I am former Fairborn Councilman Frank Cervone and I am endorsing Rick Perales as the Republican candidate for Ohio State Representative in the 73rd District, which includes Fairborn, Beavercreek, Yellow Springs, Bellbrook, and the surrounding communities.

Rick has been actively involved in Greene County for more than ten years holding positions of both Mayor where he was named Ohio Jaycees Outstanding Mayor in 2003; and Councilman of Beavercreek and has served as your Greene County Commissioner since 2005.

Commissioner Perales was instrumental in bringing jobs to Greene County with the BRAC and with his extensive background in infrastructure, has been an asset to Greene County as they prepare for the future. He has been named one of the Dayton Business Journal’s 25 Most Influential People of the Decade and most recently, an Ohio Veteran Hall of Fame Inductee.

Perales joined the Air Force in 1982 and was commissioned as an Air Force Second Lieutenant. He obtained a B.S. Degree in Building Science Construction and later earned his Masters Degree in International Relations. His talents were not only used in the United States, but also in Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Germany where he was involved in the operations, maintenance and repairs needed on many Air Force Installations. In 1997, he retired from the Air Force with the rank of Commander of the 788th Civil Engineer Squadron right here at WPAFB after receiving many awards and commendations.

Rick has also given so much to the community not only by being appointed to Wright State University’s External Advisory Board for Mechanical and Materials; but by serving on the Beavercreek’s Board of Zoning Appeals. He is also on the Board of the Saint Joseph’ Treatment Center, The Victoria Theatre, Habitat for Humanity, The Community Network, The Red Cross, The United Way and the Big Brothers, Big Sisters Organization.

On a personal note, Rick has always been there if I ever needed him and has been a supportive husband and wonderful Father.

Please join me in supporting Rick Perales as your next Ohio State Representative!
