Mahoning County Democratic Party Chairman David Betras took a few moments to savor his re-election victory before turning his attention to those who opposed his candidacy.

At the top of the list was Mark Hanni, Democratic nominee for a county common pleas court seat.

Betras said of Hanni: “He will not be getting the support of the Democratic Party in this upcoming race. He will not be on any literature of the Democratic Party. He will not be part of the coordinated campaign.”

Hanni attended Saturday’s vote by precinct committee members. vote. He received 134 votes compared to 54 for Kolitsos and 3 for Rick Berger.

Kolitsos said Hanni didn’t tell him he was backing his candidacy, and wasn’t involved in his campaign.
