COLUMBUS – Former U.S. Representative Zack Space announced his candidacy today to serve as Ohio’s next Auditor of State during a four-stop statewide tour, starting with an event in Martins Ferry and followed by events in Zanesville, Columbus, and Lima. “Ohioans in every corner of the state know that our democracy is broken,” Space said. “Too many feel left behind and ignored by a dysfunctional process that caters to wealth and privilege. They are right to feel this way – their voices are muffled by the din of special interests and self-serving politicians.” “I’m running for Auditor because we need change. The Auditor is the people’s representative; I intend to use the broad powers of the office to honestly and independently stand for every Ohio family. We deserve a government that is responsive and accountable to us,” Space said. “I will shine a light on the influence of money in the process, and oppose efforts to politicize the creation of legislative districts.” The Auditor is a constitutional officer charged with a broad mandate to ensure that public officials act with the best interests of all Ohioans in mind. Ohio’s Auditor sits on the Bipartisan Redistricting Commission (formerly known as the Apportionment Board) which will determine the next decade of Ohio’s legislative elections.
