VAN WERT — Todd Wolfrum, of Van Wert, filed a petition Wednesday at the Lucas County Board of Elections to be on the May Primary ballot.
U.S. Fifth District Congressional candidate Wolfrum is seeking the seat of incumbent Rep. Bob Latta, R-Bowling. Latta has represented the district since 2007. Wolfum believes Latta has failed to become a leader who speaks out for his constituents.
Wolfrum has been canvassing the Fifth District since August, visiting more than 11,500 houses while walking more than 650 miles in 50 towns over 84 days. He plans to continue his walking campaign and looks forward to other speaking engagements where he can better understand the residents of the Fifth District. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wolfrum is a lifelong resident of Northwest Ohio. He is serving his second term as Van Wert County Commissioner. He is a practicing attorney, business owner and author. He graduated from Lincolnview High School, Bluffton College and the University of Toledo College of Law.
Wolfrum resides with his wife and sons in rural Van Wert County.
