Red, Blue, or Purple? The State Treasurer On Ohio's Political Future
As Ohio’s 49th Treasurer of State, Robert C. Sprague serves as the chief investment officer for the state’s investment and debt portfolios, oversees the daily cash flows of state monies, and serves as custodian of funds and investment assets outside the state treasury. Sprague, a Findlay native, has made a career in Ohio politics, serving in the Ohio House of Representatives from 2011 through 2018 before being elected state treasurer. With a reproductive rights constitutional amendment and a statute to legalize marijuana now headed to a November ballot, Ohio politics are headed in an uncertain direction. With Treasurer Robert Sprague as our special guest, we dive into the present and future of Ohio’s political climate with veteran Statehouse News Bureau Chief Karen Kasler.
