Doug Green, of Mt. Orab, has announced his candidacy for the Ohio House of Representatives 66th District.
Green has been the a Brown County elected official for more than 26 years and is currently the Brown County Auditor.
Green, one of seven children, said that his family has always been active in farming operating a small family business, serving their country in the military and in their church.
He said he had been taught as a youth to savor the satisfaction obtained by using his God-given talents.
“I started singing gospel music at the age of six, with my family,” he said. “I consider myself fortunate to have grown up in a family environment where I learned early in life, the valuee of hard work and dedication, leadership and being financially responsible is very important.”
Green is involved in numerous organizations including the Western Brown Alumni Association, Mt. Orab Lions Club and the Brown County Chamber of Commerce.
“As a pro-life candidate,” Green said, “I have strongly supported our local Brown County Pregnancy Resource Center and as a member of the National Rifle Association, I have locally supported Ducks Unlimited and The national Wild Turkey Federation.”
As Brown County Auditor, Green serves as the county’s chief fiscal officer, chief assessor, chief payroll officer and sealer of weights and measures.
“I know what it’s like to operate and provide quality service to taxpayers, consumers, school districts and local government, with limited resources,” Green said. “It is my responsibility to see that the funds of Brown County are spent legally and that the tax revenues are distributed properly.”
Green said he had also worked for the late Jim Sauls at Saul’s Construction in Clermont County, at the Ohio Department of Transportation, Trinity Freight Car Company in Mt. Orab and Brown County Habilitation Center.
He said that he feels he has been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Republican leadership with people like Senator Cooper Snyder, Doug White from Adams County, and former state representative from Clermont County, Rose Vesper, Tom Niehaus and current State Representative Colonel Danny Bubp.
Bubp is prohibited by term limits from running for State Representative in 2012.
“I will represent the strong, conservative values of the citizens of Brown County and the 66th District, because I live them,” Green said.
