PERRYSBURG – After coming out on top in a three-way primary, and making it through a long campaign, Molly Mack will now be taking her place on the bench.
Mack, Perrysburg Township, was elected Tuesday night to serve as the next judge of the Perrysburg Municipal Court.
Mack beat her opponent, Tom Mackin, with an unofficial 58.57 percent of the vote.
“I am so honored and so grateful that the citizens have elected me,” said Mack. “I am very humbled.”
She will replace the retiring Judge Dwight Osterud, who has served in the post for more than 20 years.
The court’s jurisdiction covers the cities of Perrysburg, Rossford and Northwood; the townships of Perrysburg, Lake, and Troy; and the villages of Luckey, Millbury, Stony Ridge and Walbridge.
Mack, a Republican, beat out C. Drew Griffith and Aram Ohanian earlier this year in a GOP primary, earning the right to face off against Mackin, a lawyer and Perrysburg city councilman, in the general election.
Mack has been with the Civil Division of Wood County Prosecutor’s Office for the past nine years, and has served as chief assistant prosecutor there since 2009.
“Tonight is a night of celebration, and tomorrow we get ready with a transition team,” said Mack of her next steps. “I am hopefully going to be able to work with the current judge so we can make the transition smooth and get my team ready.”
Among Mack’s more immediate concerns is looking into a replacement for the outgoing clerk of the Perrysburg Municipal Court, who will be retiring when Osterud steps down.
Mack expressed her thanks to the voters, her family, and her supporters who saw her through the lengthy campaign.
“I’m looking forward to this exciting opportunity. I can’t wait to get started.”
