Washington -- Congressman-elect David Joyce (R-14, U.S. House) has hired Solon native Nick Ciofani as his district director, keeping Ciofani in a familiar position to his post with former Congressman Steven LaTourette.

"I'm very pleased to announce Nick Ciofani as my district director," Joyce said in a prepared statement. "Nick has worked in the district for several years and his extensive knowledge of Northeast Ohio will allow our office to provide the best constituent services possible."

Ciofani graduated from Solon High School in 1998 and Hillsdale College in 2002. Prior to accepting the position of district director, Ciofani ran LaTourette's Twinsburg office in Government Center and worked in the finance department for the city of Solon.

Ciofani currently resides in Streetsboro.
