Ohio Democratic Party Statement on Passing of Columbiana County Democratic Chairman

Dennis Johnson Led Columbiana Dems for 20+ Years

COLUMBUS – The Ohio Democratic Party today released the following statement on the passing of Dennis Johnson, chairman of the Columbiana County Democratic Party for the past 24 years:

“The entire Ohio Democratic Party family is heartbroken about the passing of Columbiana County Democratic Party Chairman Denny Johnson,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “For more than two decades Denny led the Columbiana County Democrats with compassion and a commitment to public service. He never forgot what unites us all as Democrats — a vision of America where everyone has a fighting chance at making it into the middle class and staying there. He was a strong advocate for the working families of Columbiana County. Our thoughts and prayers are with Denny’s wife, Marion, and their three children. But as we mourn, we also celebrate the chairman’s life of service, and the difference it made for the people of Ohio.”
