Thank you to George Voinovich:

An important part of life is to always look back and thank the people in our lives that made a difference.

I thank Sen. George Voinovich for giving me the opportunity to work for him in the 1970s when he was our county auditor and both of us were starting our political careers.

You could not have asked for a better mentor and loyal friend in public service than Sen. Voinovich. I learned how he treated people with decency and how he ignored party labels for the good of the people.

A career that spanned over 46 years that included mayor of Cleveland, governer of Ohio and a United States Senator is unparalleled in the history of Ohio.


Mayor Gary W. Starr,

City of Middleburg Heights
