"For dialing up to six pack tonight. Much appreciated, Uh, right out of the chute. We're going to get with Ohio Secretary of State Frank Larose and let me bring frank up on the On the sea bus, home improvement dot com phone line, Mr LaRose. Thank you for making some time for me tonight. I really appreciate it. Today. I'm glad to do it. I've got a ton of questions, so I'm just going to start firing at you, and there's just so much going on right now, And I think there's a lot of confusion. I know there is when I have conversations with people about absentee ballots and votes and things like that. So Let's start with the absentee ballot People. King can request an absentee ballot application right now. You could do that part online. Your office will send an application, not the ballot, but they'll send the application for the ballot to the voter and your office will pay the postage to send that application to the voter. Correct. Correct, But then the voter will have to use their own postage to send it back. So Ohio's absentee ballot process is just a It's a two step process one. You've got to request a ballot in writing. It's got to be signed and mailed to your board of elections. And then they'll mail you a ballot. Those ballots start going out October 6 and the Good news, David we've already had Over 1.4 million Ohioans that have requested their absentee ballot by the way that surpasses the entire election cycle from 2016, and we're only in the second week of September, so we're doing really well in the final request. People have three ways of getting those absentee ballot requests first is I mailed everybody in the state 17.8 million registered voters every registered voter in the state, but it didn't get that one or your dog ate it or your spouse throw. Don't throw it away. You condone toe Vote Ohio dot gov. You can print your own right there on our Web site. You can ask Tohave one male Tien will mail you another one. Or you could even make your own using a plain white piece of paper will give you instructions there. Just take a pen and a piece of paper and I'll give us all the information we need and mail it to the board of elections. So we try to make it really easy. But now is the time to get that requested. If you want to vote as well, and you would just mentioned you sent those out now I voted via absentee ballot in the primaries. And then I did get my application in the mail. So just to confirm what you were saying. I didn't get that just because I requested one for the primaries. Every current registered voter has been mailed a absentee ballot applications. Is that correct? 100% correct. And it was a print shop just out in licking county that made him I went out there a couple weeks ago. 17 tractor trailer loads full of mail. The male 7.8 million registered voters in that city ballot request. So every registered voter in the stakeout one well, and I know that we're looking at higher voter turnout for the for the general election, But I will say I dropped my my ballot off in person the day of the primary, and it was absolutely hassle free, so people if you're wondering about that, it's going to be busier. But I'm telling you, it worked as good as it could possibly be. I saw that firsthand. All right once you get an absentee ballot Must you vote with that ballot, Or can you still show up and vote in person? If you have not cast your absentee ballot, So Dave, right there on the form when you're requesting your ballot, it says that, uh, that's your the way that you're going to vote, and that's the right thing to do. If you request UFC balance, you should mail in your palate. But here's what happens if you show up to your polling location. Or if you show up in the early voting location, for example, and you say I requested absentee ballot, But I want a voted person. Now they're gonna have to give you a provisional ballot. What That means is that it's a ballot ticket. Set aside, you get voted, but it gets put into a separate folder. Then those would be resolved after election because what you're bored of elections has to do that is make sure you're not voting twice. I think that's something we always pretty straightforward. And so once they've made sure that you didn't also send in your absentee ballot. Then they will count the provisional ballot. But again that adds a lot of extra burden to the board's What we really want people to do make their decision. Make their plan. If you want to vote absentees and go ahead, do that mail it in and then you also, if you don't want to mail it in, as you mentioned, you could drop it off at the county Board of Elections, every Theo in the state now As a secure Twentyfourseven drop box. That's the first time by the way ever in our state's history for a general election that that's been the case. Every board of Elections has a 24 hour drop box where you can stop and drop it off with the easiest thing to do is to mail it in and then track it. That vote Ohio dot gov. Just like you track a package. You could make sure that it.

