Toledo, OH — Late yesterday, Mike DeWine released a list of appointments to various state boards – part of his taxpayer-funded official duties as governor. However, it seems as if DeWine played politics with the process when he appointed Lynn Isaac to the University of Toledo Board of Trustees. Isaac has donated $10,000 to DeWine since he was elected as governor in 2018, raising questions about whether the appointment was politically motivated.
“Mike DeWine has long dodged questions about pay-to-play schemes and backroom deals, with a long record of rewarding the wealthy and well-connected at the expense of workers. Now, we’re seeing his mega-donors receiving cushy state board appointments. DeWine has tried to hide the truth for too long. Ohioans deserve answers about how this appointment came about and whether this appointment was politically motivated,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
