In advance of SOTS address, Gov. Kasich OKs partisan voter bills, Ed FitzGerald ‘livid’
John Michael Spinelli | Columbus Government Examiner
Among the various issues he talked about Friday at a press gaggle at Democratic Party headquarters in Columbus, Democratic candidate Ed FitzGerald had not heard the news that the governor he wants to unseat in November would sign two partisan voter reform bills aimed at suppressing Democratic votes this fall.
Republican Secretary of State has turned the office into a partisan lapdog, not a watchdog for voters’ rights
In response to Secretary of State Jon Husted failure to speak out publicly today against SB 205 or SB 238 as passed by the Ohio House of Representatives, ODP Deputy Communications Director Brian Hester released the following statement:
Standard & Poor’s: “We view Cuyahoga County’s management conditions as very strong with strong financial practices. The county produces quarterly reports which include budget-to-actual results, investment portfolio performance, and updated three-year financial projections shared with the board. Its biennial budget also includes a five-year capital improvement plan and debt policy. The county recently codified reserve policy which set a minimum unreserved fund balance at 20%-25% of expenditures on a budgetary basis.”
Campaign manager Nick Buis released the following statement today:
“Polls will go up and down over the next nine months, but it is clear that Ohioans are responding to Ed FitzGerald because he does not believe the daily financial anxiety Ohio’s families have endured under John Kasich should be the new normal. As Governor and Lt. Governor, Ed and Sharen will ensure all Ohio’s families see their hard work pay off.”
