Klempa Selected Commission Candidate

WHEELING — The Ohio County Democratic Executive Committee tonight selected state Sen. Orphy Klempa to be the party’s nominee for commissioner on the Nov. 6 general election ballot.

Klempa will fill the ballot spot left vacant when David Sims withdrew from the race after being appointed Ohio County Circuit Court judge.

Klempa will face Republican Patty Levenson in November.
