Last month, the elections board rejected former State Sen. Kevin Coughlin’s petition to run for Stow Municipal Clerk of Courts, indicating he had to have run in the spring GOP primary because he has been affiliated with the Republican Party.

Now, the board is calling former Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner as a witness and advisor in the case, citing her expertise in election law. The Democrat and former judge could not be reached for comment.

Coughlin says candidates for court office can also file as non-partisans. He noted the board allowed this for a Republican running for judge, and he says he's being targeted. 

If he runs, he'll face Democrat Diana Colavecchio, a former Cuyahoga Falls council member appointed to the clerk’s seat, and Republican Frank Larson, the Mayor of Munroe Falls.
