Blackwell Wins Ohio CPAs Endorsement
COLUMBUS – Gubernatorial candidate Ken Blackwell today welcomed the endorsement of the Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants. The Ohio CPAs chose Blackwell, a former state treasurer and Cincinnati City Council finance committee chair, because of his solid understanding of fiscal issues and financially prudent solutions to Ohio’s job creation and economic growth challenges.
“Ken Blackwell impressed the society’s endorsement and executive committee with his clear vision for Ohio,” said Barbara Benton, Vice President of Governmental Affairs of the Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants. “He has a strong sense of how to drive Ohio’s economy, control government spending, limit the tax burden on individuals and businesses and improve Ohio’s K-16 educational system.”
