Jon Husted is currently the Secretary of State of Ohio and …..Republican candidate for Governor in 2018. He describes himself as a Christian, a Conservative, and a Republican – in that order.
Adopted as a child, Jon Husted is steadfastly pro-life and believes passionately that every child deserves a chance. He is a lifelong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and is the only statewide official – and the only candidate for Governor – to have ever earned an A+ Rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA).
As Secretary of State, Jon Husted has led the charge against elections fraud, removing the registrations of over 600,000 deceased voters and 1.7 million voters who were registered to vote at more than one address. He is the only Secretary of State to have performed a voter fraud review after every election to hold cheaters accountable and he launched the first-ever system to keep non-citizens from voting in the state. Under his leadership, Ohio also made it easier for service members and military families to cast their ballots – even earning Ohio All-Star State status from the national association of the United States Army.
Since taking office, Jon Husted has also revolutionized the way entrepreneurs interact with the state, cutting the time it takes to register a new business from four days to under four hours. These efficiencies allowed him to cut the cost for starting and maintaining a business in Ohio by 21 percent – making Ohio the least costly state in the Midwest.
As Secretary of State, Jon Husted has used nearly 40 percent fewer staff than his predecessor and cut his budget by over $14 million in his first term alone. In 2015, he was the only statewide official to request a cut, not an increase, in his budget and in 2017, he became the first known official in the state’s history to end his office’s reliance on tax dollars entirely – requesting $0 in the most recent budget.
Jon Husted was raised in Northwest Ohio’s Williams County and graduated from the University of Dayton with both a bachelor’s and master’s degree. While at UD, he starred on the Dayton Flyers’ Football Team and was honored as an All-American Defensive Back and played on the 1989 Division II National Football Team.
Jon Husted considers his most important roles to be husband to his wife, Tina, and father to Alex, Katie and Kylie.
See you all on Monday, November 13th!
