National Defense PAC Endorses Mike Dovilla for Ohio Senate
The National Defense Political Action Committee, unequivocally and without reservation, endorses Mike Dovilla to represent the 24th Ohio Senate District, which is comprised of 28 suburban communities in Cuyahoga County in the greater Cleveland area. Dovilla is a patriot dedicated to the service of his Nation and State.
National Defense PAC National Chairman, Rear Admiral (Ret.) Jim Carey, stated, “Mike Dovilla is exactly the caliber of military veteran that NDPAC seeks to support for elected office. He knows America’s national defense, intelligence and homeland security needs and he will work hard to make sure that those needs are addressed in the Ohio Senate on behalf of the citizens of Cuyahoga County and especially for all of our men and women in uniform. He understands the premise of peace through power!”
A lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve, Dovilla is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom with more than 13 years of commissioned service. A qualified Information Dominance Warfare Officer, his military decorations include the Defense Meritorious Service Medal (two awards), Joint Service Achievement Medal, and various campaign and unit awards. Dovilla is currently serving his third term in the Ohio House of Representatives, where his colleagues elected him Majority Whip for the 131st General Assembly.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the National Defense PAC in my candidacy for the Ohio Senate,” said Dovilla. “Veterans advocacy has been a major focus of my efforts during the past five years in the Ohio House of Representatives. I am pleased to have authored laws expanding opportunities for higher education and post-military employment, protecting service members and their families from identity theft, and improving the voting process for deployed military personnel."
