Cleveland Plain Dealer/ OFCC PAC endorse Jim Trakas (R) for House 17

Republican Jim Trakas is seeking re-election to represent Ohio House District 17. Both OFCC PAC and the Cleveland Plain Dealer endorse him.

In the newspapers words, "Jim Trakas has arguably been Northeast Ohio's most powerful and effective legislator for the past four years."

A recent falling out with House Speaker Larry Householder, the Plain Dealer says, "cannot diminish the skillful representation Trakas has provided for his district - and the state - over the last four years. Trakas has developed into a highly informed member on most important matters facing the legislature."

"Fortunately for voters in District 17, they will choose between two qualified candidates on Nov. 5. But Trakas is the better of the two."

OFCC PAC has been impressed with Jim Trakas' voting record on CCW/self-defense-related issues. His familiarity and experience with HB274, for which he voted yes, ensures continued strong support for Ohio CCW initiatives in the House.

District 17 includes Bentleyville, Brecksville, Broadview Heights, Chagrin Falls, Chagrin Falls Township, Glenwillow, Hunting Valley, Independence, Lyndhurst, Moreland Hills, Oakwood, Pepper Pike, Seven Hills, Solon, Valley View, Walton Hills and part of Mayfield Heights.
