Husted Returns $52,000 after Statewide Ballot Advertising Costs come Under-Budget
COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s Office will appear today before the Ohio Controlling Board to return $52,496 that were appropriated for the constitutionally required statewide ballot advertising prior to the November 3, 2015 General Election.
“Providing better services with lower costs is something businesses strive for every day and that’s how we’ve operated in our office since I became Secretary of State,” Secretary Husted said. “I’m grateful to our partners at AdOhio for their work in helping us be good stewards of the taxpayer’s money.”
The Secretary of State’s Office contracted with the Ohio Newspaper Services Inc., also known as AdOhio, to provide legal advertising totaling $560,082, $52,496 less than expected. The Ohio Constitution requires the publication of arguments for and against all statewide ballot issues in newspapers leading up to Election Day.
