YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Voters in Youngstown moved Attorney Carla Baldwin one step closer to the office of city municipal court judge.

She received 59 percent of the votes compared to opponent Anthony Sertick’s 41 percent.

It’s her childhood dream to become a judge.

The Democratic candidate was born and raised in Youngstown.

If elected in November, Baldwin would be the first African American female judge in the Youngstown Municipal Court.
