Meet Our Candidates for the 2024 General Election

US President and Vice President

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

US President and Vice President

“To lead America, the land of possibilities, you need a vision for the future of what America can and should be…You’ve heard mine. I see a future where we defend democracy not diminish it. I see a future where we restore the right to choose and protect other freedoms, not take them away. I see a future where the middle class finally has a fair shot and the wealthy finally have to pay their fair share in taxes. I see a future where we save the planet from the climate crisis and our country from gun violence.

Above all, I see a future for all Americans. I see a country for all Americans.

Because I believe in America. I believe in you, the American people…

Let’s build that future together!”

US Congress

Sherrod Brown

US Senator

“A lifelong Ohioan, Senator Sherrod Brown has spent his career fighting for the Dignity of Work – the idea that hard work should pay off for everyone, no matter who you are, where you live, or what kind of work you do. He has held nearly 500 roundtables across Ohio, because he believes the best ideas don’t come out of Washington – they come from conversations with Ohioans. Senator Brown serves as Chairman of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. He also serves on the Finance Committee, the Agriculture Committee, and is the longest serving Ohioan on the Veterans’ Affairs Committee.”

Samantha Meadows

US Representative Precinct 2

“I am running for Congress because I want to make a positive difference in the lives of lower and middle-income American workers. Living in rural Southern Ohio, I have seen and experienced the complex issues of this region all my life. My mission is to bring actual, positive change to the quality of lives in our part of the country. The voices of Southern Ohio need to be heard on a national level because they have been quieted for so long. Americans are strong people. We care about one another. We fight for one another, not against one another. It is time that we look to all fellow Americans as brothers and sisters. We all want the same things: respect, opportunity, equality, and the right to pursue our dreams.

I will always fight for policies that support and uplift rural America.”

Ohio Supreme Court

Melody Stewart

Ohio Supreme Court

“Elected in 2018, Justice Stewart is an experienced member of  the Ohio Supreme Court. During her campaign, she was  “Highly Recommended” by local bar associations and was designated the highest rated Supreme Court Candidate by the Ohio State Bar Association.

Justice Melody Stewart has over 30 years of legal experience – ranging from civil litigation practice and teaching students at several Ohio law schools to being an appellate court judge and sitting by assignment on the Ohio Supreme Court prior to being elected to the Supreme Court.”

Michael Donnelly

Ohio Supreme Court

“Justice Michael P. Donnelly was sworn in to serve on the Ohio Supreme Court in January 2019 following his impressive landslide victory in the previous year’s statewide General Election. During his time on the bench Justice Donnelly’s independence, impartiality, insight, and knowledge have earned the respect of his colleagues, the legal community, and the citizens of Ohio. His thoughtful votes and well-reasoned opinions, including those rendered in the most consequential cases to come before the Court in decades, reflect his unwavering commitment to upholding the Constitution and ensuring that every person receives equal treatment under the law.”

Lisa Forbes

Ohio Supreme Court
“The  Supreme Court is the last line of defense for individual rights and freedoms here in Ohio. I’m proud to serve on the Eighth District Court of Appeals, which is the last stop for justice in Cuyahoga County.  Prior to my election, I spent my career arguing complex and nuanced cases in state and federal courts all across the state of Ohio.  My experience on the bench and practicing law has taught me the critical importance of having judges who have a variety of experiences to bring a broad perspective to the Court.  I have the experience and expertise, and will bring the heart and hard work necessary to ensure that the last line of defense is fair and efficient.”

Ohio Legislature

Shane Marcum

OH Senator District 14

As a retired Marine, a small business owner, and a patriot, Shane is committed to making our government work for the working class. A veteran of all kinds of blue collar jobs – from working as a janitor to working in a paper mill, he’s tired of hearing the needs of hardworking Americans be dismissed by their government officials, and he’s ready to make the issues of his fellow Ohioans the priority at the State House.

Katie Vockell

OH Representative District 62

“I’m a mother, an advocate, a problem solver, and a candidate for Ohio State Representative. I’m running for office because I believe Ohio needs people, not politicians. People who are willing to work hard for everyday issues that matter to the district. Issues like jobs, taxes, education, school funding, and the right to make their own medical decisions. “

Tracey McCullough

OH Representative District 63

Tracey is a retiree of the Clermont County Public Library where she worked to connect communities to literacy experiences, especially in the realm of early literacy which is one of her passions. Tracey believes that everyone should have equal access to jobs, education, healthcare, and their own pursuit of happiness without government interference.

“I am running for State Representative for District 63 because our democracy is at risk and the biggest threats are happening at the state
level. District 63 deserves someone who cares about all people, not just those that fit within the GOP ideology.”

Clermont County

Brad Combs 

Clermont County Commissioner

“Good governance means meeting constituents where they are, communicating with them, and always having open two-way conversations about what can or cannot be done and, more importantly, why. It also means holding yourself accountable to all of your constituents, not just the ones who donate to you or promise you their vote. Clermont county deserves true representation – at all levels of government.

Now more than ever, politics is local.”

Jen Mazzuckelli

County Commissioner

Jen Mazzuckelli is running against incumbent David Painter for Clermont County Commissioner. She is a writer, educator, and life-long learner who joined this race because she believes that county government should be more proactive in finding innovative solutions to issues like homelessness, affordable housing, poverty, and substance abuse. She will work to restore transparency and strengthen community relations in Clermont County.

Diane Fisher 

County Recorder

“I am running for Clermont County Recorder because transparency matters, because who writes history matters, because community care requires action and connection.

I understand the history of the county recorder’s office, its importance and necessity within the US system. I have the necessary skills to oversee its effective function, and a commitment to serve the office and you for the next four years. “

Elizabeth Jones

County Clerk of Courts

“Elizabeth Jones is the Democratic candidate for the Clerk of Court of Common Pleas in Clermont County. She is eager to build relationships within Clermont County’s local government, and form a coalition with other officials who have the desire to justly serve all of the people of Clermont County. Elizabeth is an advocate for justice, and stands firm against corruption that deceives and disenfranchises the voters of Clermont County.”
