WARREN — Two local attorneys have taken the first steps toward running for a judge seat next year on the Trumbull County Family Court bench, according to the Trumbull County Board of Elections.

Samuel Bluedorn and Jack Pico have filed designation of treasurer forms with the board. Bluedorn is an attorney with a practice in Warren and Pico is a magistrate at the family court.

Judge Pamela Rintala, who has held the seat since 1994, is retiring.

The primary will be held in May and the general election in November 2018.
