Democratic lawmaker Connie Pillich has chosen Marion Mayor Scott Schertzer as her pick for running mate in her bid for Governor of Ohio.
According to WBNS 10 TV, Connie Pillich said Schertzer's voice is important to her ticket because he has made tough choices under pressure as local communities have been left behind.
Pillich is running against four other Democratic contenders in the contest to succeed Republican Gov. John Kasich, who's term-limited.
Schertzer has been mayor of Marion since 2008 and is current president of the Ohio Municipal League. Before taking office, Schertzer spent 13 years as a public school teacher. He also worked for then-Ohio Treasurer Mary Ellen Withrow and then-Secretary of State Sherrod Brown.
Marion Mayor Scott Schertzer has a special announcement about his political plans.
