Jason Wuliger for Lake County Recorder
Meet Jason Wuliger
On November 1, 2011, Jason Wuliger announced his candidacy for the office of Lake County Recorder. Prior to seeking to serve Lake County as Recorder, Jason has served the community in a number of ways.
Immediately before Jason announced his bid for Recorder, he was Magistrate and Deputy Chief of Staff to Judge Karen Lawson of the Lake County Juvenile Court. Based on the rules contained in the Ohio Code of Judicial Conduct, Jason had to resign his position at the Juvenile Court before he could run to be Lake County’s Recorder. Jason joined the Court with Judge Lawson when she took the bench in January of 2009. In his role as Magistrate, Jason decided cases related to child abuse and neglect, contested custody matters, paternity cases, juvenile delinquencies, child support, unruly behaviour, and tobacco cases. As Deputy Chief of Staff, Jason’s responsibilities included assisting the Court in development and implementation of innovative new programming during a time of shrinking budgets. The Court was able to create more effective programming by being more efficient and making better use of taxpayer dollars. Jason was also responsible for identifying and cultivating community partnerships, representing the Court in the community, and managing the Court’s communications.
Prior to joining the Juvenile Court, Jason was an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Charles E. Coulson, the Lake County Prosecutor. Jason was responsible for prosecuting some of Lake County’s most dangerous criminals. He’s helped lock up murderers, rapists, burglars, drug traffickers, meth manufacturers, drunk drivers, and a variety of violent criminals. He was also responsible for prosecuting individuals for engaging in fraudulent activity such as identity theft and forgery.
In addition to Jason’s years in the Juvenile Court and in the Lake County Prosecutor’s Office, he has been involved with the community in a variety of ways. He currently serves on the Board of the Lake County Blue Coats, is a trustee of the Lake County Bar Association, is the First Vice-President of the Fine Arts Association, has been active in the Feed Lake County Food Drive, is a member of the FOP Auxiliary Lodge #25, and is a member of the Willoughby Rotary. In the past, he served on the board of Pathways, as well as on the Lake County ADAMHS Board. In 2010, he was given the Clem Urbanski Award for his work with United Way’s Feed Lake County Food Drive, and he received the 2012 Community Service Award for attorneys under 40, District 18, by the Ohio State Bar Foundation. “I am committed to Lake County’s future and, whether it’s in my professional or volunteer capacity, I am dedicated to seeing our community grow and prosper.”
Jason received a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University, and graduated from the New York University School of Law. He lives with his wife and two children in Kirtland.
Jason’s dedication to the community, history of doing more with less, and practical experience fighting fraud make him uniquely qualified to be our next Lake County Recorder.
