COLUMBUS—State Senator Michael Rulli (R-Salem) on Monday was sworn in by Ohio Supreme Court Justice, Judith L. French, to represent Ohio's 33rd Senate District, which includes all of Columbiana and Mahoning counties. The opening ceremonies were held at the Ohio Statehouse, marking the beginning of the 133rd Ohio General Assembly.

"It is an honor and privilege to be here today among colleagues who are clearly passionate about representing their districts," said Rulli. "I look forward to beginning our work to promote economic development, strengthen our growing workforce, and ensure our education system is effectively preparing kids for the future."

As Director of Operations for the 100-year old Rulli Bros. Markets, Senator Rulli understands the challenges faced by small businesses and the vital role they play in our communities. He has also served as chairman of a highly effective business development group in Salem.

He was previously elected to the Leetonia School Board and is passionate about the education of our children. As President of the school board, he led the district through a crippling financial crisis, and the district climbed into the top 100 in the state in “value added,” a distinction Leetonia Schools held two years in a row.

Rulli has been recognized by the Better Business Bureau, receiving the organization’s 2017 Torch Award. The Regional Chamber also honored him with the 2017 Small Businessman of the Year Award.
