Mandel: Cuts big and small lead to $1.6 million surplus for Ohio

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A new report from the Office of Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel says the state will head into next year with a projected $1.6 million surplus. 

Mandel says about $944,000 of that came from reductions in payroll, but that other small cost cutting measures helped as well.

"We shut off unused phone lines, unused fax lines, re-negotiating cell phone contracts, we stopped plant watering contracts, we said we can walk around the office with a bucket and do it on our own, big things and small we've made significant cuts," said Mandel.

Mandel, who is running for United States Senate against incumbent Senator Sherrod Brown, also responded to criticism about not personally attending Oho Board of Deposit meetings. Mandel say he has staffers who attend those meetings, while he is focusing on the bottom line for taxpayers.
