Four years ago, Jim Tarbell, the former Cincinnati city council member and vice mayor, took on Republican Chris Monzel for a seat on the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners.
His name was on the ballot as the endorsed Democratic Party candidate.
And he lost, taking 44 percent of the vote to Monzel’s 56 percent.
Well, Tarbell’s back.
And, this time, his name won’t be on the ballot.
Tarbell filed paperwork with the Hamilton County Board of Elections last Monday to run as a write-in candidate.
