Rick has been a driving force for this region, especially for Wright-Patterson AFB. His military background and community leadership greatly influenced our 2005 Base Realignment and Closure win and contributed to successfully bedding down the new missions and more than 1,000 new jobs. Given the announced budget reductions for DOD and our recent changes in congressional representation for WPAFB, his work on our behalf is more important now than ever. Rick's experience, education and proven leadership is exactly the representation this community needs in Columbus.
