No fan of Issue 1


With Ohio’s current drug problem, it is very troubling to learn that the Democratic nominee for state treasurer, Rob Richardson, would support a constitutional amendment that has the potential to enable to flow of more drugs into our communities.

But I think there is hope with Republican nominee, Robert Sprague, who opposes State Issue 1.

Sprague has noted Issue 1 not only endangers Ohio’s fight against drugs but puts families at risk. His firm stance against the proposed amendment should not be a shock to anyone, knowing his previous work to combat the opioid epidemic while serving in the Ohio Statehouse.

As state treasurer, Sprague hopes to use his plan for Social Impact Bonds to find new solutions for the opiate epidemic. His pragmatic approach puts Ohioans and their safety first.
