CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A sibling of Ohio Senator George Voinovich is running for public office.

Victor Voinovich Sr. hopes to become the county's first Cuyahoga Executive.

The local real-estate broker confirmed with 19 Action News that he is seventh candidate to throw his hat into the ring.

The newly-created position will be one of the most powerful in northeast Ohio.

"The Cuyahoga County Executive and 11 council members will be able to put people in positions who actually know what they're doing," said Victor Voinovich Sr.

The 64-year-old Republican is Senator Voinovich's younger brother.
