As Republicans and Democrats mull over whether or not they want to run for Ohio’s top office as governor, one state lawmaker has become the first to announce his bid for treasurer. 

Republican Representative Robert Sprague of Findlay says he has experience managing budgets as a small business owner and as the former auditor of Findlay.

In a video announcing his candidacy for treasurer, Sprague says he wants to pull back government rules on businesses.

A city is not immune in the case of a crash involving a stop sign that was obscured by a tree. That’s the finding of the Ohio Supreme Court.

In May, 2011, a driver ran a stop sign in Findlay and caused a crash. She was cited, but said she didn’t see the stop sign until it was too late because it was blocked by leaves and branches from a tree.
