Treasurer: Cordray (D) Endorsed by Ohio Society of CPAs

The campaign of Franklin County Treasurer Richard Cordray (D-Columbus), a candidate for state treasurer, announced today that he has received the endorsement of the Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants, joining other state-wide organizations of teachers, policemen, firefighters, social workers, and members of the building and construction trades who support him. The CPA society has 23,500 members in Ohio. Screening committee members informed Cordray that they “strongly believe you are the candidate who will best serve the citizens of Ohio.”

This news comes on the heels of several other recent endorsements, including:
  • Northwestern Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council (based in Toledo)
  • North Shore Federation of Labor (based in Cleveland)
  • Ohio Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association (state-wide)
  • Toledo Police Command Officers’ Association
“The endorsement process teaches a candidate a lot about what matters to people working in our state,” Cordray said. “The screenings are rigorous, usually involving written questionnaires as well as interviews. By the time an endorsement decision is made, we all know a lot about one another and how we can work together to improve the state of Ohio. I am grateful for that support.”

I heard today that Ohio leads the nation in poverty. I believe putting someone in the Treasurer's office who knows how to both invest and manage State funds could help get our state and our citizens out of the dumps the GOP put us in.

Seriously? You would prefer that to someone endorsed by three right-to-life groups, a couple of anti-gay groups and a pro-gun group? And who never noticed that someone was embezzling funds from HER OWN OFFICE whhile she was county auditor? Why ever!?
