(COLUMBUS – May 31, 2018) – On behalf of its more than 27,000 members, The Ohio Society of CPAs (OSCPA) is proud to endorse Mike DeWine for Governor and Jon Husted for Lt. Governor.
“Mike DeWine’s broad experience, positive track record of tackling tough issues and vision for what Ohio needs to succeed makes him the clear choice for Ohio’s next governor,” said OSCPA President and CEO Scott Wiley, CAE. “And, Jon Husted’s strong history of leadership, driving economic development and helping Ohio businesses succeed are equally impressive.”
OSCPA’s 19-member Statewide Endorsement Screening Committee and 15-member Executive Board separately evaluated the candidates before unanimously endorsing the DeWine/Husted team.
“Together, DeWine and Husted make a proven, solid leadership team for our state – one that’s ready on their first day in office to cut suffocating regulations, drive positive outcomes and operate government efficiently and effectively immediately,” Wiley said. “I’m confident they will be successful in their efforts to attract, retain and grow employers and the skilled workforce needed for Ohio’s economy to thrive.”
OSCPA is looking forward to continuing its long partnership with DeWine and Husted to find practical, commonsense solutions that will make Ohio an even better state for families to live and businesses to grow.
The committees cited the candidates’ strong leadership in working with Ohio businesses and look forward to working alongside the candidates to strengthen Ohio’s economy.
