"A former member of the Ohio House of Representatives. Pete Crossland served as a member on Summit County Council for 22 years. . Prior to his service on Summit County Council, Crossland was as a member of the Ohio House of Representatives from 1973 to 1983.

He attained a B.D. from Yale University in 1963 and a Ph.D. from Duke University in 1966."

Republican Jim Renacci was called by Politico a serial litigant. He has been sued many times, including wrongful death suits involving appalling conditions in LTC, the nursing home chain he founded. He has developed a fortune somewhere between 36 and 100 million dollars, some of it derived from criminal neglect of nursing home clients. 6 of his temporary employees alleged they were not paid for work done in his medical billion operations. Sometimes he settled out of court. Sometimes the cases were dismissed. Recently he sued a union for underlining his record in an ad.

Renacci who has voted against many programs for the poor, nevertheless in his car dealership took a lot of money from the government in the 'cash for clunkers' program.
