A state representative with ties to the Valley announced his plans to run for state auditor earlier this week. Thursday, he was in Youngstown campaigning.

State Rep. John Patrick Carney of Columbus has served three terms as a state legislator. His parents are from Youngstown and later moved the family to Cleveland where Carney was born and raised.

Carney spent years as a healthcare attorney before getting into politics.

“From my perspective, we need to be investing in good paying jobs for the people in the Mahoning Valley, making sure that they’re getting the greatest band out of their buck from their state government. I’m going to ensure that happens here in the Mahoning Valley,” said Carney. “In my time in the Legislature, a lot of attention has been paid to looking out for wealthy people and not nearly as much as there should be looking out for working and middle class people.”

Carney will be returning to the Valley in six weeks.
