Former Zanesville Mayor "Butch" Zwelling isn’t letting his decision to not run for re-election slow him down.

As of Thursday Zwelling is a part of the Micheli, Baldwin, Northrup Law Firm.

Zwelling practiced law for 22 years before beginning his career in politics. In that time he served as an attorney, as well as a Municipal and Common Pleas Court Judge.

"Butch was a tremendous criminal attorney and he really enjoyed the courtroom," said Partner Michael Northrup. "Butch enjoyed it and usually referred to it as "Show Time" and it showed because he was fiery in the courtroom and had tremendous results."

Zwelling said he has always had the upmost respect for the firm and is anxious to bring his expertise to their practice.

"I feel too good to do nothing, so I made one of the choices and I’m satisfied that I made a good choice,"said Zwelling. "I’m out here with Micheli, Baldwin, and Northrup group and I’m very happy to be here."
