Morning Conversation: State Auditor Dave Yost
Greater Cleveland Partnership members are invited to Morning Conversation discussion with State Auditor Dave Yost.
Elected to a second term in November 2014, Auditor Yost continues to build a legacy of fighting fraud and “skinnying down” government.
Since 2011, he’s helped to turn more than 100 corrupt public officials into convicted criminals and identified over $22 million in stolen and misspent tax money. After taking on student attendance data rigging in his first term, Auditor Yost is currently working to bring increased accountability to Ohio’s charter schools.
Auditor Yost also helps state government, local communities and schools in becoming more efficient through performance audits, which have identified more than $200 million in potential savings.
He earned his undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University and law degree from Capital University. A former Columbus Citizen Journal reporter, Auditor Yost moved into public service as Delaware County’s auditor and prosecutor.
He and his wife, Darlene, make their home in Franklin County. They have three adult children and three grandchildren.
