Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) was honored by the American Nationalities Movement with their Lifetime Freedom Award on Saturday, December 17th

“I am extremely humbled and very grateful to the American Nationalities Movement for the distinguished honor,” said Rep. Anielski. “Their organization is a testament to the strength of the immigrant communities in our city and our state. Immigrants have long been a vibrant part of our locality and many service organizations founded decades ago by these newcomers, whom continue to serve northeastern Ohio, demonstrating the value of the American melting pot.”

“With 150 attendees representing nearly 40 nationalities around the Cleveland area enjoyed the music, food and socializing while three individuals were given the 'Freedom Award' of the Movement,” said Ralph Perk, Jr., President of the American Nationalities Movement. “Among the awardees were State Representative Marlene Anielski, 6th District, who was given the award for her commitment to government service in Walton Hills and the State Legislature.  With her support of her Slovak and Polish heritages and her longtime support of the American Nationalities Movement's goals and objectives - Unity for Nationalities in our area and freedom from tyranny for all people in countries around the world, she was honored.”

Rep. Anielski served as Mayor and Safety Director in Walton Hills for more than ten years, and as the State Representative for Ohio’s Sixth House District now serving her third term. Rep. Anielski is a member of the First Catholic Slovak Ladies Association.
