The Executive Board of the Affiliated Construction Trades of Ohio (“ACT Ohio”) recently endorsed a number of additional candidates for legislative office. The political endorsements are in line with ACT Ohio’s mission to facilitate economic and industrial development and incorporate industry best practices for Ohio’s public and private capital improvement projects.

“These individuals have demonstrated leadership on issues that help create jobs within the construction industry, and for that we are appreciative,” said Executive Director Matthew Szollosi. “Our Executive Board has made clear that we will support candidates and elected officials that promote work opportunities for our members.”

The December endorsements include:

“With us, it’s quite simple,” Szollosi said. “Our members want to go to work, earn a fair wage that supports the communities we live in, and provide good benefits for their families. We’re willing to stand with those who believe in our issues, and we plan to make our endorsements matter.”
