Service to Country- Shortly after graduating from Clinton Massie High School, Cliff acted on a calling to serve his country and enlisted in the Ohio Air National Guard.

In that role, Cliff was activated to assist in the deployment of troops in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, and in the response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
In February of 2007, after accepting a position with the White House, Cliff transferred to the 113th Fighter Wing of the Air National Guard where he currently is assigned. Cliff’s military experience taught him the value of dedication, teamwork, service before self, and honoring previous generations.
Community Involvement- Cliff’s home of Clarksville has been influential in establishing his values and commitment to public service. In the summer of 2005, he worked with leaders of Clarksville to help establish a village planning commission. He became the Village Planner for their first year to get the commission moving and he helped establish a plan for smart growth for Clarksville.
In November of 2005, Cliff led a movement to establish a Clinton County Veterans’ Memorial in Wilmington. Working with the County Commissioners and community, the team raised over $180,000. Money for the memorial was kept in the community by hiring local talent to design and build the memorial. The memorial was completed ahead of schedule and under budget and the people of Clinton County proudly dedicated it on November 11, 2008.
Recently, Cliff chaired the 2009 Clarksville July 4th parade committee. Cliff organized a team and in six weeks they raised the funds necessary for the parade and left a surplus for the following year’s celebration. A highlight of the parade was a flyover by the Ohio Air National Guard.
Cliff is also very active in the political process. He has helped and worked on campaigns of mayors, county commissioners, sheriffs, state representatives, congressmen and senators, governors, and presidential candidates. He understands what it takes to win a campaign and the intensity and demanding hours required of a candidate.

Many in Cliff’s family have served the Clinton-Warren Joint Fire and Rescue and as a young man, Cliff was a cadet.
