PERRYSBURG – Molly Mack separated herself from the pack Tuesday night.
The Perrysburg Municipal Court hopeful won the GOP primary for the judge’s seat with nearly 38 percent of the vote.
Opponents C. Drew Griffith and Aram Ohanian received 32.2 percent and just under 30 percent, respectively, according to unofficial results.
“The support of the voters, the confidence that they have in my candidacy, I’m overwhelmed,” said Mack. “We had very good candidates and my competition was really tough. I’m really pleased and relieved at this point.”
Current Municipal Court Judge Dwight Osterud is stepping down after nearly 24 years and four terms on the bench. The court’s jurisdiction encompasses much of northern Wood County, including the cities of Perrysburg, Rossford and Northwood; the villages of Luckey, Millbury, Stony Ridge and Walbridge; and the townships of Perrysburg, Lake, and Troy. 
Mack is Chief Assistant Wood County Prosecutor in that office’s Civil Division, a post she has held since 2009. She began working with that office in 2004, and prior to that had been an associate in the litigation department at Spengler Nathanson, and at Arnold and Caruso Ltd.
If elected, Mack would be the first woman to hold the court seat.
“I think we ran a real positive campaign,” she said of the primary. “Our message was consistent throughout.”
Mack’s next challenge will be in the coming months, as she will be facing current Perrysburg Councilman Tom Mackin, who is running for the judgeship as an independent.
“We’re going to kind of regroup and start moving towards the election in November. I think we can take a little bit of a breather, but not much,” and then gear up for the race.
“November’s right around the corner.”
