Attorney General candidate Betty Montgomery has earned the Ohio Civil Service Employees Association's (OCSEA) endorsement. Montgomery, a Republican, welcomed the support of one of Ohio's largest labor unions.
The OCSEA is a labor organization that represents about 37,000 public employees. The organization strives to ensure that its members are successful in their jobs, compensated fairly, treated with dignity and provided a safe and healthy work environment.
Montgomery has focused her entire career on public service. She's dedicated to meeting her commitments to the people of the State of Ohio - to serve as a watchdog of public funds and to provide taxpayers with the highest level of professionalism, service and accountability.
"I'm honored to be recognized by those who've also chosen to serve in the public sector," Montgomery said. "It's a great compliment to be recognized by other public servants and I appreciate their hard work and commitment to making our state better."
"When it comes to protecting working men and women, Betty Montgomery is clearly the best choice," Ron Alexander, President of the OCSEA, said. "Her experience and dedication to the people of Ohio is unparalleled."
Montgomery has spent more than three decades serving the public and has earned a reputation as a fighter and a reformer. Her campaign platform includes fighting for tougher sentences for child sex predators, increasing enforcement of consumer protection laws and enhancing a statewide approach to prosecuting public corruption.
