Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants Endorses Sherrod Brown for Re-Election

Ohio Society of CPAs Noted Sherrod’s Ability To Take On His Party’s Leadership On Their Behalf, Called His Leadership “Invaluable”

COLUMBUS — The Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants (OSCPA) has endorsed Senator Sherrod Brown for re-election to the United States Senate. Sherrod serves on the Senate Finance Committee and as ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee, leading bipartisan efforts to cut red tape for Ohio businesses and put more money back in workers’ pockets.

Sherrod earned OSCPA’s endorsement in 2006 and 2012. OSCPA noted Sherrod’s accessibility as one of the reasons he has again earned their endorsement this year.

“Senator Brown has been an advocate on some very difficult issues for OSCPA — including taking on his own leadership for the betterment of the CPA profession,” said Scott Wiley, President & CEO of the Ohio Society of CPAs. “His leadership on our issues has been invaluable. Even when he disagrees with us, he works to find a solution to make improvements. He is always accessible to hear our concerns, he’s fair, and he has a strong record of championing our issues.”

Wiley also noted that Sherrod is the lead sponsor of the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act — priority legislation for the organization — and has worked with Ohio CPAs to stave off harmful regulatory changes.

“For so many Ohio families and businesses, CPAs offer relief from a stressful, sometimes confusing process — that’s why it’s been so important to hear the concerns of the Ohio Society of CPAs and its members as the Senate considers changes that would impact their profession,” said Senator Sherrod Brown. “I am grateful to the Ohio Society of CPAs for their support in my campaign and for our ongoing relationship. Together, we will continue to work to find commonsense, bipartisan ways to simplify our tax process, make it easier for Ohioans to get professional tax advice, and help working Ohioans see more of their paychecks.”
