  • Village of Northfield Council at Large, Jenn Domzalski, and Gary C. Vojtush, Sr.

Scott Gale was on the ballot in Sagamore Hills but withdrew from the race.  See article here about how he announced his withdrawal. For some reason his name was not removed from the ballot.

Northfield Center asked the voters for money so that they can purchase the old Merit Bank building. But 71% of the voters said NO!

The only two communities that had heated political races were Macedonia and the Village of Northfield. Both communities had council censures. Kevin Bilkie, a Macedonia Council incumbent and Keith Czerr, a mayoral candidate both were censured.

There was a lot of chatter on social media about both races. The Nordonia Rotary Club hosted a Meet the Candidates at one of their lunch meetings.
Watch the video here.

And we even had some of the candidates sit down and record podcasts with us.
You know it is going to be an interesting podcast when a candidate brings his guitar.
