Hottinger, Stebelton named Watchdogs of Treasury

COLUMBUS—State Representatives Jay Hottinger (RNewark) and Gerald Stebelton (R-Lancaster) were recently awarded Watchdog of the Treasury Awards. The award recognizes key legislators or policymakers every year who work tirelessly to restore responsible limited government, lower taxes, encourage free enterprise and regulatory relief, and promote personal freedom.

It was Hottinger’s eighth Watchdog award. “I try to view my votes and decisions in a fiscally conservative manner to ensure that Ohio’s tax dollars are spent as wisely as possible and reciving this award again is a validation of this continuous effort,” he said. “I appreciate this recognition of my efforts on behalf of Ohio taxpayers.”

“I am very pleased to be recognized by the United Conservatives of Ohio,” said Stebelton. “I pledge to continue to work towards reducing the burden of a bloated government and reducing waste. The people of Ohio want a government that functions to protect the lives and liberties of its residents. We should be encouraging economic success, not punishing it.”
