The Hamilton County Board of Elections certified the petition signatures of Republican Tom Brinkman on Monday, making official his candidacy to run for state representative in the new 27th House district.
Brinkman, who represented the 34th district as state representative from 2001-2008, said he is very encouraged by the early positive response to the announcement of his campaign.
“As I have travelled the 27th district and talked to the citizens of the local communities, I have received tremendous support for my decision to enter the primary,” Brinkman said. “Their support only reaffirms my belief that I am making the right decision to run. The people of this district deserve better leadership and I plan on giving them that type of strong leadership once again.”
The primary will take place on Tuesday, March 6.
