  Mr. KUCINICH. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of State 
Representative John E. Barnes, Jr. of Ohio's 12th House District.
  Representative Barnes is the son of former Cleveland City Councilman, 
John E. Barnes, Sr. who instilled in him a sense of value of service to 
others. Representative Barnes received a master's degree from Case 
Western Reserve University, professional education from Harvard 
University, an Honorary Doctorate from Chancellor University, and was a 
student at the Kathlieke University in Leuven, Belgium.
  Representative Baker first served as a State Legislator from 1999 to 
2002, during which he participated as a member of the Ohio Legislative 
Black Caucus' official visit to South Africa in 2001. He was also 
responsible for bringing millions of dollars to his district to support 
economic development and job creation initiatives. As a State 
Representative for the second time, he now sits on the Ways and Means; 
Health and Aging; and Economic and Small Business Committees.
  In addition to his place in the Ohio House of Representatives, 
Representative Barnes has held positions as Chairman of the Ohio 
Commission on African American Males, a Cabinet-Level Director in the 
Administration of Former Cleveland Mayor, Jane L. Campbell, Director of 
Cleveland's Department of Community Relations, and a Senior Tax Auditor 
and Investigator for the City's Division of Taxation.
  Mr. Speaker and colleagues, please join me in honoring the 
achievements of State Representative John Barnes, Jr.
