what have we done for you this week?

This week, the Ohio Trucking Association held its annual Sibila TRUKPAC event at the Sibila Barn in Massillon. The event, which had over forty attendees, raised funds to support the association's political action committee. TRUKPAC funds are distributed to candidates who support the industry, and recommendations for these contributions are made through OTA's experienced lobbying team and then approved by a committee of trucking company professionals who have an in-depth knowledge of Ohio's political landscape. The event, hosted by Bruce Blaise of Kenan Advantage Group and Doug Sibila of Peoples Services, welcomed speakers Jane Timken, of the Ohio Republican Party, and US Representative Bob Gibbs. Both speakers gave an update on the advocacy that the state of Ohio is performing in order to support the industry. Said Jane Timken: "Trucking is the bedrock of the wellbeing of this state...When you are doing well, we are doing well...Our job is to build the roads that candidates can drive down in order to advocate for your industry." Thank you to our speakers, our hosts, and our supporters. Join us for our next TRUKPAC event, Trucking for TRUKPAC, on August 14 in Toledo, Ohio. Register here.
