John R. Sindyla Esq., CEO of SMACNA-Cleveland joined members of the Cleveland building trades at a luncheon fundraiser for Ohio State Rep. Tom Patton (R-District 7). The leadership of SMART Local 33 also attended, including Business Manager Mike Coleman.
Rep. Patton, currently Majority Whip of the Ohio House, discussed the political landscape in Ohio and how his newly elected position as Majority Whip is a benefit to SMACNA and SMART as a supporter of union labor and union contractors.
Formerly a member of the Ohio Senate, Rep. Patton also served as Senate Majority Leader. Then elected back to the Ohio House, he sits on the Aging and Long-Term, Transportation, Finance, Public Utilities, and the Rules and Reference Committees.
