COLUMBUS, Ohio – The National Federation of Independent Business’ Ohio chapter has endorsed state Rep. Michael Stinziano for re-election.

“I’m proud that The Voice of independent business has recognized our work to protect and support small businesses which are the backbone of our economy,” Stinziano said. “I look forward to continuing to work with our small businesses on the issues that impact them.”

“My goal is to make our neighborhoods the best places to live, work, raise a family and grow a business in Ohio,” Stinziano said. Stinziano actively engages small business leaders via his Small Business Advisory Council.
