Ex-Ohio Communist Party leader advances to the general election for Cleveland City Council. An article posted on DaytonDailyNews.com says former Ohio Communist Party chairman Rick Nagin has advanced in the primary for the Cleveland City Council’s 14th Ward. Nagin is now a registered Democrat.
The article quotes Nagin saying, "My philosophical outlook is to stand up for working people… If elected, I would work not only very hard for my constituents but be a voice for organized labor."
The City Council race is non-partisan.
He faces off against Brian Cummins, who the article says is both a Democratic & Green Party member.
The two beat out five candidates for the seat including the incumbent.
