Staff Reports

DELAWARE – A coalition of law enforcement officials announced their support for Delaware County Prosecutor Carol O’Brien’s campaign to represent Ohio’s 12th District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The group of law enforcement officials includes:

· Russell Martin, Delaware County Sheriff

· Ken Oswalt, Former Licking County Prosecutor

· Tim Bailey, Marion County Sheriff

· Ray Grogan, Marion County Prosecutor

· Charles Howland, Morrow County Prosecutor

· Gary D. Bishop, Richland County Prosecutor

· Bambi Couch Page, former Richland County Prosecutor

The law enforcement coalition has rallied behind O’Brien’s campaign, citing her record as a prosecutor, and the need for a new approach from our representatives in Washington.

“I know Carol as a prosecutor with high integrity – someone who will uphold the law and defend the Constitution in Congress in the same manner she has done here in Ohio,” said former Licking County Prosecutor Ken Oswalt. “With everything we are seeing coming out of Washington these days, it’s important we send someone to Congress who knows what it means to represent the people – not just another politician.”

“I’ve known Carol from her years of experience as an attorney and a prosecutor,” added former Richland County Prosecutor Bambi Couch Page. “I know she possesses the vision, expertise and sound judgment to move this country forward as our representative in Congress.”

O’Brien, a prosecutor with over 35 years of trial experience, previously served as an Assistant Ohio Attorney General, serving as Chief Counsel of the Ohio Organized Crime Investigations Commission and Principal Attorney with the Corrections Litigation Section, where she represented State Corrections Officials and Officers in State and Federal Court litigation.

“I’m behind Carol 100%,” said Sheriff Bailey. “We worked together on a number of cases in the Organized Crime Investigations Commission that came to successful fruition with her efforts. Knowing how she works, and seeing her work as a county prosecutor, I have no doubt she will represent the values of our district, and bring the same level of toughness to Congress.”

O’Brien was previously endorsed by Auditor of State and Ohio Attorney General candidate Dave Yost, and Delaware County Sheriff Russell Martin.

“I am grateful and humbled by the continued outpouring of support for our campaign by the law enforcement community,” said O’Brien. “I look forward to continuing our work together to keep Ohio’s families and communities safe.”

VIEW PAC Endorses O’Brien for Congress
