Despite vow to withdraw, Engler still on ballot

Despite telling the Mahoning County Democratic Party central and executive committees less than two weeks ago that he was withdrawing as a candidate for a seat on the 7th District Court of Appeals, David Engler is still on the ballot.

And he doesn’t appear to be withdrawing anytime soon.

“I’m not campaigning, but I’m pausing because I’ve heard some troubling information about the judicial races,” Engler told The Vindicator on Wednesday. “I’m further exploring this troubling information about improper involvement. That’s all I can say at this time. I’ve paused my process.”

Engler, a county educational service center board member and former county commissioner, said he doesn’t know when he’d make a final decision on the race.

At the Feb. 22 county Democratic endorsement meeting, Engler said he was withdrawing from the race “to redouble my efforts into representing my clients who have faced severe loss and are looking for justice.”

Engler’s comments Wednesday led county Democratic Party Chairman David Betras to say: “David Engler has problems keeping his word. He stood up in front of 400 people and said he had withdrawn. He texts me to tell me he’s withdrawing. I can’t trust anything he says, nor can the voters.”
