ONN is reporting that Governor Ted Strickland is going to appoint Mary Wiseman to replace Montgomry County Common Pleas Court Judge John Kessler.

Wiseman, a former Dayton city commissioner, is being called “Ohio’s first openly gay judge.”

Officials with gay rights group Equality Ohio say Wiseman’s appointment makes state history.

Forty-five-year-old Wiseman says she’s proud if the gay community sees her as a role model and says she believes the rest of society can grow more comfortable about gays and lesbians in public office.