"Thanks for listening as I mentioned when I was on Saturday afternoon I had a chance to speak with them Ohio secretary of state Frank larose and we're gonna revisit to a chunk of that interview right now and and talk about the Ohio primary being moved well absolutely and like so many Ohioans orchestra while still working very hard right now and thank you for taking the the the chance to talk to me absolutely you know we had something very unprecedented which happened last Tuesday Ohio was to have its primary it didn't happen when did it become apparent to use that to the primary would need to be moved just kind of walk us through that whole process I'm sure that was a mine field for you oh absolutely and yeah it was Monday morning you can't understand the timeline going back just over a week ago was when the governor issues is that a public health emergency at that point we started working very closely with the Ohio department of health doctor any activity you just heard from the press conference as well as governor to wind it at that point and really throughout the entire last week the guy has been clear that is long as we follow the guidelines of hand hygiene and social distancing wiping down the disinfecting voting machines moving the voting locations away from senior residential facilities what if we did that it would still be safe and I'd ask doctor acted nearly every day this very pointed questions will be safe for Ohio's voters will be safe for Ohio's poll workers and up until at eight PM conference call I had with that correct on Sunday night the answer was unequivocally yes and Ohioans were ready to conduct an election really had risen to the occasion thousands of all workers have volunteered to train over the weekend and we were ready to go forward a database change dramatically on Monday morning and be clear all along my my mantra to Mike he was facts not fear we're gonna listen to the public health professionals I'm not an epidemiologist I don't have an empty after my name so we're gonna listen to the experts and I think all I would should the should make sure that they're doing that well those experts whether it's from the CDC your order after acting for the out of pocket health contacted me she contacted me on Monday morning along with a lieutenant governor John he's dead and they said very clearly that it would not be safe now to go forward there have been some changes that occurred overnight on Sunday night and into Monday morning and mostly those were these new fatality numbers coming out of Europe the richest absolutely staggering in and do CDC guidance that was saying that the maximum number of persons allowed in a gathering would go from one hundred down to fifty and then eventually be reduced down to ten as we as we all heard so you know at that point the governor was clear the lieutenant governor's clear on the director there that we could not safely hold an election on Tuesday about how do you do that it's never been done in our state's history how do you postpone how do you extend an election and prevent the the in person voting from happening really the only power to set an election date is in the Ohio revised code for the the you know from from for the legislature to have it so we thought that the first and best course of action was to go to the to the legislature again with our go to the to the courts rather with the governor having to tell Ohioans over sixty five but it was not safe for them to leave their homes unless absolutely necessary we thought that the court would see clear that you know use when twenty percent of your population is being told to stay home how can you hold a fair election I mean it's just that it would be clearly disenfranchised in this group of All I Want so certainly those over sixty five and you know we were surprised when the court didn't see it that way at that point the governor knew what he had to do he had to use his authority under title thirty seven which is essentially the law related to public health and through doctor act and issued a public health related order to keep the polls closed on on Tuesday I responded immediately and we've been working throughout the day together I responded immediately with direction quality portable action Monday evening that said very clearly we're going to follow the governor the governor's order Dr actions ordered not only because it's a legally binding order because it's the morally right thing to do but further more that I was going to use the director that I had a secretary state could just lay out for awhile and some clarity on when they would be able to cast their ballots how they would make their voice heard I just think that the people of Ohio should be waking up on Tuesday morning and wondering if they were still gonna have a lecture and so what we clearly laid out the directive which has been reinforced by the attorney general's completely lawful is an order that says that we're gonna continue with eleven weeks of voting by mail and that that'll conclude on June second and at that point we'll calculate the results announced the winners not an easy choice but I'm the governor's decision to save lives and I'm confident that my decision about protecting the integrity of our elections and so in that sense I think that we both to the right place that is that is an incredible story so he is a lawsuit filed by the Ohio Democratic Party do you think it is are they playing partisan politics here or is that really just a matter of just trying to establish a protocol and and move forward you know I I hope not I'm that person that always believes in the best of intentions of of people I can tell you that up until the point of them filing that lawsuit I've been working very closely with both the Ohio Republican chairman Jane Timken and the Ohio democratic chairman David pepper unfortunately once I became the the defendant in a lawsuit in my capacity as secretary of state I couldn't then continue communicating with with with chairman after unfortunately than we had been talking very very very frequently to make sure that what we were doing was moving forward in a bipartisan way listen my role