HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, OH – Sunday, February 18, 2018

The Republican Party of Cuyahoga County (RPCC) voted today to endorse both candidates in the May 8 primary race to succeed Marlene Anielski for State House District 6.

State House candidate Michael Canty, who was the first to officially file for the open seat earlier this year, is happy with the decision.

“I believe that party is bigger than the individual,” Canty said. “The Republican Party must be unified if we are to hold this seat in November.”

County Councilman Jack Schron, an early supporter of Canty agreed.

“Too often when the media covers our party, they focus on infighting and divisions. A joint endorsement sends an important message of strength and unity as we head into the 2018 election cycle.”

Schron played an instrumental role in encouraging Canty to run for office. He said he was not surprised by Canty’s decision to ask for a joint endorsement.

“Michael’s willingness to seek a mutual endorsement in the interest of party unity is consistent with the type of leadership he has demonstrated as a businessman,” Schron said.

Canty is currently the CEO of Alloy Bellows in Highland Heights. The former Bentleyville mayor said he decided to run for the statehouse because he knows Ohio can do better.

“I believe that my leadership experience in the private sector has given me a lot of insight into how we can develop smarter economic policies for our state,” he said. “Economic growth doesn’t just happen. It has to be actively encouraged and cultivated. That is the type of leadership I want to bring to Columbus.”

House District 6 covers portions of eastern and southern Cuyahoga County, and includes the cities of Solon, Lyndhurst, Brecksville, Broadview Heights and Independence.
