OHD18: Dovilla Receives Ohio Manufacturers’ Endorsement

COLUMBUS – The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association Political Action Committee (OMA-PAC) has announced its endorsement of Mike Dovilla (R-Berea) in his candidacy for the 18th District Ohio House race for the upcoming November election.

“Our goal is to help elect the most qualified candidates to protect and grow Ohio manufacturing,” said OMA president Eric Burkland. “With today’s endorsement, we’ve taken an important step in accomplishing that goal. Mike Dovilla supports the issues that are important to Ohio manufacturers and their employees and understands that a strong manufacturing sector leads to a healthier economy, good jobs and improved quality of life for all Ohioans. We are pleased to support him.”

Candidate endorsements are made by the OMA-PAC board of directors based on a variety of information including public records and member support in the district.

“I am honored to be endorsed by The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association. As a consultant to an Ohio-based U.S. Army Center of Excellence that partners closely with local metals manufacturers, I understand the importance of manufacturing to our state’s economy. We must work to restore a business-friendly climate to Ohio that allows these companies to grow and create jobs for Ohioans. When I am elected to the legislature, I will work closely with Ohio’s manufacturers to ensure they have an economic environment in which they can compete and succeed.”