as chief elections officer I'm elected to this post by running as a member of the Republican Party of all when I took that oath of office just over a year ago I put on the referee's Jersey I I I'm not a Republican or a Democrat in my capacity as well as secretary of state my job to call balls and strikes and run for election let the voters simply make their voice heard and that we respect that outcome also I don't believe that that the lawsuit was delicious I think that the you know was for bad attention I guess I would say I think that the other great party wants to you know once you see this come through to a conclusion but what they're proposing simply you know won't won't work they they're they're rushing the election in a way that would allow us to get an absentee ballot request out into the hands of every Ohioan clearly if you're gonna run it all built by mail election you have to be yes to be ready to make every Ohioan to to make apps developer quest available to everyone in pay the postage for them to return it and and so just the time to print those in mail those and everything else it within the time line that they've proposed but you know really not going to go any further into the specifics of that because it is a pending lawsuit so once again speaking with Ohio secretary of state Frank larose well and again I'm I'm sure you'll you'll you'll let me know if if you can't answer but it's my understanding that the Ohio Democratic Party doesn't want another primary date to vote in person just extend absentee balloting until April twenty eighth is that correct you know I believe that's what they asked for and and and I would be fine with not having a person's day I I think that you know it it's best as we've got eleven weeks between now and and your second to wait and see what happens with the the public health situation and the baby at a point in in mid April with the advice of a director acted that direction that we would make that decision at that point whether Ohio's will have a person opportunity but you know it if that's the will of the legislature that he does not have that that's that's one thing I know we can't do is we can't conclude this by the date that they mention which is April twenty eighth because there's simply no time to get the S. the ballot requests out print you know millions of a postage paid return envelopes that we need to get in fact by our estimates even if we had all the vendors that we can find cranking away on extra shifts to do printing and printing seven point two or seven point three million as develop request the postage paid envelopes and get the right addresses on the break return addresses so they come to the correct elections I mean it's it's a huge logistical task of what you're talking about is tractor trailer loads full of envelopes and that we can get it done a we can get it done by June second but there's just no way that we can get that done by April twenty eighth of this again it shouldn't be it shouldn't be and is not a party thing it's simply a matter of getting one of these apps develop requests postage paid into the hands of every Ohio and by the way that's what I'm calling on the legislature do actually just sent a letter out to all members of the General Assembly in a bipartisan way the governor fully supports my proposal to governor knives as well as the lieutenant governor it's really great to have a lieutenant governor who's a former secretary of state bus the same language all in all these kind of things the administration's firmly behind this effort we're calling it the Ohio voters first actors to give it a name and we're asking the legislature passes quickly let's be clear we shouldn't come to Columbus next week and spend a bunch of time debating the rules of how we're gonna run election people are dying people are losing their businesses families are scared I will be focused on those issues not sure the insider politics and how we're going to run a primary election the proposal that I put forward is clear we'll get it done in a way that's fair and accessible for all Ohioans and to get it done as soon as it possibly can of the General Assembly shouldn't spend their time fighting over this next week transaction whether every ten minutes on the tens from time star heating and

"Was just a case where they found a million fraudulent votes when I look at what's happened in Texas. Excuse me, reporter interrupts because actually no one did find a million fraudulent votes in California. And there's more when I look at what's happened in Texas when I look at that catastrophe that took place in Florida. Whether Republican candidates kept getting less and less and less, Republicans got less and less as more and more mail in ballots were counted in Texas, the president's referring to unproven claims that tens of thousands of non-citizens voted illegally acclaimed. State officials have since walked back increasingly politicians are using words like fraud to describe things they don't like about the voting process or that might be unfavorable to them. It's really inappropriate for elected officials who know better that voter fraud election fraud is extremely rare. Chris Thomas ran elections in the state of Michigan for thirty six years, and it's pretty much seen at all. He says unsubstantiated claims of fraud only confused voters and a rude public confidence. He thinks that. That's a bigger threat to voting than fraud or other irregularities by nine at that confidence. It's just one more kind of chink in the armor. If you will. That undermines our democracy. Ohio secretary of state Frank Larose is also disturbed by the trend and is working with other election officials to encourage more thoughtful debate, he says, unfortunately politicians have found that such rhetoric works. If you want to get your basic cited if you want to get people to donate to your campaign, if you want to get people to show up at your rally, you push that hyperbole button. You do the fear mongering about widespread fraud or widespread suppression,.

It didn't dawn on me that that that could actually be the case. But you know, if that is not just campaign rhetoric.

