The Akron-Canton Advocacy Alliance, in partnership with the Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce, cordially invites you to the upcoming Candidates Conference for Ohio’s 6th Congressional District, which includes all of Mahoning, Columbiana, Jefferson, Harrison, Belmont, Monroe, Noble, and Washington Counties, as well as portions of Stark and Tuscarawas Counties. We’re holding this event ahead of the June 11th Special Election, during which Michael Kripchak (D) and Michael Ruilli (R) will face off to see who will fill this currently vacant congressional seat.

This unique event will provide members with an opportunity to connect directly with two congressional candidates, learn about each ones’ priorities, and share their perspectives. With two back-to-back “fireside chats,” each candidate will have their own timeslot to provide opening and closing remarks, respond to predetermined questions related to the business community’s top policy priorities, and answer questions from audience members.

Meet the Candidates:


Michael Kripchak


Michael Rulli
