Join GCP for a Morning Conversation featuring Ohio Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted as he addresses how Ohio is adapting our state economy to rise to the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis. This series is generously sponsored by PNC.
A Northwest Ohio native and University of Dayton graduate, Lt. Governor Husted previously served as the Vice-President for Economic Development at the Dayton-Area Chamber of Commerce. He first ran for office in 2000, going on to serve as a state representative, Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives and State Senator.
Lt. Governor Husted was first elected Ohio Secretary of State in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. In this role, he made it his mission to make Ohio the best state in the Midwest to do business by improving customer services and reducing wait times for entrepreneurs. He also reduced the cost for starting a business in the state by 21%—making Ohio the least costly state in the Midwest to start and maintain a new business.
Lt. Governor Husted was elected to his current position in 2018. As Lieutenant Governor, he oversees the Ohio Common Sense Initiative and serves as the Director of both the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation and InnovateOhio.
