Former Forest Park Mayor Stephanie Summerow Dumas has won the Democratic primary for Hamilton County Commissioner. She won with 58 percent of the vote to her challenger Wolf’s 44 percent.
“I had a never give up attitude,” said Dumas, who recently retired after 31 years as a social worker. “I just had a feeling this was my time. This was my season to do this.”
Former state representative Connie Pillich, recently elected co-chair of the Hamilton County Democratic Party with Springfield Township Trustee Gwen McFarlin, told WVXU she was as surprised as anybody else in the party when Dumas upset the party’s endorsed candidate.
“But the voters have endorsed Stephanie,” Pillich said. “She did a really good ground game.”
