Memo To Attorney General Office Employees


UPDATED: Wednesday August 27, 2008 11:27 AM

It is with a great deal of emotion that I write to acknowledge that Attorney General Marc Dann has resigned.  Until Governor Ted Strickland appoints a successor, I will - as the First Assistant Attorney General - act in his place.

It is a sad day, but I am confident in the knowledge that you - the more than 1,400 dedicated public servants of this office - will continue to do your jobs in the Office of the Attorney General.  Collectively, you span the terms of seven Attorneys General.  You enjoy a nationwide reputation as aggressive and professional advocates for the people of Ohio.

I know in my heart that your dedication will continue as I assume my new assignment.  I am proud to be associated with all of you.
