Ohio Auditor of State Dave Yost served as the keynote speaker Monday at the Richland County Republican Party's First Monday of the Month Luncheon at the former Komito's building in downtown Mansfield. Yost shared his views on how he is working to achieve smarter and streamlined down government in Ohio by partnering with local communities to save tax dollars. "We've identified over $140-million dollars of the state and local level in efficiency savings in two years and we've also got 60 former public officials who can now add convicted criminal to their resume because of our work," Yost said. "So we're working to keep governments here in Ohio clean and efficient." Yost says on a larger level, things are starting to look better for Ohio. "We've had the best three years, consecutively three years of job growth in the state in the last 30 years and there's things that are starting to go right for Ohio and we just need to grow some more jobs and get our economy humming again," Yost says. Yost says we have to continue to find ways to make Ohio more hospitable to people who create jobs, to small businesses, and we've got to protect the middle class but also believes Governor John Kasich and his team are doing a lot to try to protect those values.
