New candidate for Columbiana County Commissioner

LISBON, Ohio -

There's a new candidate for Columbiana County Commissioner.

The county's Democratic Executive Board voted Thursday night to place Raymond Wagner, Jr.'s name on the November ballot. 

Wagner will replace Keith Merriman's name on the Democratic ticket. Merriman recently stepped out of the race. 

Wagner said he does not have much experience in politics, but is a former educator and worked on both the teaching and the administrative side. He talks about bringing balance to county leadership.

"We need balance not only locally, but nationally and sometimes decent is necessary," said Wagner. "I think we just need to listen to each other, listen to different viewpoints and I think that's very important at the local county level."

Wagner will run against incumbent Republican Mike Halleck.
