Huber Heights, Ohio - Associated Builders and Contractors of Ohio, Inc. (ABC of Ohio) announced its unanimous endorsement of Seth Morgan, CPA for Auditor of State on Friday, March 26.
"As state representative, Seth Morgan demonstrated he has the character and strength to be a strong, independent and trustworthy watchdog of the Ohio treasury," said Thaddeus Claggett, Chairman of the ABC of Ohio board.
Associated Builders and Contractors is the largest construction association devoted to the merit shop contractor. ABC of Ohio is comprised of three Ohio chapters, representing nearly 1,000 companies. In all, 77 chapters in a nationwide federation represent 25,000 member companies with 2 million employees across the U.S.
"Seth's strong support in the business community is a validation that business leaders want a certified public accountant in the auditor's office. He has the record as city councilman and state representative of supporting policies that help businesses grow," Claggett said.
"As a CPA, Seth Morgan has a keen understanding of how to audit Ohio's many divisions of state and local government. But being Auditor of State also requires a person who has demonstrated the courage of his convictions. Seth Morgan did just that when he successfully stood up to Governor Strickland's effort to hide important policy information from Ohio policy makers. Seth Morgan made Ohio government more transparent and more accountable as state representative. As Auditor of State, he'll continue that openness which will protect taxpayer funds from waste, fraud and theft," Claggett said.
