We are pleased that Montgomery County Recorder, Brandon C. McClain, joins us for our latest “community conversation.” What is a Recorder? We wondered too! Brandon explains his role as Recorder, his thoughts on receiving the 2019 Herman Zerger Veteran of the Year award, and the importance of voting in the upcoming elections! (Remember –  The voter registration deadline to vote in the Ohio primary is tomorrow – Tue Feb 18th for the March 17th primary!)

Brandon C. McClain graduated cum laude from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice; the University of Cincinnati with a Master of Science in Criminal Justice; and the University of Dayton College of Law with a Juris Doctor.  He is also a veteran, having served as a non-commissioned officer in the Army National Guard, achieving the rank of Sergeant, prior to him being honorably discharged.

Since March 2018, Recorder McClain has initiated two key programs:  the Veterans Identification Card Program and the Fraud Alert Notification System.  In addition to his elected duties, he serves on the Dayton Public Schools Operational Advisory Committee, the Board of Trustees for the Dayton Bar Association, the Mary Scott Nursing Center Board of Directors, and the Sinclair Community College Paralegal Program Advisory Committee. 

In recognition of his efforts as Recorder, Mr. McClain has received the Top Ten African-American Male Award (Parity, Inc., 2019), the Forty Under 40 Award (the Dayton Business Journal, 2019) and has been inducted into the Dayton Bar Association Foundation Fellowship (Dayton Bar Association, 2019).