"On everything from the Beatles onstage volume wars, the making of his new album Egypt station on capitol records. Jomon George about who would. Loudest degree. Okay. Look lists seven just see George. Tool go nine and then John Reid. Tools ism. Man. You don't Mike goes. But other than that, we played music. It came good for more. Great conversations like this search and follow inside the studio on heart radio. I subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts. Okay. Let's you and I get into it. Of course. I can't have on candidates today before the election because that would mean that dot had equal time to all the other candidates. So we put on someone running for governor. And there might be seven or eight people running for the governorship of Ohio. You don't think Mike dewine most likely person to win? Because Mike's a good guy and Mike understands opioid addiction. Mike spin around and Mike's promised to implement marijuana medical marijuana. I like, Mike dewine. But if I put Mike dewine on the only got six or seven others, I gotta put on going to be boring. So if I could put on Franklin rose, I would put on Frank Larose who's running for secretary of state. He's an American war hero and a veteran, but I can't put on Frank Larose. Because if I put on Frank Larose have to run on the person he's running against now might be too. It's your others running. So you don't put them on. So as I often do the day before an election or day of the election. If you want to advocate without putting the candidate on. I can't do that four or against Kathleen, CLYDE, who's running against Frank Larose. Our airwaves yours to see. Why you would think for example, a Steve Shabat is doing a bad job? And you think after a pure of all who was convicted a couple of days ago of a campaign finance violation. Would be the better person to serve one thing. We all going to vote on. I think state issue one which reduces penalties for crimes of obtaining possessing and using illegal drugs. Everyone's in favor of criminal Justice reform. I'm in favor of it. You're in favor of it. We got to reform criminal Justice. I believe too many people are locked up for long periods of time. That should not happen. Why somebody who's a white collar criminal served twenty thirty years in prison is beyond me. How any of us are benefited when someone like when someone like Arpan back is locked up for thirty some years is beyond me because ten years if you put me in charge ten years would be the maximum sentence for white collar criminal to be locked up in prison for offenses committed. The might involve millions of dollars or billions of dollars ten years is a chunk of a person's life, but we hand out sentences twenty years thirty years forty years, and that's ridiculous. So I'm in favor of criminal Justice reform issue. One says require sentence reductions of incarcerated individuals except those incarcerated for. Murder rape or child molestation up to twenty five percent, if the individual participates rehabilitative worker educational programming. Just those words now more than ninety percent of people are locked up for a fences other than rape murder child molestation. So that would mean that ninety percent of the serious felons. And all of the state's prisons would be eligible up to twenty five percent. Now one percent is up to twenty five percent. A half. A percent is up to twenty five percent. Twenty four percent of the reduction is up to up to twenty five percent. If this constitutional amendment passed what is twenty five percent me done say reduced by twenty five percent. It says reduce up to twenty five percent. So that's a flaw in the drafting of the of the amendment you, and I wanna believe in criminal Justice reform, but the language has got to fit the intent. So when you say up to twenty five. Percent does that mean the state parole board has got you reduce every sentence by twenty-five percent? The answer is we don't know. Twenty four percent is up to twenty five percent. One percent is on the way to twenty five percents. What's the reduction? Nobody knows and it says if the individual participates in rehabilitative work or educational program, it doesn't say completed. So if Rachel's locked up for ten years in Marysville. And this says, well, it's you get reduced up to twenty five percent does that mean twenty five percent know, the language is very poor doesn't mean she has to graduate from a program for drug rehabilitation or get the GED or get some sort of work achievement. The answer is no it means you have to participate. So what does that mean participate? Secondly, it mandates that criminal offenses of obtaining possessing or using any drugs such as heroin methamphetamine, cocaine LSD. And other controlled substances cannot be classified as a felony. But only a misdemeanor. So when it says mandate that criminal offenses of obtaining, a drug such as fat as a misdemeanor. What does that mean? Obtaining does that mean if if I sell Matt Steinman if Matt's diamonds obtaining drugs for me, a drug dealer, and I'm selling him, large amounts any amount offense, and all it's a misdemeanor. The answer's yes. Under issue one. How much Fenton all what we heard from the county coroner who's a democrat that one could obtain possess and begin to use Fenton all the amount that would kill one hundred thousand people and guess what? It's a misdemeanor. What if you had ten pounds of cocaine or one hundred hundred tons I've got one hundred tons of heroin. If you possess one hundred tons of heroin. It's a misdemeanor matters that what you want. He says that's a lot of heroin. Under this issue one. You can possess at fouls and tons of heroin, and it's a misdemeanor. Is that your intent when you went criminal Justice reform? Hell, no. Just the language of this poorly written constitutional amendment. We'll give lawyers like me years of litigation. Which is a good thing we need work. No question. But on the other hand as a citizen if you're in possession of a load a methamphetamine. Your possessing a truckload a methamphetamine, it's a misdemeanor. What that's what this says. Now does that mean you at the