Howard Wilkinson of the Enquirer posted on Twitter this morning that former Vice-Mayor Jim Tarbell will run for the Democratic nomination in the Hamilton Count Commissioner's race.
This is very interesting news. If he wins the primary, would he get a Charter Committee endorsement? I'm not sure how Jim will play outside the city, but he should far well within the city, and would counter both Ghiz and Monzel strongly.
UPDATE: I guess we now may know why Cecil Thomas is not running, after he said he was considering it.
