COLUMBUS – Last Thursday, the Ohio House Republican Caucus elected its leadership team for the 132nd General Assembly with State Representative Rob McColley (R-Napoleon) being elected by his colleagues to serve as assistant majority whip.
“I am humbled by the support of my peers and honored to serve as a voice for northwest Ohioans in House leadership for the upcoming General Assembly,” McColley said.
The caucus also unanimously voted to reelect Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) as Speaker of the Ohio House with Rep. Kirk Schuring (R-Canton) being elected as speaker pro tempore. Rep. Dorothy Pelanda (R-Marysville) was elected majority floor leader, Rep. Sarah LaTourette (R-Chesterland) assistant as majority floor leader and Representative-elect Tom Patton (R-Strongsville) as majority whip. The official swearing in of new members and leadership positions will occur during opening day ceremonies in Columbus in January.
McColley is serving his first term in the Ohio House. He represents the 81st House District, which includes Putnam, Henry and Williams counties, as well as part of Fulton County, including Swanton.
