As Ohio Plummets on Child Welfare Rankings, DeWine Reappoints Major Donor to State Child Welfare Agency
August 11, 2022
Columbus, OH — Under Mike DeWine’s (lack of) leadership, Ohio continues to plummet in all major child welfare categories. As Ohio families are falling further and further behind, Mike DeWine recently reappointed a major donor to serve on a key child welfare agency, raising questions about whether DeWine is prioritizing the interests of his campaign donors over the interests of Ohio children.
“Mike DeWine has a long history of putting his own political interests over the interests of Ohio families. Reappointing a major campaign donor to a state child welfare agency at a time when Ohio is falling in all major child welfare metrics raises serious questions about who DeWine is really looking out for. Ohio families deserve answers from DeWine,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
