Special Election to replace Marcia Fudge in the 11th Congressional District, August 3, 2021. Early voting has started.

Marion Anita Gardner was selected to fill in for Ken johnson who was removed from Council earlier this year by the Ohio Supreme Court at the request of the Ohio Attorney General. Johnson is due to face trial starting July 19, 2021. Reclaim Ward 4 recruited Ms. Gardner and advocated for her to be selected from the 20 "applicants" for the job. She is not on the September 14 primary ballot, which is the best outcome for the residents of Ward 4. We choose out representitives and are against the current system of having them appointed.
