A Slaby is running for the Statehouse, but not the one voters were expecting.
A Summit County GOP committee tapped Marilyn Slaby Wednesday evening as the new candidate to replace Lynn Slaby, her husband, in the race for the 38th Ohio House district in the November election.
Lynn Slaby, who won the nomination in the March primary, resigned from the Ohio House in April after being appointed to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. The party appointed Marilyn Slaby to fulfill the remainder of his term for the 41st House District, which runs through the end of the year.
Next year, thanks to redistricting, the 38th District will cover the western portions of Summit and Stark counties, running from Sagamore Hills Township south to Sugar Creek Township.
Marilyn Slaby was appointed to the House in March 2004 to replace Republican Bryan Williams but lost in the general election to retired Akron school Superintendent Brian Williams. (They aren't related.)
