What's "new" with Ds and Rs?

South Russell Village's Bill O’Neill, who's a Democrat running this fall vs. U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette, R-Bainbridge Township?

O'Neill announces Mark Ditz as this fall’s "new" campaign manager succeeding, yes, O’Neill, who was his own campaign manager in the May primary.

Ditz once campaigned for former Gov. Dick Celeste, Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court candidates and Juvenile Court Judge Peter Sikora for Ohio Supreme Court.

P.S. On the GOP side, what's up with Highland Heights Ward 4 Councilman Lisa Marie Stickan?
Well, she's now the Young Republican National Federation chairperson. Same Stickan who's served numerous YR role regionally, statewide and nationally. Same Stickan, who’s a Cuyahoga County assistant prosecutor, as chairperson.
Item in this writer's Sunday column, ahem, was back on May 16: “News out yet that Stickan will the foundation’s next chairperson?”
When the Lake County Republican Party holds a mult-county gathering this summer, Stickan might be one of the headliners.
