George V. Voinovich


The SBAA is saddened by the recent passing of George V. Voinovich. George was universally esteemed for his remarkable career in public service, including as a United States Senator, Governor of Ohio, and Mayor of Cleveland. He is widely credited with the fiscal and economic revitalization of Cleveland during his time as Mayor, and earned a reputation for principled, nonpartisan leadership as Governor and Senator.  For his outstanding achievements as a Serbian-American lawyer and public servant, the SBAA was honored to present George with the Czar Dusan Award. Our thoughts and prayers are with George’s family.  May his memory be eternal.
