An Interview with David Brannon
We sat down and interviewed David Brannon, candidate for Montgomery County Probate court judge. David talked about some key initiatives he plans to implement as probate judge, which is refreshing to hear from a judicial candidate. He also discussed some issues that are important to Reconstructing Dayton, such as consolidating the municipal courts in Montgomery County and the odd partisan structure of judicial races. We’re not endorsing any judicial candidates, but we do think you should give this article a read before committing to either Arvin Miller or David Brannon.

We interviewed Zach Dickerson, candidate for Montgomery County Clerk of Courts. Based on our interview, research, and other interactions with Zach, we feel confident that he would make for a better Clerk than incumbent Mike Foley. We also believe that he would be more receptive to big ideas that would make the Clerk’s office run more efficiently and save taxpayers money. Therefore, we will be endorsing Zach Dickerson for Montgomery County’s Clerk of Courts.
