I think public servants should, well, be…public and not behind paywalls. But here it is, “Mandel plans to use ‘bully pulpit’ of treasurer’s office to help state.”
That would be from the most current issue of Columbus Business First. What’s even more bothersome to me is that we don’t have some equivalent offering of information from the only NE Ohio statewide elected in an NE Ohio publication – first.
Between Ohio Governor-elect John Kasich’s declarations to “exploit” Ohio’s natural resources (his word, not mine) and the Treasurer-elect suggesting that the overseer of the state’s coffers is actually in line with Theodore Roosevelt’s view of elected office as being an excellent place from which to push an agenda, I’m really looking forward to 2011.
