Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel announced Tuesday his endorsement of businessman and former Army officer Otto Voit to be Pennsylvania's next State Treasurer.
"As State Treasurer of Ohio and as a fellow veteran, I am proud to endorse Otto Voit to be Pennsylvania's next State Treasurer. As a successful businessman, Otto has the right experience to lead Pennsylvania's finances. As a former Army officer, I know he has the integrity and the leadership traits necessary to reform Harrisburg.
Otto is committed to bringing government transparency to Pennsylvania and I'm glad to stand with him in support of PACheckbook.com, his initiative modeled after our efforts in Ohio. We implemented OhioCheckbook.com to increase government transparency and hold our elected officials accountable by posting state spending online. OhioCheckbook.com is setting a new national standard for government transparency, bringing Ohio from 46th to 1st nationally in government accountability and transparency.
Otto's vision for PAcheckbook.com will open up government and bring the transparency and accountability that Pennsylvania taxpayers deserve."
Voit thanked Mandel for his support. "Ohio has become the gold standard for economic success and government accountability. I appreciate Treasurer Mandel's support as we work to do the same here in Pennsylvania."
Josh Mandel has served as Ohio State Treasurer since 2011. He previously served in the Ohio State Legislature and on the Lyndhurst City Council.
