Ohio Libertarian Party treasurer candidate Cantrell sees trouble ahead for state pension funds

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Matthew P. Cantrell, Libertarian Party of Ohio (LPO) candidate for Treasurer of State, says he intends to engage in interpretation and research in the pending months so come the fall General Elections – crunch time for seasoned and aspiring politicians – he can convince Ohio voters he is the best candidate to manage Ohio’s financial portfolio and the public programs that flow from it.

Cantrell, a resident of Columbus since 2004 when he moved to the capital city to work for American Electric Power, where he currently works on natural gas fuel procurement, is taking on his first run at elected public office. The M.B.A he earned at The Ohio State University in 2008 should bode well for an office whose mission is to protect and endow state funds while providing innovative financial education and resources.

Ohio’s present treasurer, Kevin Boyce, was appointed by Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland to the post when the candidate who won the office in 2006, Richard Cordray, became Ohio health insurance Attorney General in a special election in the fall of 2008. Challenging Boyce this year is Josh Mandel, a Republican state lawmaker and Iraq war veteran, who has energized a race for an otherwise down ticket office that should he win could confirm whether Republicans will again be accepted into the good graces of Ohio voters, who mostly threw them out of office in the past two election cycles.
