"Justice begins with each of us. When we seek justice, we must first examine our minds and our hearts.  Justice involves lifting up our shared hopes, history and heritage, respecting one another amidst our great diversity--and tolerance rooted in love. The result always will be greater than the sum of its parts. One of the greatest joys of public service is when this magic happens." 

- Judge Jennifer Brunner

Judge Jennifer Brunner Interviews Ashtabula County Judicial Candidate Marie Lane for Common Pleas Court Judge

 

 

L to R:  Ashtabula County Common Pleas Court Judicial Candidate, Marie Lane, and Judge Jennifer Brunner

As part of her ongoing series of interviews with judicial candidates throughout Ohio, Judge Jennifer Brunner interviewed Ashtabula County judicial candidate, Marie Lane about her 21 years of service as Ashtabula County's Chief Public defender, her work as a founding member of her county's felony drug court and her race for Common Pleas Court Judge in Ashtabula. 

Ohio's court system is self-regulating; that is, the Ohio Supreme Court oversees the operation of the entire state's court system.  As I campaign, I want to give you information about the state's judiciary.

There are many judges and judicial candidates who are running for trial and appellate courts throughout the state. I want you not only to know who your judges and judicial candidates are—I want to give you the opportunity with interviews of candidates like Kari, to determine for yourself their skills and backgrounds—so you can feel confident you are voting for candidates who are qualified to serve.

This is the second installment of our judicial series.  Over the course of the campaign, we'll be virtually traveling the state to safely introduce you to dedicated candidates and judges whose beliefs in a strong and responsive judiciary will help them earn your confidence as you learn about who they are and what they do. You can read more about Marie Lane at her website here.

Judge Jennifer Brunner Interviews Hamilton County Judicial Candidate Kari Bloom for Juvenile Court Judge

Yesterday, at our latest FLFL - Friday Lunch Facebook Live, Judge Jennifer Brunner interviewed Hamilton County Judicial candidate Kari Bloom, who just won her primary for Juvenile Court Judge about her work and experience working with juvenile justice and her campaign to become one of that county's two juvenile judges.  

Here's the video:  

 

As we wrote in our email to supporters leading up to the live broadcast:

Ohio's court system is self-regulating; that is, the Ohio Supreme Court oversees the operation of the entire state's court system.  As I campaign, I want to give you information about the state's judiciary.

There are many judges and judicial candidates who are running for trial and appellate courts throughout the state. I want you not only to know who your judges and judicial candidates are—I want to give you the opportunity with interviews of candidates like Kari, to determine for yourself their skills and backgrounds—so you can feel confident you are voting for candidates who are qualified to serve.

Here’s Kari Bloom’s background:
 
Kari Bloom holds experience over the last 10 years as an attorney working with juvenile offenders in the court she is running for.  Juvenile justice is Kari Bloom’s passion.  She interned with the Children's Justice Center as a student and became a juvenile delinquency trial attorney.  She has served the United States Air Force, negotiating contracts at Wright Patterson Air Force Base and she has worked a significant number of years as a public defender in Cincinnati.  Here are some of her plans for serving as a juvenile court judge—they include restorative justice components.

 We'll be interviewing judicial candidates from around Ohio throughout the campaign.  Know a judicial candidate whom you want to see interviewed?  Let us know and send us their contact information. We'll help get out news about the judiciary in Ohio and you can help a judicial candidate you support become better known.  We're all in this together.

US Senator Elizabeth Warren and the Warren Democrats Endorse Judge Jennifer Brunner

This just in from elizabethwarren.com:

"Warren Democrats is supporting Democratic candidates fighting for progressive change, mobilizing people to support those candidates and these ideas, and continuing to build the grassroots movement that Elizabeth Warren inspired. Here’s what Elizabeth has to say about these incredible candidates: 

 

JENNIFER BRUNNER | OHIO, SUPREME COURT

"In the wake of the financial crisis, Jennifer fought to hold Wall Street accountable. As Ohio’s first female Secretary of State, and while I was at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Jennifer alerted me about federal legislation that would have allowed big banks to cheat the American people even further. We worked together to put a stop to it, and President Obama vetoed the bill. At a time when civil rights, voting rights, and basic dignity are under constant assault, Ohioans deserve leaders who will stand for justice even if it means standing alone. I believe that Judge Brunner will serve the people of Ohio with courage and conviction as an Ohio Supreme Court Justice and that is why I am supporting her.'"

Judge Jennifer Brunner is the only judicial candidate in the nation supported by Senator Warren in her initial round of endorsements.
