County Republicans Open 2016 Campaign Headquarters In Medina
Larry Cray, Pam Smith and Patty Pietrasz talk about the November election during the grand opening of the campaign headquarters for the Medina County Republican Party.
Republican Party Chairman Chuck Calvert is surrounded by several other party officials and candidates as he cuts a ribbon to mark the opening of the campaign headquarters for the Medina County Republican Party.
MEDINA Running for election is hard work and many candidates need all the support they can get.
Those registered as Republicans are grateful for the help of the Medina County Republican Party, which opened a campaign headquarters Aug. 17 in an effort to organize support for GOP candidates in the November election.
Heading the effort is new party chairman Chuck Calvert, who says Republicans running for office this year are counting on the help of dozens of volunteers to promote candidates for county, state and federal office.
The partys headquarters is located at 951 North Court St. in the Medina Shopping Center. The office will be staffed by volunteers from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays through the election Nov. 8.
Party faithful can drop in to pick up literature outlining the background and positions of Republican candidates or pick up yard signs to demonstrate their support of favored candidates.
Missing were campaign signs for presidential candidate Donald Trump, who Calvert said had not yet supplied literature and yard signs for the county party.

Hambley Running For State House Dirham For Auditor Werner For Judge
MEDINA Some familiar names in Medina County politics will be seeking election this year but not necessarily to offices they have held in the past.
Among those candidates is Medina County Commissioner Steve Hambley who is now running for the State House, Medina Finance Director Keith Dirham who is running for county auditor and former Brunswick Mayor Gary Werner, who is running for common pleas court judge.
Werner is running against another well-known name but not the person most people think of when they hear it. The Democratic candidate for common pleas judge will be Joyce Kimbler, wife of longtime judge James Kimbler, who recently announced he will not run again after serving on the county bench since 1997.
Werner will also have an opponent in the Republican primary. He is Mike Callow, an attorney from Wadsworth, who has also filed petitions with the Board of Elections to run for Kimblers spot on the bench.
Hambley has received the endorsement of Bill Batchelder to be his successor as state representative, a seat long held by the distinguished attorney from Medina who is barred from seeking re-election because of Ohios term limits for state officials.
Hambley is also facing a primary challenger from political newcomer Chris Sawicki of Medina. The winner in the May primary election for the 69th District seat in the State House will face Democrat Richard Javorek in November. Javorek is a retired school teacher from Lafayette Township.
