Warren Council veterans battle for 7th Ward seat

WARREN — A former six-term 7th ward councilwoman is seeking to unseat a former council colleague now serving in that position.

Susan Hartman, 64, said she is seeking a return to council in 2022 because she enjoyed being on council and felt she did a good job representing the ward’s residents.

“People deserve good representation and I will do my best to give it to them,” Hartman said.

She served as the 7th ward council representative from 1997 through 2009. She was defeated in the 2009 race by then newcomer, Eddie Colbert, who is now Mayor Doug Franklin’s safety service director.

Incumbent Ronald White is hoping to win a second term in the council seat. Although a first-term councilman in the 7th Ward, White served two terms in the late 1990s as the 4th Ward councilman.
