Indian-American attorney Pavan Parikh will replace Indian-Tibetan Cincinnati city mayor-elect Aftab Pureval as the Hamilton County clerk of courts. It is to be noted that Pureval is also the first member of the community to be elected as the mayor of Cincinnati in the US state of Ohio.
The Hamilton County Democratic Party central committee unanimously selected Parikh — who had run for general election for judge of the county court of common pleas probate division in Ohio in November 2020, but lost — as Pureval’s successor. “… the Hamilton county democrats appointed a world-class leader and servant to fill my seat as clerk of courts. Pavan Parikh has the character, experience, and resolve to expand access to justice and bring our courthouse to new heights. It’ll be my honour to partner with you,” Pureval, who will take over as Cincinnati mayor later this month, said in a tweet earlier this week.
“In the last few election cycles, the voters have spoken that they wanted change at the courthouse. Under Aftab’s leadership, we have seen how critical the clerk is to achieving meaningful reform,” Parikh, told Spectrum News after his appointment. “I believe that I can be of strong service to Hamilton county in this role having worked at the courthouse and leaning on my years of experience as an attorney, Army officer, business executive, educator and civic leader. I look forward to helping make our justice system work better for all of the people of Hamilton county.”
Meanwhile, 38-year-old democrat Pureval, the son of a Tibetan mother and an Indian father, had won the election in November 2021, and is set to become the first Asian-American Pacific Islander (AAPI) mayor in Cincinnati’s history. “Today, AAPI Victory Fund celebrates Aftab Pureval’s historic win as the first Indian-Tibetan-American mayor of a major city who has a bold vision to move Cincinnati forward,” AAPI Victory Fund founder and chairman Shekar Narasimhan had said after his election. AAPI Victory Fund, a political action committee that mobilises Asian American voters, had endorsed Pureval as “a necessary progressive voice that has been able to achieve success with democrats and republicans alike” in its slate of mayoral candidates.
Pureval, who is the first democrat elected to the mayor’s office in more than 100 years, has pledged to rebuild the city’s economy to make sure prosperity is shared in every corner of Cincinnati. He will also work towards reforming the police department and invest in public safety so every neighbourhood is safe and create more affordable housing and improve public transportation, according to a statement on his website.
As clerk, he had made access to justice a priority by launching a help centre to assist people who are representing themselves with legal resources so more people can utilise the courts. During his tenure, he had brought modern and professional reforms to the clerk’s office. Born and raised in Southwest Ohio, Pureval went to the Ohio State University. His wife Whitney is a doctor who has also been involved with the treatment of Covid patients.
