Twitter handle: @dannyoconnor1
Why are you running? I am running because of my stedfast belief in good governance and public service. My mom is a retired teacher so those values have been with me from a young age. As your County Recorder I will go to work everyday fighting for home owners, small business owners, veterans and folks from all walks of life who need a good and responsive government.
What are the most important issues on your campaign? I want to ensure that the Franklin County Recorder’s office is the most efficient Recorder’s office in the State of Ohio. As a proud young Democrat I am confident I will provide a new direction with my vision for where the County Recorder’s office needs to go.
Give us a fun fact about yourself. I speak Spanish.
Who is your favorite president? Why? Franklin Delano Roosevelt, FDR. I admire FDR because of the way he guided our country through the greatest economic crisis we’ve ever seen and he had the steadfast leadership to see our country through a two front, global war. His contributions to American society were positive and lasting, including the vital program of Social Security.
What’s your favorite food on the campaign trail? Why? Anything on the menu at the Rambling House or anything that John and Marna Gutman cook.
If you could be a superhero, who would you be? Why? Spiderman because of his speed, agility, and his ability to stand up for the “little guy”.
If you were a professional athlete what song would you choose to be your “walk out” song? “Say my name” by Destiny’s Child
What was your first paid job? I folded towels at the YMCA in Sidney, OH.
How can young dems help in your race? When we win in November, I will be the youngest executive in Franklin County history. To do this I need young dems to get out into the community and tell people why they’re supporting me. This can be through canvassing or in their personal conversations with family and friends.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