intent to distribute? Well, I have no intent to distribute. I wanna have a lifetime supply of methamphetamine for me, and my friends, and I have no intent to distributor for profit antibody, anybody if that's the case, we'll give you a misdemeanor. No time in jail. No fine. No probation. Go and send them more. How many times forever jail time as a sentence for obtaining possessing or using such drugs until an individual's third offensive within twenty four months? So that means every two years you can commit to offenses that means every year you can commit one offense. I can possess a thousand tons of cocaine once a year and get caught and each time. It's a misdemeanor. It's like what the hell. Are we doing here? Another provision of state issue. One says to require any available funding based on projected savings to be applied to state administer rehabilitation programs and crime victim fronts require any available funds. What if the legislature says, you know, what there's no available funds? We're not. We don't have any available funds. Well, in that case, there's no money available state administer funds. And when you say going back to part one reduce up to twenty five percent. I know a whole bunch of judges judges have said to me. Well, look when I give somebody eight years in jail, I know going in they're going to get probably eighty five percent of the sentence. So I give them eight years knowing that in six years, they're going to get out a felony judge said to me. Well, look if this thing passes and my sentence will be reduced by twenty five percent. Guess what? I'll just give that guy ten years in jail. Knowing it's going to be reduced to eight the judges or know what's going on those simply give more time in jail. See this is how poorly drafted status you one is. So how can you vote? Positively. On something where the intent is good. The general feeling is criminal Justice reform rehabilitation. Everybody's in favor of that Hamilton county like every other county has twenty nine programs to handle every conceivable human ailment, if you're convicted of something they got twenty nine programs to put you in funded by the taxpayer those in the system do not want you in jail. They want you in a program functioning outside of jail. They currently have with this ballot initiative would seek to do. But it's so poorly drafted. That would have the law of unintended consequences. Someone living in Westchester and Mason. Do you want someone in possession of a thousand tons of heroin to get a misdemeanor? The answer is of course, not. But this law says unless we catch them selling to somebody. We can't assume they're going to do that we have to actually. And so it'll be litigated for years to come whether or not this constitutional amendment takes precedence over statutory language, which by the way, the constitution. Does. That's another problem with this many times when legislation is passed by the house the Senate signed by the governor of the president. There's tweaks that got to be done because well, we intended this. But after three to six months, while the practical effect was that therefore let's tweak it all right, let's tweak it we get a pass within the next several days. But if you pass a statewide constitutional amendment amending, the Ohio constitution, you cannot tweak it with an ordinance or statute, you can't tweak. It doesn't work because the constitution takes precedence over statutes over ordinances. That means we have to go through the constitutional amendment process. At the next general election, which will take millions of dollars to put it back on the ballot to tweaking. And who had hell does that? This is the worst drafted piece of crap I've seen and my years of practicing law that has the law of unintended consequences already built into it. It's not going to work. It's not what we intend I'm in favor of criminal Justice reform, but not this criminal Justice reform. Just the first few words require sentence. Reductions of incarcerated individuals except individuals incarcerated for murder rape or child molestation by up to twenty five percent. Well, who decides whether it's five percent ten percent twenty percent or up to twenty five percent or one percent. The parole board. What are the standards what's the criteria? If the if the individual participates in rehabilitative worker educational program. Now, the words not successful just show up and sit somewhere is that what you want the judges ruled simply say, I'll give the person an extra twenty five percent on the sentence. Get to exactly where we're anyway, or Secondly, it says murder rape. What about manslaughter many murder indictments are bargain down to a manslaughter? It doesn't say manslaughter says rake and says rape does it say sexual battery sexual battery is having sex with an individual not capable of giving consent. So if you knock a woman out or you give her a HDTV drug or you have sex with someone underage that's called sexual battery. That's not rape is that included in that. Or not don't know child molestation is a sexual battery is gross sexual imposition. What is? Is it is a sexual imposition. It's a contributing to the delinquency of a minor. It doesn't say that says child molestation. What does that mean? It looks like non-lawyers drafted this. So if I represented somebody who was indicted on murder bargain it down to a manslaughter. I would say, well, it's my client serving time on a manslaughter. It wasn't murder, but he's covered by this. Then the other side of the fence goes say, wait a minute. We have to I'm textualist. What is the text of the amendment says it says murder, it doesn't say voluntary manslaughter done say involuntary manslaughter at done say next homicide and then save behavioral homicide. So in other words, that means they participate or they don't participate. Heck, I don't know don't know in up to twenty five percent. What does that mean who determines? Well, one percent is not quite twenty-five who decides along that chain between one percent and twenty five percent, the parole board, what are the standards? So we don't know yet. This thing is ridiculous..

