State Representative Andrew Ciafardini

Our very own, Andrew Ciafardini, was appointed to fill the final weeks of Jim Raussen's term in the Ohio 28th House District.

At a time where our Party is searching for its soul and for our next generation of leadership, we should all be so pleased to have a man of Andrew's intelligence and character as the future of this Party. Since returning from Washington, DC less than a year ago, Andrew has distinguished himself with his hard work and dedication to our Republican Party.

On a personal note, it certainly is nice for this Triantafilou to see that Ciafardini rise to high political office.
