Columbus - 
State Senator Troy Balderson was recognized this week as a "Watchdog of the Treasury" for his commitment to fiscal discipline during the 129th General Assembly.

"As a State Senator, I feel an obligation to exercise wisdom in the way the state government spends Ohioans hard-earned tax dollars," Balderson said. "In difficult economic times such as those we have experienced the past few years, it becomes even more important that the state practice fiscal restraint, just as we do in our own households."

The Watchdog award, given by the United Conservatives of Ohio, is awarded once every two years to legislators who have shown wise financial judgment and exercised fiscal restraint as a lawmaker.
Senator Balderson represents the 20th Senate District of Ohio, which is made up of Athens, Coshocton, Guernsey, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, and Washington Counties. Find him online at
