COLUMBUS, Ohio -- State Rep. Michael Stinziano has gained the support of two organized labor organizations in his bid for the Ohio House of Representatives.
Stinziano, a Columbus Democrat who's completing his first two-year term in the Ohio House, has received the endorsement of the Ohio Civil Service Employees Association (OCSEA) and the Columbus/Central Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council.
"Council members respect the work you have done while in public office, and we believe you will continue to work in the best interest of our community," Jack Heinzman, executive secretary-treasurer of the Building Trades Council wrote in Stinziano's endorsement letter.
"Bringing and keeping good-paying jobs in our community has to be one of our top priorities," said Stinziano. "I'll work hard to encourage investment in our crumbling infrastructure and to bring help to communities that have been hard hit by state budget cuts."
"I'm so very proud that these organizations have supported my candidacy," said Stinziano, a lawyer. “Together, we can continue to work hard to make our neighborhoods the best place to live, work, raise a family and start a business in Ohio.”
OCSEA represents more than 30,000 state and local government workers that reach into every county in the state while the Columbus/Central Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council represents at least 18 locally affiliated organized labor groups representing construction trades.
