Athens County prosecutor race gets personal
(2008-02-08)
(WOUB) - The Democratic primary election for Athens County Prosecuting Attorney is developing into a very personal battle.

Dave Warren is the incumbent and Susan Gwinn is the challenger.

Warren has held the office for seven years...and normally Gwinn would be trying to get him re-elected -- because she's the chairwoman of the local Democrats.

But not this time.

She just doesn't think he's done a good job.

Gwinn says Warren is more concerned about fame than being a good prosecutor...and she cites the case of a Nelsonville juvenile.

But Warren says Gwinn is all wet -- that her accusations against him about lack of integrity and fairness are wrong.

Warren says he will stick by his record over his two terms in office.

Whoever wins the primary is very likely to be the next Athens County Prosecutor --there are no Republicans in the race.
