|Message from the Executive Director – Winter 2018|
The OPBA lost another member while performing his duties as a Police Officer. On November 14th Officer Michael Huffman of the Madison Village Police Department died of apparent natural causes. In a resolution from Madison Village Council, Officer Huffman was remembered for “his positive attitude, camaraderie and pleasant smile.” Our condolences are with Officer Huffman’s family, friends and co-workers. Officer Huffman was an 18-year member of the OPBA. Rest in Peace.
The 2018 election cycle is complete. Ohio Issue 1 which had many negative implications for law enforcement was defeated. Congratulations to OPBA endorsed candidates Melody J. Stewart and Michael P. Donnelly who were elected to serve as Justices on the Ohio Supreme Court.
