Press Release: Trent Dougherty Launches Campaign for Municipal Court

Columbus, Ohio — Today, Trent Dougherty launched his candidacy for Municipal Court Judge in Franklin County. The election for this seat will be held on November 5, 2019.  

Dougherty has spent his legal career advocating for those in the community unable to fight for themselves. For the last fourteen years, Dougherty has served as a public interest attorney for environmental groups, going above and beyond to preserve our state’s natural wonders, working with communities across the state as they fought back against corporate polluters.

“I’ve lived my entire life in Columbus and Franklin County,” said Dougherty. “I was educated here, and chose to raise my family here. It’s a great place to work and live, but this great community can only grow when everyone gets a fair shake. As a career public interest lawyer, I have fought to benefit people over profit, and to ensure that nobody takes an unfair advantage. I believe that my experience, grounded in the principle of fairness that has guided my career, will benefit my community’s growth.”

Dougherty lives in Grandview Heights with his wife and daughter.
