Jennifer believes our family court system needs to change so that it is fair to all people. 


She believes there is no place

for nepotism, favoritism,

inefficiency, abuse of power or other abuses of the court — which Butler County

citizens depend on for fairness.

In 1971, Jennifer was adopted through the Butler County Court system. 


It’s one of the reasons she is so passionate about family court. Jennifer knows how important family court is to children, parents and families.

Fairness. Equality. Transparency.

Ethics. Integrity.


These aren’t just words. These are the values Jennifer will bring to the Court of Common Pleas in Butler County. 

A note from Jennifer


why I’m

passionate

about Family

Court

My life in Butler County began in the Family Court when I was adopted, in 1971, by two generous, loving people with the aid of kind and caring people working in the Butler County Court system. Butler County has given so much to me — a loving family, a sense of belonging and a wonderful life. I am running to give back to a community that welcomed and nurtured me — from a baby girl, to the woman I am today. I’m grateful, and it’s one of the biggest reasons I’m self-funding my campaign. The good people of Butler County deserve a family court free of influence. I want to positively change family court for the benefit of all people. I hope I can count on your support. 

teamed up again


Back in 1971, when Joe McCloskey was Jennifer’s adoption caseworker, he facilitated the start of a wonderful life for Jennifer. Now he’s helping her all over again — this time to tell her story and return her to the very courtroom where her life began.
