COLUMBUS — Now that Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel has announced he is officially running for the U.S. Senate, he must stop promoting himself in a Public Service Announcement (PSA), said ProgressOhio Executive Director Sandy Theis.
Mandel, Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer and an Ohio woman with a disability have been appearing in a 30-second PSA to promote a program that allows disabled Ohioans and their families to set up tax-advantaged investment accounts. Mandel’s office administers the program.
“This program is too important to let it be tainted by politics,’’ Theis said. “Coach Meyer is well positioned to advocate for the program on his own – especially after beating Michigan – again.’’
