 25th District State Senator Nina Turner of Cleveland was the keynote speaker at the Richland County Democratic Party's 46th Annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner held Saturday at the Life Celebration Center in Mansfield.   Serving as the current Ohio Senate Minority Whip, Senator Turner says she was in town to thank Richland County for the hard work they've done in the state over the years.   Turner says she's being asked wherever she goes if she does intend to run for the Ohio Secretary of State's office.   Special awards were handed out at the dinner.   Honored as the Democrat of the Year was Brenda Baker, president of the Richland County Women's Democratic Caucus.   The Emily Campbell Brown Young Democrat Award was presented to Bridget Givand for her work at registering classmates to vote.   And, Garland Gates and Johnny Givand both received the John J. Rinehardt Lifetime Achievement Award.
