The Summit County Democratic party will not, after all, be having a contest for Summit County Recorder. The party has received word that one of the candidates is withdrawing.

Summit County’s recorder has resigned. That means there could be a contest for an elected county position on this November’s ballot.

This year, two Summit County council members and four elected department heads, filed for re-election.   

The candidates drew no opposition, so there’s no contest for those positions this November.

But now County Recorder Mary Ann Trussell has resigned, as of July 1st.

Last week, the County Council passed a Resolution honoring her for her service.


The only official write-in candidate running in a County race this year, Walter Brock, is vying for the newly combined office of Summit County Recorder/Surveyor. Rick Brough has more.

The Republican contender for Summit County Recorder, Vicki Richards, says she has the knowledge and experience for the job. She says she can lead a Recorder's office that can keep up, not catch catch up. Rick Brough has more.
