Ohio Lieutenant Governor to speak at Ashbrook luncheon on Oct. 22

10/10/2019 ASHLAND, Ohio – Ohio Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted will speak on “Remembering What Made America Great” at the Ashbrook Center’s Major Issues Lecture Series on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at noon in Myers Convocation Center, 638 Jefferson St., on the Ashland University campus.

Husted was elected in 2018 to serve as the 66th Lieutenant Governor of the State of Ohio. He previously served as the 53rd Ohio Secretary of State, the 99th Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives and a member of the Ohio Senate.

As lieutenant governor, Husted oversees the Ohio Common Sense Initiative and serves as the director of both the Governor's Office of Workforce Transformation and Innovate Ohio.

A native of  northwest Ohio’s Williams County, Husted earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Dayton. After receiving his master’s degree, he remained in the Miami Valley and served as the vice-president for economic development at the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce.

Throughout his time in elected office, Husted has demonstrated repeatedly his ability to get things done that have a positive impact on Ohio and its residents.

As Secretary of State, Husted made it his mission to make Ohio the best state in the Midwest in which to do business by improving customer services and reducing wait times for entrepreneurs. Under his leadership, the state moved beyond week-long processing of paper forms and made it possible for businesses to interact with the state online at the click of a button. He has also reduced the cost for starting a business in Ohio by 21 percent — making Ohio the least costly state in the Midwest in which to start and maintain a new business.

In 2017, Husted announced the efficiencies in his office had not only allowed him to cut the fees the state charged Ohio entrepreneurs, but also eliminated entirely the need for taxpayer funding for the government office for the remainder of his term – a move that saved taxpayers millions of dollars.

The Ashbrook Center, located on the campus of Ashland University, seeks to restore and strengthen the capacities of the American people for constitutional self-government. Ashbrook teaches students and teachers across the country what America is and what she represents in the long history of the world. ###
