The Columbus/Central Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council is proud to endorse Judge Chris Brown in his re-election bid for the Franklin County Common Pleas Court.
A lifelong central Ohio resident, Judge Chris Brown attended St. Leo’s Catholic Church and graduated from South High School, before receiving his degree in Political Science from The Ohio State University in 2002. He earned his law degree from Capital University Law School in 2005.
As an attorney, he was a Special Victims Unit prosecutor, protecting children and victims of domestic violence and human trafficking. In 2012, he was named the managing attorney for J. Scott Weisman Law Offices, defending individuals charged with criminal offenses and their Constitutional rights.
In 2014, Judge Brown was elected to the Court of Common Pleas, General Division, where he heard felony criminal cases and civil disputes. Judge Brown’s background as both a prosecutor and defense attorney gives him a unique perspective and sense of fairness, having represented both victims and defendants in criminal cases.
“My career as an assistant prosecutor, defense attorney and judge gives me a unique understanding of issues affecting our neighbors,” said Judge Brown. “As a kid from the south side of Columbus, I’m grateful to be able to serve my community as a judge.”
“I am thrilled to have the endorsement of the Columbus/Central Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council,” he added.
“Judge Chris Brown has been a great friend to the Building Trades,” said Dorsey Hager, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the Columbus/Central Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council. “He is a smart, young judge who has done a tremendous job on the bench.”
As of late June, the Democrat has received the endorsement of the Stonewall Democrats of Central Ohio.
