Meet Taylor Sappington
I’m Taylor Sappington and I’m running for Ohio Auditor because we need to get back something that has been lost, something really important.
I was lucky. I didn’t grow up in a cynical world where politics was divisive and dismissed. I was raised on care and compassion. I was taught that public service is the right thing to do.
This is the something we’ve lost and I’m running for Ohio Auditor to restore and revive the sense of community, the spirit that together we can face any challenge and overcome any obstacle.
When I became City Auditor, Nelsonville was in the red. We were teetering on financial disaster. Deficits were killing jobs and stopping our city from growing.
On day one, I found financial records and emails were illegally wiped, beginning my investigation into what would become the City’s largest theft and fraud bust ever, just 8 weeks on the job. Today, we are in the black with a $1 million surplus and the community is growing stronger everyday.
I will take this same can-do spirit and inspired leadership to Columbus, and fight for you.
I promise to balance the books, and when necessary, catch the crooks.
We’ve all been paying for the corruption and games of the politicians in this state who forgot their roots, long ago.
They lost something along the way – and for them it’s gone forever. But we can change all of that. We can take back our state. We can be the leaders that inspire the next generation.
I’m Taylor Sappington and I’m running to be your State Auditor. Join me.
