Glassburn, Rahm to face off in North Olmsted Ward 2 council race

NORTH OLMSTED – Former North Olmsted city school board member Chris Glassburn and incumbent Dan Rahm will face each other on the City Council Ward 2 ballot in November, unofficial results from Cuyahoga County Board of Elections showed.

Glassburn led the unofficial results from Tuesday’s primary with 406 votes. Rahm placed second with 234 votes while retired Westlake police officer Pat Kelly placed third with 95 votes and children’s social worker Janelle Zauner had 11 votes. All four sought the appointment to city council when Paul Barker resigned in early 2017 to take a job as a city building inspector. Rahm, a school principal in Lorain County got council’s nod.

Glassburn, who advocated having the city set up programs to work with home owners on property issues instead of citing them for driveway or sidewalk issues and working on city financial issues, was pleased.

“I walked all over the ward talking to people and believe I discussed issues which are important to people,” he said.

Rahm said he will continue to work hard to retain the seat.

“My goal was to be in the top two and get into the general election,” he said. “I’m looking forward to a good campaign up to November.”
