Clair remains active in local politics

Not surprisingly, former Lake County Elections Board Director Janet F. Clair continues to be active in the political world.

The veteran elections official retired in November after 28 years of service with the county agency.

A Painesville Republican, Clair is the co-chairwoman of the Lake County Republican Party and will now serve as the campaign chairwoman for Painesville Republican Lori DiNallo, the GOP’s candidate for Ohio House of Representatives District 60. DiNallo also serves as a Painesville councilwoman at large.

Lake County Commissioner Daniel P. Troy of Willowick is the Democratic Party’s nominee to run for the district’s seat in the Ohio House of Representatives in Columbus. It’s a place Troy knows well as he served seven terms in the state House from 1983 through 1996.

The Ohio 60th House district starting in 2013 will consist of Eastlake, Fairport Harbor, Grand River, Lakeline, Mentor Ward 4, Mentor-on-the-Lake, Painesville, parts of Painesville Township, Timberlake, Wickliffe, Willoughby and Willowick.
