With Ohio Aerospace Day on June 5th, State Representative Rick Perales (R-Beavercreek) is pleased to announce that he was recently selected to serve as the co-chairman of the Ohio Aerospace Caucus for the 130th General Assembly.

“I would like to thank Senator Chris Widener and Representative Jim Butler for initiating this caucus and for brining synergy to this very important industry,” said Rep. Perales. “In my new role as co-chairman, I hope to be able to continue raising awareness for this industry and show my colleagues in the Legislature the numerous opportunities that Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Springfield Army National Guard, and all the other bases can offer.”
