Ohio Attorney General David Yost will serve as the featured speaker for the Fayette County Republican Central Committee Lincoln Day Dinner on Feb. 18.
Before being elected as Ohio’s 51st attorney general in November 2018, Yost was Ohio’s 32nd auditor of state. As auditor, Yost’s public corruption investigations resulted in more than 170 criminal convictions, and he found more than $260 million in potential taxpayer savings, according to his bio.
Yost previously served for eight years as the elected prosecutor for Delaware County, winning the first capital murder case in the county’s history and taking down the county’s largest drug ring. He stood with the victims of crime, from women and children harmed by predators to law enforcement officers injured in the line of duty, according to his website.
Yost began his career as an award-winning newspaper reporter for the Columbus Citizen-Journal, and later practiced law with Burkam, Yost & Fuller in Delaware, before serving on city council and becoming the county auditor.
As attorney general, Yost has vowed to fight for justice, fight to protect Ohio families, and fight to combat the state’s opioid epidemic. He and his wife, Darlene, make their home in Franklin County, and have three grown children and three grandchildren.
The annual Lincoln Day Dinner will once again be held at the Mahan Building on the Fayette County Fairgrounds. The social hour will begin at 6 p.m. with dinner following at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are $30 per person or you can reserve a table of eight for $250. Please contact your Republican central committee person or call Ruth Ann Ruth, Lincoln Day chair, at 740-335-5836.
