Antani and state Rep. Phil Plummer, chair of the Montgomery County Republican Party, are supporting Young’s run.
“I couldn’t be more pleased that Tom has made the decision to run for the Ohio House. I have known Tom for 20 years and I can tell you that I can think of no one who is better equipped to take on this responsibility,” Plummer said.
Montgomery County Democratic Party Chairman Mark Owens says the party plans to run a candidate in the race, but doesn’t know yet who that will be.
“We are talking to a couple of people,” Owens said. “We believe that we will have viable candidates in all of the state House and Senate districts. They will vigorously run on the issues that affect all Ohioans.”
Young previously served on the Wright State University board of trustees and was a founding board member of Dayton School & Business Technology. He also chaired Campfire Boys & Girls and was on the Dayton Peace Accords Board.
