Former UH vice mayor Goldberg holds lead over incumbent judge with election results not yet official
Francine Goldberg, former University Heights city councilwoman and vice mayor, holds a slim lead over incumbent judge Janet Rath Colaluca in the race for Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court Judge.
As of Nov. 5, unofficial election results provided by the County BOE showed that Goldberg, a Democrat, had received 116,409 votes (50.26 percent), compared with 115,212 votes (49.74 percent) for Republican candidate Colaluca.
Absentee ballots can be received up to 10 days after Election Day (if postmarked no later than the day before the election), and so have yet to be counted, and official election results, including provisional ballots, have not yet been certified by the BOE.
Goldberg was a University Heights councilwoman for 12 years, serving as vice mayor for four of those years, until term limits brought an end to her service to the city in December 2013.
Goldberg earned her undergraduate degree at The Ohio State University and her J.D. at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. She served as a Cuyahoga County prosecutor for 22 years before resigning in February to run for election as a judge.
