An Essay on the New American Character

By Jennifer Brunner

            Our new American character is being expressed by how we act in today’s times of great trial.  Often, we don’t fully understand who we are—what we are made of—until we are tested.  In the face of this worldwide pandemic, washing over us with the certainty of the evening tide, we have to figure out how best to act for ourselves and for each other.  And by acting according to our character, we may lend to this time in the life of our nation some greater meaning.

A message from Judge Jennifer Brunner:

We will get through this over time and it won't be easy.  It will take everyone doing their part.  We can do this because Ohioans are good at understanding and living the truth that we are all in this together.  

I will be active with my court in providing for a strong rule of law as the needs may arise relating to this situation.  In the meantime, my campaign for the Ohio Supreme Court will proceed online, with face-to-face interactions occurring when the spread of the pandemic is under control.  May you, your family, your neighbors and your friends be blessed with strength, courage and understanding during this time.  I will continue to work hard for you, keeping in mind the needs of every Ohioan as I strive to do my very best for you.  Please be safe.

A pair of Democrats seeking election to the Ohio Supreme Court out-raised their opponents in the period covered by their latest campaign finance reports.  Columbus appeals court Judge Jennifer Brunner, a former Ohio secretary of state, raised $123,838, ending with $139,515 on hand.  Democrats Michael Donnelly and Melody Stewart were elected in 2018 to what had been an all-Republican court. Victories by Brunner and O’Donnell this fall would give Democrats a majority of the seven seats for the first time in decades.
