Sen. Sherrod Brown, wife Connie Schultz moving out of Lorain County

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Avon, soon will be U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Cleveland.

Brown in a Sunday email through spokesman Yianni Varonis confirmed he and his wife, Connie Schultz, are moving out of Lorain County.

“After almost two decades in Lorain and Avon, Connie and I found a smaller home in Cleveland,” Brown wrote. “Lorain will always be important to us and I’m proud to keep an office there.”

Varonis said Sunday night Brown was unavailable for an interview, and the email didn’t say when Brown and Schultz are moving or how much they’re selling their Avon home for. Schultz, a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist who grew up in Ashtabula, wrote in a Facebook post Friday that the couple was moving to the Mill Creek development in Cleveland.

Brown, a senator since 2007, took office as a congressman representing the then-13th district that included Lorain County in 1993. He grew up in Mansfield.