"Perfect, man. It was funny because you were on the show has been a couple of months ago. Right. And you you fell in love with in buying it that day that that's what happens when you walk into the shop here. So I'm coming into radio. I know I'm probably walking out with something. You should tell tell slowed about him. And you are you have your pause your hand on what is going on especially in Ohio, but nationwide too, right? Tell us what what's your thoughts. I mean, there's a lot of energy out there there is there is look people looked at the confirmation hearing for Justin kit Justice cavenaugh that was taking place. They saw how the Democrats were acting and people realize that like, look if you turn the house of representatives over to the Democrats, you're going to see that same kind of circus. We saw Justice cavenaugh it's going to be investigations. It's going to be acrimony. It's gonna be character assassination. And frankly, it's going to be an attempt to teach your president. So there's a lot at stake in this election. But man, the momentum is really picking up for us right now is Inuit night. I look we're having not car here. But we're having a Greek guy on here a little bit later to with us. Frank Larose is gonna join us Brian, and what a wonderful man in especially someone that you'd want up to their office. But I was going to ask them, you know, you try to step back and say, I'm going to be a good citizen, and I'm not gonna just pull the lever for the are. Because it's. Republican I want to pull it for the person who shares my views, but when it comes to to gun violence and second amendment all too often. I try try to be open minded. But all too often. It's like the other side, they are just ignorant to the topic. And I find myself saying, there's no way they haven't given us any reason to think, otherwise we're doing stories today that are just outrageous. I'm thinking at least bring someone in your camp who who can talk the basic talks to come up with the solution because they're so outraged that is the frustrating part. You have the you have all these talking heads that spout. Like, here's one families versus assault rifle. That's the name of the group that group, you know, and is like, and then I've been reading this other one you gave me Eric and all the things that together, we must do this this this and this, and I'm reading it. I'm thinking what a bunch of baloney, and this that one specifically was a Bloomberg. It was. All the organizations that you know, require all gun dealers sellers and owners to report stolen guns already law already already has been a law prohibit the sale under the national firearms act and that of semi-automatic military style weapon NFA addresses short barreled rifles in fully automatic weapons. Right. So I don't know what they're talking about. Here's one they like to coin their own words, and these are military style weapons that fire velocity rounds. I looked up what the definition of a lot. That is like, you know, if you're gonna go through this exercise of putting out this this bullcrap get people that know the business that can help that can really help.

"Welcome back to town hall Ohio were today. We're sharing the comments of to folks would like to be your next secretary of state democrat, Kathleen, CLYDE, Republican Frank Larose. We flipped a coin. And MS CLYDE got to go. I in this first segment. So we begin today's segment following up on my conversation with Frank Larose and cheering a few of his thoughts. Mr. Larose, you'll have very specific duties as secretary of state, but you'll also be looked at as a statewide leaders. You look at Ohio, what are the top three challenges, you think Ohioans face, and where can government help. Sure. Well, you know, we have a variety of challenges and opportunities as a state, and and that's I guess how I how I view things. I think first and foremost is our economy. We we have an economy that's moving in the right direction. But we still have people that are underemployed that are not earning a wage. That is enough to support their families. And so the continuing to grow house economy the right way again through free market principles through entrepreneurship through private sector, growth and development. That's the that's the goal that I have. And I think that there are a few things that government can do a lot of it has to do with setting the stage. But then getting out of the way, we need to invest in good public infrastructure. We need to invest in public education in public safety. But then we need to set a tax structure that doesn't penalize success, and we need to create a regulatory environment that yeah, does the the basic things to protect Aaron water and health and the safety of working families, and that kind of thing, but then stays out of the way of Ohio's job, creators. I think the economy is is I I think something else that we're really wrestling with as a state right now is this opioid crisis and the drug crisis in general. This is something that that I've put a lot of work into Senate Bill one which was signed by the governor just a few weeks ago as a Bill of mine that cracks down on Fenton, all traffickers, as we know this impacts every. Ohio every neighborhood rural urban and everything in between. And and this is something that we need to focus on treatment. You know, incarcerating traffickers is important. Sure. But treatment is even more important. The final thing I would say, and this is I think something I view as a as a as a challenge that my generation will take up and that is getting our civics to work again getting citizenship to work again, creating an environment world can engage in a process and feel confident that their vote will have have an impact and also engage in a civil way. I think that we've gotten to