Columbiana County magistrate announces appellate court candidacy
YOUNGSTOWN — Kathleen Bartlett of North Jackson has announced her candidacy for a seat on the 7th District Court of Appeals bench.
Bartlett is a magistrate in Columbiana County Common Pleas Court. She will run as a Republican for the seat recently vacated by Judge Mary DeGenaro who Gov. John Kasich appointed to the Ohio Supreme Court.
“Over my entire legal career ... I have emphasized my research and writing and believe that my talents would be well-suited for the court of appeals,” Bartlett said.
She will challenge Damian DeGenova, a magistrate in Struthers Municipal Court, for the Republican nomination.
