The Overlooked Lieutenant Governor Candidates
Leading up to the recent elections we focused on congressional candidates for senate and house seats and to a lesser extent candidates for governor. However, very little attention was given to the candidates for lieutenant governor. In Ohio I don't think anything was said during the election regarding Mary Taylor who will be sworn in as lieutenant governor in a couple months. Taylor is finishing a successful term as state auditor after serving in the Ohio House of Representatives. Unlike most politicians who tend to be lawyers, Taylor's background is as an accountant (CPA). Somewhat more attention was paid to Jennifer Carroll, the second seat on the GOP gubernatorial ticket in Florida. However, that is only because her son, Nolan Carroll is a rookie with the Miami Dolphins. Like Taylor, Carroll had a different path to politics. She enlisted in the Navy out of high school. She went on to serve 20 years retiring as a Lieutenant Commander.
