The NFIB OH PAC, the political action committee of NFIB in Ohio, has announced the endorsement of Dave Yost as the best candidate to represent the interests of small business owners in the race for Attorney General for the 2018 Ohio general election this coming November.
Yost has been a strong advocate for ensuring Ohio’s tax dollars are used properly and protecting the state’s constitution from special interests seeking financial gain while serving as Ohio’s Auditor. He understands the need to establish an environment in which business owners can grow their companies and create jobs, helping to drive our economy forward.
“Ohio small business owners appreciate Auditor Yost working to make Ohio a fair place to operate their businesses,” said Roger R. Geiger, NFIB’s Vice President/Executive Director in Ohio. “If elected, Dave Yost will represent the state on significant economic issues before Ohio’s courts, and his office will be responsible for consumer protection services that significantly help Ohio’s small businesses. We will encourage our 23,000 members to actively work for Yost’s election and convey how important his election is to the economic vitality of Ohio.”
“I am proud to receive the endorsement of the NFIB OH PAC,” said Yost. “Consumer fraud, identity theft, and public corruption can have devastating effects on honest small business owners across Ohio. As state auditor and a former county prosecutor, I have gone after corrupt public officials and sought justice for victims of crime. As Ohio attorney general, I will continue holding wrong-doers accountable, and work to create a level playing field where small businesses can thrive.”
In determining the endorsement, the NFIB OH PAC thoroughly vetted the candidates for Attorney General through a member-driven process, including surveying members and personal interviews with the candidates. After completing the process, Dave Yost is the strongest choice for Ohio’s small business owners.
