Columbus - 
State Senator Kevin Bacon (R - Village of Minerva Park) was recently honored for his commitment to fiscal responsibility during the 129th General Assembly, receiving the "Watchdog of the Treasury" Award from the United Conservatives of Ohio (UCO). Bacon received the award during a recent event in Columbus.

As a member of the Senate Finance Committee, Senator Bacon helped craft the current state budget, which closed a multi-billion shortfall without raising taxes on Ohio families. He has also supported legislation that calls for regular performance audits of state agencies and the creation of the Common Sense Initiative, which helps identify and eliminate burdensome rules and regulations that are impediments to economic development in Ohio.

"Ohioans expect their elected officials to be good stewards of their tax dollars - especially in today's economy," Bacon said. "I am proud of the work the Ohio Senate has done in spending our limited dollars in those areas where they can be most effective, and I am honored to be recognized as a 'watchdog' for Ohio taxpayers."

The United Conservatives of Ohio advocate for public policy that promotes free enterprise, low taxes and greater efficiency in government.
Senator Bacon represents the 3rd Ohio Senate District, which includes portions of Franklin County. For more information, please visit
