Dem gubernatorial running mate makes stop in Warren


Atty. Sharen Neuhardt, named last week by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed Fitzgerald to replace his previous running mate as lieutenant governor, said there is more to her support for women’s issues besides the hot-button topic of abortion.

“Women’s issues are Ohio economic issues,” Neuhardt said during a campaign stop Saturday at Café 422. “When we reduce every woman’s issue to abortion, we do a disservice to the women of this state.”

Neuhardt, 62, was selected by Fitzgerald after his lieutenant governor candidate, state Sen. Eric Kearney, withdrew from the ticket after extensive publicity about his large and unpaid tax debts. A business lawyer from Yellow Springs near Dayton, Neuhardt introduced herself to Trumbull County Democrats at a brunch funded by the re-election campaign of county Commissioner Frank Fuda.
