Election results please Dem chairman Betras


YOUNGSTOWN — David Betras, the Mahoning County Democratic Party chairman, is not a quiet wallflower, so it should come as no surprise how pleased he is with the primary results.

“This means the Democratic Party has re-established its prominence as the political party in Mahoning County,” Betras said today, a day after the party’s primary.

At the top of his list of achievements, Betras said, is the solid victory by Youngstown Councilwoman Carol Rimedio-Righetti, the party’s endorsed candidate for county commissioner, over 12-year incumbent David Ludt.

Betras said he’s also pleased that a majority of precinct committee members who support him were elected. Among other things, the members will vote for party chairman next month.
