Two longtime Stark County elected leaders, Jackson Township Fiscal Officer Randy Gonzalez and Stark County Clerk of Courts Louis P. Giavasis, recently announced their endorsement of Nan Whaley for Governor.
“I’m endorsing Nan Whaley because Ohio needs a Governor who understands the challenges and opportunities of our local communities,” said Gonzalez. “We need a fresh face with bright, bold new ideas who will get things done for Stark County and Ohio. And that’s Nan.”
Gonzalez has served as Jackson Township Fiscal Officer for over 20 years and is the former Stark County Democratic Party Chair. Giavasis served as Plain Township Trustee for 23 years and is now Stark County Clerk of Courts, a post he’s held since 2015.
“As a Mayor, Nan Whaley understands our communities, and she understands boots-on-the-ground government,” said Giavasis. “Nan will be a Governor who helps local communities in Stark County and all across Ohio. We don’t need another politician from Columbus or Washington D.C., Ohio needs Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley as our next Governor.”
Nan Whaley issued the following statement in response:
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of these tremendous local leaders,” said Whaley. “Our communities have been left behind by politicians at the Statehouse, and Ohioans want change. Momentum is growing for our campaign and, with support from leaders across this state, we’ll work together to ensure Ohio’s best days are ahead of us.”