this point where to many people have a sort of tribal view of things, and I use that word intentionally I should be able to get along with my friends on the other side of the aisle. I should be able to get along with people that have different views than me as still respect them. And we've gotten to this point where where people have sorta dug into I'm a Republican or democrat. And that's that's all they think about bringing civility. Back to to to government bring civility back to Ohio civic life is something that I really care about and really trying to have a robust public conversation about how we increase civic engagement in Ohio, something I care a lot about about thirty seconds. You mentioned infrastructure. What would be one of the top priorities, you think we should have? So I serve as Senate transportation chairman of I've done that for for the last few years. You know, I think the motor fuel tax is not necessarily keeping pace with our needs for how we invest, and and looking at what we do as a long term sustainable strategy for financing public infrastructure is important. So as you look at your role, MS CLYDE as as secretary of state and a state wide leader in general map out. What you think are the three biggest challenges that Ohioans face today. And how you might help address those challenges. Please great question. I. Have a lot to say there. But I'll try to keep it a few minutes. I with the need for fair districts in our state Ivette really addresses every issue on the spectrum. Whether we have a legislature that is Representative of Ohio, and whether it be the partisanship of Ohio or women minorities. Just what Ohio looks like that will help us move our state forward in a way that helps all Ohioans. So that's an important role of the secretary of state. I second is the chief elections official. We need to have fair and secure elections. We have some problems with security of our outdated equipment, and we know that there have been attempts to hack into Ohio's elections. So I have a cybersecurity plan. We would make sure that we move Ohio towards voter marked voter verified paper ballots systems. Are we require our routine audits to make sure that the machines have not been compromised in any way? And also, we would have a cybersecurity director in the secretary of state's office and a bipartisan council to advise that cybersecurity director as these. These issues of hacking are constantly advancing and getting tougher. Ted. Make sure we root out and last and certainly not least we need to make it easier to start and grow a business in our state. I have a plan to do that. I I I I would make sure that we streamline the services available to businesses who are working with the secretary of state. There can be some complications and confusion if you look at the current website are we need to extend the office hour, so working people I have somebody they can call if they need help. Maybe if they're starting a business on the side and third we wanna make it free for a veteran to register business in Ohio. They've served their country for us. And I think that's the least we can do our from the secretary of state's office democrat, Kathleen CLYDE candidate for secretary. State and before her Frank Larose Republican candidate for the same office. We'll hear more from both of them and just couple of moments here on townhall, Ohio whic, reminder, if you'd like more details on the candidates, some more questions background on.

"A couple next question. So quick a quick follow up. You gave us your personal background. How about your professional background? What what have you been doing the job wise that would help you be secretary of state? Great question. Thank you. So I am again, I said Frahm Portage county, and I am an attorney. I went to law school at Ohio State, no box. And I practiced in a small town law firm, helping businesses navigate the very processes that the secretary of state overseas when it comes to elections, I served as an election official. I was the director of the early vote center in Franklin county in two thousand eight when sixty thousand people came through. I have studied election law at Ohio State. There's an election Law Center there really boned up and became an expert and misfield. I also clerked in the secretary of state's office when I was in law school, and I feel I have the experience that you need to be chief elections official. I've also had the honor of being the ranking member in the Ohio house on the committee where elections legislation and redistricting legislation comes through this is going to be quick to hard to answer in in thirty or forty seconds here. But he said make life easier for Ohio, and you talked about how that applies largely to to to business registrations. And to elections what else would make life easier for Ohioans? I would say that right now we unfortunately, have a culture of corruption in Columbus. And our government is not working for people. And I said ordinary people what we need to do is is stop that culture of corruption. These two FBI investigations paid a play and we need to start working for everyday Ohioans again. And that's what I wanna do a secretary of state, Kathleen, CLYDE, the democratic candidate for secretary of state. Her opponent is Frank Larose. We began our conversation with Mr. Larose the same way by asking him to get himself introduced to all of you. Absolutely. Thank you so much. Well, my name's Frank Larose grew up in summit county, and for me as a young man there were really two formative experiences that crafted and shaped who I am today. One of them was being a member of a boy scout troop. That was led by a World War Two veteran, and that man's my hero still with us at ninety five years old, and he landed on the beaches of Normandy as a twenty