clermont County but that is simply untrue. Let’s be sure to connect via this newsletter, an upcoming event or on the doorsteps. Our power grows exponentially with a strong network.

Chair, Clermont County Democratic Party

In a nutshell: the role of Clerk of Court of Common Pleas

Elizabeth Jones, pictured here, is the Democratic candidate for the Clermont County Clerk of Court of Common Pleas. The Clerk oversees Civil, Criminal and Domestic Relations divisions.

The Civil Division oversees civil cases of Administrative Appeals, foreclosures, personal injury suits, and garnishments where the monetary issues exceed $15,000. Clerk responsibilities include initiating and maintaining case files, collecting and distributing costs & filing fees, and assisting in seating both petit and grand juries.

The Criminal Division issues summons and arrest warrants for all felony indictments returned from a grand jury. It executes bail

bonds and is responsible for the arraignment docket, the assignment of judges to cases, the reporting of convictions, the notification of driver license suspensions to the BMV, and the collection and distribution of all costs, fines, and restitution.

The Domestic Relations Division deals with marital issues (divorce, dissolution, legal separation, annulment), child support issues (child custody, visitation, child and spousal support), and non-criminal domestic violence cases.  The Clerk initiates and maintains case files and collects and distributes filing fees and costs. The Clerk offers assistance in filling out a petition for a protection order.
