ZACK SPACE JOINS CONGRESSIONAL HELLENIC CAUCUS

- Caucus focuses on key issues in Greece and the Aegean-

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congressman Zack Space (D-OH), whose family immigrated to the United States from Greece two generations ago, announced his membership in the Congressional Hellenic Caucus today.

Space's grandparents immigrated to the United States from the north Aegean island of Ikaria in the early 20th century. 
The Caucus, which was formed in 1996 by Representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and former Representative Michael Bilirakis (R-FL), strives to improve and sustain the United States' relations with Greece. The Caucus focuses on diplomatic, military, and human rights issues regarding Turkey, Greece and Cyprus.

"The issues that concern Greece are of enormous importance to me," Space said. "I look forward to working with the other members of the Caucus to make sure that we in Congress address issues that are critical to Greece and to the hundreds of thousands of Greek Americans who live in the United States today."

Space is a member of the Massillon Greek Orthodox Church.
