Attorney Casey O’Brien of New Lyme Township has filed petitions to run for
Judge of the Ashtabula Western County Court in November’s election.
“If elected, I will work hard to protect the citizens of Ashtabula County and I will not legislate
from the bench. My wealth of knowledge and experience, along with many volunteer positions,
have given me the ability to see both sides of most disputes and to observe the impact that the
Western County Court has on the everyday life for the citizens of Ashtabula County.“

for the Northern District of Ohio and the United States Tax Court.
