  • Butler County Democratic Party Endorses Candidates

    Monday, March 19, 2018

    (HAMILTON-) The Butler County Democratic Party’s Executive Committee last Thursday unanimously endorsed all Democratic candidates running in uncontested primaries both at the State and local level.  In a separate vote, the Butler County Democratic Party’s Executive Committee endorsed State Issue 1- a state constitutional amendment to discourage partisan drawing of Ohio’s congressional districts and require bipartisan support to enact such districts.

    “Across the nation, voters are turning to the Democratic Party to bring change in areas the Republican Party has long taken for granted and we expect to see a similar turn here in Butler County after decades of the Republican Party’s broken promises and partisan rhetoric.  In every corner of the county, our Democratic candidates are fighting for those who believe if you work hard, you deserve to get ahead,” said BCDP Communications Director Brian Hester.  “We are the only party on record supporting reforms that make sure voters get to choose who represents them in Congress instead of letting well-funded politicians choose which voters they claim to represent instead.”

  • Kathy Wyenandt to run for Ohio Statehouse

    Friday, January 19, 2018 | Pulse Journal

    The reason why former Butler County Board of Elections member Kathy Wyenandt resigned her board seat last month is so she can run for office.

    Wyenandt told the Journal-News she will formally announce on Sunday afternoon at Grainworks Brewing Company that she will run against Ohio Rep. George Lang, R-West Chester Twp., who was appointed this past spring to the 52nd Ohio House District after Margy Conditt resigned.

  • The Teachings of MLK, Jr. in the Age of Trump

    Saturday, January 13, 2018

    On Monday, we celebrate the life of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., his legacy, and the movement he helped lead.  In just three months, on April 4th, will mark the 50th Anniversary of the tragedy of his assassination.  As such, we are at a point now in our country's history where a growing majority of Americans simply were not alive during Dr. King's life and feel only a connection to him through black and white photos, history lessons, and grainy film footage of his "I Have a Dream" speech on the March on Washington in front of the Lincoln Memorial.

    There is no doubt that Dr. King's voice thundered across this nation, and in moral indignation, torn apart the foundations of an amoral political system which systematically excuded and discriminated against African-Americans.  He bent the arc of a moral universal closer to justice.  But where does Dr. King, his philosophy, and his legacy connect to the issues of America today in the Age of Trump?

  • Susan Vaughn announces candidacy for 51st Ohio House District

    Tuesday, December 5, 2017 | Journal News

    Vaughn, a 67-year-old Democrat, will run against the three-term Republican in the November 2018 general election.

    She said she’s running because “ethics” has been the “first and foremost” issue people want to see improved.

    “Things I’ve seen happening worldwide have motivated me to want to do something, to bring us back to more values-based decision-making,” said Vaughn, Miami University’s director of the Office of Ethics and Student Conflict Resolution. “I think it impacts young people, and I think it has tremendous impact when we make decisions that are values-based.”

  • Middletown judge accused of campaigning in city newsletter

    Friday, October 13, 2017 | Journal News

     - Middletown may no longer allow the city court system to share information through city newsletters and inserts after some say a candidate for Municipal Court Judge used those resources to campaign for the November election.

    The discussion came after some complained that Middletown Municipal Court Judge Melynda Cook Howard used city-paid collateral to campaign for the upcoming election, according to an email sent by the city manager to city council.

  • Butler County Democrats target West Chester trustee with website

    Thursday, October 12, 2017 | Journal News

     -- Those who want to see West Chester Twp. Trustee Mark Welch lose in November have launched an opposition website while the candidate’s landing page is still “under construction.”

    Butler County Democrats launched MarkWelchForTrustee.orgon Tuesday, the day before early voting was set to start in Ohio. The landing page of Welch’s campaign site — MarkWelchForTrustee.com — indicated as of Thursday morning the site is not ready, but an Internet search found live links to the site’s pages.

    ...

    The opposition website consists primarily of news stories and court filings over the past four years, but Welch said the claims “are shallow” and involve “extenuating circumstances.”

    Butler County Democratic Party Executive Chairwoman Jocelyn Bucaro said “it’s time for a change” from the conservative township trustee’s leadership.

    “Welch has served his own interests while also allowing the fiscal officer to launch unrepentant public campaigns of sexism and hatred against West Chester residents,” she said. “The township is being run by special interests at the expense of West Chester families. It’s time to clean up West Chester government and start fresh with new leadership.”
