Zack Space for Ohio Releases First Television Ad “Crossroads”
Space first to TV airwaves in Auditor’s race; highlights central campaign theme
COLUMBUS -- Zack Space for Ohio today released the first television ad in the race for Ohio Auditor of State. The spot, “Crossroads,” highlights the central theme of Space’s candidacy: that Ohio’s democratic system has been rigged against working families by corporations and special interests.
Space will use the Auditor’s office to aggressively advocate for ordinary Ohioans, including a Special Audit Unit to thoroughly investigate the for-profit charter school scam and investigations into the effects of the failed NAFTA-era free trade agenda on Ohio’s local governments.
Republican nominee for Auditor of State Keith Faber has a long history of serving corporate and special interests in exchange for campaign contributions:
Faber is a central figure in the ECOT scam -- the largest political scandal in Ohio history -- which has bilked hundreds of millions from Ohio’s public schools and taxpayers. Faber has been lambasted for misleading Ohioans about his role in the scandal.
Faber protected the payday lending industry from common-sense reform while cashing nearly $75,000 in industry checks.
Faber also single-handedly killed the wind energy industry in Ohio in 2014, the same year he pocketed over $87,000 from fossil fuel industry sources.
“Crossroads” will run on broadcast markets across Ohio starting Tuesday, October 16th.

“In this election, Ohio is at a crossroads.
We can continue down a path where corporate money rigs the system, or we can choose a new direction, one where government answers to all of us.
I’m Zack Space and I believe when money calls all the shots, regular people get fleeced.
Let’s demand more than that.
As your next Auditor, I won’t take orders from the highest bidder;
I’ll answer to you.”
