Challengers for the Ohio House will speak at Democrats' corn roast
Joe Romano, an attorney specializing in consumer protection and bankruptcy, and Monique Smith, a community activist and former marketing specialist, are both seeking the Democratic nomination for state representative for Bay Village, Westlake, Rocky River, Fairview Park and North Olmsted.
They will speak Wednesday, Sept. 18, at the annual corn roast sponsored by the Bay Village Democratic Club. Corn, hot dogs, soda, desserts and other goodies will be provided at no charge starting at 6 p.m. at the Bay Lodge, 492 Bradley Road.
Romano, a Bay Village resident, and Smith, a Fairview Park resident and former Lakewood councilwoman, both have launched early campaigns to unseat State Rep. Dave Greenspan, a Republican from Westlake in the 16th District. The primary election will be March 17.
Other candidates expected to attend the corn roast include incumbent Marty Mace and challenger Thomas Kelly, who are running in the Nov. 5 election for an at-large position on Bay Village City Council.
A number of judicial candidates for county and state courts have reported they will attend.
