Kim Kellogg-Martin survived a close three-way primary to emerge as Logan County’s next Family Court judge.

“I feel extremely relieved and blessed to have so many supporters and the voters who trust me to cast their vote for me,” Mrs. Kellogg-Martin said after the last of the votes in the Republican primary were tallied Tuesday evening.

She emerged with an unofficial total of 2,690 votes to Dan LaRoche’s 2,424 and Eric Stewart’s 1,074 votes. She moves on to the November election to face Bellefontaine attorney Bridget Hawkins, who received 767 complimentary votes in a Democratic primary that featured little in the way of races to attract voters.

Mrs. Kellogg-Martin, 55, said she believes her lengthy and varied legal career helped her win the race against the two younger candidates.

“We tried to focus on self-promoting and my message,” she said. “I believe my 30 years practicing law and the diverse experience I have helped me running for family court.”