something and liberated the concentration camp, and then came back to to mentor young men through the boy scout program, and so that was kind of my inspiration for serving. And and why enlisted when I was eighteen but the other formative experience for me. Was working on a farm, and it was it's Mark benders farm on minor road and Copley high. Oh, in fact, in my campaign, literature, you know, every candidate wants to have that picture with a farmer, and sometimes they just take a staffer and put a tractor head on them or something. And and and call that a a photo with a far wouldn't gonna do that. I went to I went to bender's and and got a photo with the real deal. The man I worked for as a young, man. I started working there when I was probably thirteen or fourteen. I remember my folks had to drive me there. And I learned a lot from him. And from the others learned to to get the job done to work hard to see it through to completion. And and things aren't always gonna go your way, but you stick to it. And so after after ten years in the army, I went to school to a high of state earned a business degree. And although my head was telling me to go out into the business world and earn a living that way, my heart was telling me to run for office. And I've spent seven years in the state Senate as a result of that. And now proud to be running for secretary of state real quick family members. I've got a wife and three beautiful little girls and a three year old five year old and a seven year old. Learn I got married, right? When I came home from from my most recent deployment to Iraq. And we live in Hudson Ohio today. So tell us about your view of the proper role of government in her everyday lives, please. Well, I guess this is why I've chosen to to affiliate myself as a Republican because I think that the proper role of government is one that's limited. I believe in free market economies. I think that that perhaps the best way to unleash human potential and opportunity for people to really live a good life is through free market practices. I don't think that government control of academies has worked anywhere. It's been tried. In fact, when it every time, it is tried it results in great human suffering. I believe in in limiting government's interactions in into the private sector and interventions in the private sector. And that's why I've worked a lot on things like regulatory. Perform, and I always joke that when I started talking about regulatory reform people's eyes glaze over, but you know, that this is not owning stuff. It's we're talking about getting state government out of the way. So that Ohio farmers can thrive. Ohio small business can thrive. These are things. I've worked a lot on including Bill that I've got right now that cuts this tie between agencies that charge fines and being able to keep that money for their budget. This is a an idea whose time has come. I believe it actually came out of a bipartisan regulatory reform task force. And the fact is when a state agency collects fines right now, they get to keep that money and put it in their budget, and that creates a backward incentive, we should cut. Those those ties when an agency collects fines that money should go to the to the treasury the general revenue fund, but not the agency that charged. So you're running to be secretary of state as you look at the tasks of that that office talk to our listeners if you would please about what the most important pieces of of your job will be for them. Yeah. I always say that one of my first challenges when I speak somewhere to explain to people what does the secretary of state due. What's the role of of Ohio secretary of state, and I joke that some people don't know we have a secretary state. And in some probably think that the Ohio secretary of state must be in charge of negotiating peace treaties with Michigan. I can assure you that's not the case. And I would never negotiate peace treaties with Michigan. Even if that was a a responsibility of the office what it is is the chief elections officer for the state of Ohio and the place where all new businesses start. Or as I say, this is an office that safeguards to things that are fundamental to our way of life free markets and free elections as as as free markets go it's the place where any new business start. So whether it's my great grandfather eighty years ago in Italian immigrant that started our family business, or whether it's a woman here in Ohio today that wants to start her small business, she'll go on the secretary's website and get her documents in order to to to do that. And so that to me is inspiring and something that I will work hard to. Courage small business in Ohio on the free election side. It's well understood that the Ohio secretary of state works with all eighty eight county boards of elections to make sure that we run elections that are fair and secure and acceptable to every eligible, Ohio. And and that's something I'm very passionate about we got thirty seconds. How are we doing in having a fair and acceptable opportunity to vote in Ohio? I think that Ohio elections are among the best in the nation. And we have to keep it that way when we have an election. We have observers that come from all over the world to learn how we do it and bring tips home. And and that's something that we should be proud of. But it's not the secretary of state that does that it's eighty eight county boards of elections working really hard every day that is Republican Frank Larose and before him democrat, Kathleen, CLYDE, both want to be Ohio's next secretary of state, and we'll hear more from both of those candidates in just a few moments. Do wanna take a minute to remind you that this is just one in a series of shows, which we're having in all of the candidates for statewide office.
