No one steps forward to challenge Judge Sweeney



Published: Fri, August 1, 2014 @ 5:11 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The Mahoning County Democratic Party will not field a candidate against Judge Maureen Sweeney of common pleas court as no one stepped forward to replace Mark Hanni on the ballot.

Party Chairman David Betras had given applicants until 5 p.m. today to submit letters of interest for the seat. He received none.

“I didn’t think anyone would,” Betras said. “Incumbent judges seem to always win unless their opponent can spend a lot of money.”

Hanni withdrew from the race July 25.

No Democrat challenger?? Doesn't have anything to do with the fact that Sweeney gave a 65,000 year court job to Dave's brother-in-law??
