OMA-PAC Board Endorses DeWine-Husted

The OMA-PAC board of directors of The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association (OMA) has formally endorsed the Mike DeWine-Jon Husted ticket in the 2018 gubernatorial race.

“The board’s endorsement of DeWine-Husted was based on the ticket’s focus on the economy, workforce development, jobs, education, opioids/substance abuse and strengthening communities,” said OMA-PAC Chair Jane M. Neal, senior vice president of AMG Vanadium LLC in Cambridge, Ohio. “These priorities are in line with manufacturers’ priorities.”

The OMA-PAC’s decision to endorse DeWine-Husted also reflects the candidates’ deep knowledge of and wide experience in state government.

“The DeWine-Husted team has the kind of frontline knowledge and experience that will serve Ohio well,” said Scott Balogh, president and CEO of Mar-Bal, Inc. in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and OMA chairman of the board and member of the OMA-PAC executive committee. “As it faces complex challenges, Ohio deserves strong leaders with vision and commitment to capitalize on opportunities. We believe those leaders are Mike DeWine and Jon Husted.”
