FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Eric C. Ungaro Announces Candidacy for State Representative
Vows to Address the State of Public Education, the Opioid Epidemic, and Economic Development in the Valley
POLAND, OHIO, January 2 – As an active member of the community, Eric C. Ungaro, a lifelong Democrat, union member, and resident of Mahoning County, announced his candidacy today for state representative of the 59th district.
Through his 28 years of professional experience as a special education teacher, football coach, and union representative, Ungaro has firsthand knowledge and understanding of the issues and challenges facing students, teachers, and schools.
“I am proud and humbled to be from a family that has always represented the area with honesty and integrity. I will be honored to bring that reputation and humility to the state house.”
Ungaro has developed a close working relationship with the valley, its schools, and local law enforcement.
Ungaro currently serves as a Poland Township trustee and is a member of the Western Reserve Joint Fire District. He is the treasurer for the Mahoning County Mental Health and Recovery Board, as well as first president and chairman for SOLACE of the Valley and The Red Zone. His long involvement with family support groups, as well as prevention and recovery programs, stems from his own personal experience.
“Through God’s plan, my brother overdosed five years ago. Since then, I have worked passionately and tirelessly with both law enforcement and affected families to give them a voice of confidence when dealing with the opioid epidemic. I will take that voice to the state house.”
Since Ungaro serves the community in several capacities, he understands the concerns of the valley.
“Economic development and job creation are the best social cures. I will take a team approach to work with surrounding mayors, trustees, and state and local officials to promote our area.”
