Committee to Elect Marty Hume Judge


The Vindicator says "Hume stands out among five candidates for Girard judge"

"The Vindicator endorses Marty Hume on the May 3 Democratic primary ballot. Our choice is based on the strongest combination of academic background and public and private legal experience. That was Hume, who has extensive experience as an assistant prosecutor and a lawyer in private practice at the common pleas and appeals court levels."  April 25, 2011.


Why Marty Hume is Your Best Choice to Serve as  Girard Municipal Court Judge   


      Marty Hume will make a real, positive, difference in the lives of the people in our community. Marty has 29 years of experience as an attorney, 14 years experience as a prosecutor, and has been continuously active in civic and political life. Service as your judge will be the culmination of his many years of public service.

     During his years as a prosecutor, Marty has prosecuted hundreds of DUI's, domestic violence, traffic, and misdemeanor criminal cases.      

     Marty has also been an active and successful trial attorney. He has litigated just about every type of case that is likely to come before the court.

     The quality of Marty's work is reflected by the fact that he has been selected by his peers to be listed in the 2006 and 2007 editions of Best Lawyers in America, and named an Ohio SuperLawyer in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.

     Excellent legal writing ability is crucial to effective service as a judge.  At The Ohio State University College of Law, Marty won the Best Brief Award in moot court competition.  Marty has written legal briefs on a wide variety of topics and he will write thoughtful, well-reasoned opinions as a judge.              

     Respect for people of diverse backgrounds has been a hallmark of Marty's law practice and his service in the community. His private practice emphasizes labor and employment law. Marty zealously pursues claims on behalf of individuals who are victims of illegal discrimination based upon race, age, sex, national origin, handicap, or disability. Marty has been extensively involved with Northeast Ohio Legal Services, the Mahoning County Coalition for the Homeless, the Youngstown Area Community Action Agency, the Trumbull County Community Action Agency, and the Youngstown Community Health Center, providers of services to the poor, the elderly, and the disadvantaged.

     With Marty sitting as Judge, the cases of all parties who come before the court will be considered equally, and all cases will be judged fairly.                              

     Marty's experience will allow him to effectively administer the court. He will serve impartially, with honesty and integrity. We need more of that in the Mahoning Valley.
