LeVeck Hires Campaign Manager

­Todd LeVeck, the Democratic candidate for the State House of Representatives in Ohio’s 16th State House District, announced that grass­roots organizer and retired teacher Steve Holecko has been hired to be Team LeVeck’s campaign manager.

Holecko has organized and participated in initiatives for numerous Democratic candidates and issues, dating back to the 1970s. Recently, he has served as a Neighborhood Team Leader for Organizing for America (2008 and 2012), as the leader of the Southwest Office for We Are Ohio (repeal of SB5/No on  Issue 2), and as an Ohio Delegate to the Democratic National Convention (2012).  

“I had the chance to work with Steve in 2011 when we were fighting SB5, and I’m thrilled to have his passion, expertise, and experience working for our campaign in the 16th District,” said LeVeck. “He  brings a wealth of experience in grass­roots organizing and mobilization, as well as a deep knowledge of the issues that are important to our campaign: supporting schools and local governments, protecting the middle class, and restoring integrity to state government.”  

Holecko recently opened eyes in Cuyahoga County when he ran in a hotly contested three­-way Democratic primary race for State Representative in Ohio’s 14th District, where he received over 3,600 votes to finish a close second to Cleveland City Councilman Martin J. Sweeney. “Although we were disappointed in the outcome of the primary election, I am excited to be working on Todd’s campaign,”  said Holecko.  “We need the voice of educators in Columbus, and Todd LeVeck will be a strong voice for our children, our schools and local governments, and the middle class families of Ohio.”      

Todd LeVeck is a public school teacher and the Democratic candidate for State Representative in Ohio’s 16th District, which includes the cities of Bay Village, Fairview Park, North Olmsted, Rocky River, and Westlake. He will be facing three-­term incumbent Republican Nan Baker in the November election.
