In The Region:

Ohio’s Treasurer Josh Mandel has highlighted his military service in recent campaigns for office. But if the Republican Mandel runs for re-election as expected, he might find himself running against a Democrat who's also a vet: State Rep. Connie Pillich of Dayton.

"I think Ohioans -- whether they be middle class families, small business, or seniors -- they really really want someone who will fight for them. They want and deserve a treasurer who is going to be committed to the job he was elected to do, to protect their tax dollars and make sure they are used wisely."

Pillich underscores her strong background in public service.

"I’m 52 and I’ve got a lifetime of public service in my pocket now. I spent eight years on the active duty in the military and served in Desert Storm and as a lawyer, I represented victims of predatory lending and I did volunteer work for the poor. I’ve been a community volunteer all of my adult life. In the Legislature, I feel like I am fighting for my district. And I think it’s time for me to head to a bigger district."

Ohio Republican Party Chairman-elect Matt Borges says Mandel has been a good steward of Ohio’s tax dollars. Borges says Pillich, however, joined her fellow Democrats in pursuing disastrous fiscal policies that led to an $8 billion deficit.
