Zimon Called Smart, Engaged and Energetic
Cleveland, Ohio: The Cleveland Plain Dealer, Ohio’s largest newspaper today endorsed Jill Miller Zimon for State Representative in Ohio’s 12th District. In endorsing Zimon against incumbant John Barnes, the Plain Dealer said, “Zimon is the better candidate, though. She is aware of the issues, passionate about her concerns and eager to represent the voters of the district.” The editorial noted Barnes’ lack of votes on key votes and his inability to explain why he failed to vote on key bills like the defunding of Planned Parenthood.
The 12th District covers 10 communities on Cleveland’s Eastside including, Cleveland Ward 1, Warrensville Heights, Maple Heights, Bedford, Bedford Heights, Highland Hills, Orange, Mayfield Heights, Pepper Pike and North Randall.
