“This is about restoring faith in the probate/juvenile court and returning the judiciary to its intended role as a nonpartisan office. This is about having a judge we can be proud of.” – Matt Rambo
Staff Report-Geauga County Maple Leaf
Matthew Rambo filed a Designation of Treasurer with the Geauga County Board of Elections Monday, formally kicking off his campaign for Geauga County Probate/Juvenile Court judge.
A private practice attorney with more than a decade of work in the judicial system, Rambo intends to register as a Republican and square off against incumbent probate/juvenile court Judge Tim Grendell in the 2020 Republican primary
He believes voters deserve a choice when electing Geauga County’s next probate/juvenile judge, something they have been denied in the recent past.
“This isn’t about Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal,” Rambo said. “This is about restoring faith in the probate/juvenile court and returning the judiciary to its intended role as a nonpartisan office. This is about having a judge we can be proud of.”
In an unscientific, nonpartisan poll being conducted on the Geauga County Maple Leaf’s Facebook page, 78 percent of the more than 500 votes have been cast for Rambo as of 4 p.m.Tuesday.
Rambo has enlisted former Republican State Committeeman Scott Kayser as his campaign treasurer and said he would campaign vigorously throughout the county to provide voters that choice.
