Republican State Representative candidate Jon Cross received an endorsement from local business owners.


According to a release, Sherri Haushalter Sopher and David Haushalter of Robinson Fin Machines appeared with Cross in a video to make the endorsement.


Robinson Fin Machines is a locally owned manufacturing company located within the 83rd district.


Cross issued a statement saying he is honored to receive the endorsement. He added that conversations with local community and civic leaders are more than endorsements, they are important partnerships to make the 83rd district safer, stronger and open for business.


Cross' next meet and greet event is scheduled for this Saturday from 9am to 10am at Iron Fit Gym in Kenton, and Monday the 12th, he'll be at the Logan County Republican Party Luncheon at the American Legion in Bellefontaine.
