Jamison Receives Canary Candidate Endorsement
Canary Candidate Endorsement
Components of Senator Sherrod Brown's everyman public image include a canary pin he wears on his lapel, a symbol of the canaries coal miners used to take with them down into the mines to detect toxic gas before there were more robust safety regulations. Finding commonality with Judge Terri Jamison, he has endorsed her for Associate Justice on the Ohio Supreme Court in the race against Patrick F. Fischer, the Republican incumbent.
"Terri Jamison is a leader committed to making equal justice a reality for all Ohioans. Judge Jamison worked underground in coal mines, and she worked in courtrooms as a public defender. She will bring perspectives to the bench that have long been lacking from Ohio's highest court, and she understands the lives of working Ohioans -– that's why I'm proud to endorse Terri Jamison for Ohio Supreme Court."
