Governor elect John Kasich has selected Randy Meyer to be the state's next Inspector General.
Governor to be John Kasich has named Randy Meyer as the state's next Inspector General. Meyer currently works as Chief of Investigations in the Auditor's Special Investigations Unit. He's credited with recovering millions of dollars from fraudulent activities.
The Inspector General's office has been criticized lately by some who think it has become too political. Meyer says politics won't be a factor for him.
Meyer: "When we do investigations we do not look at what letter is behind the name of the politician. It does not matter to me. We look at reasonable suspician, probable cause, and follow through with the investigation. And that's the way everything will be handled in the Inspector General's office as well."
The announcement was made in Wilmington, Meyer's home town and the place where he currently lives.
