State senators on Wednesday confirmed Gov. Ted Strickland's replacement pick for public safety chief, after his first choice was rejected over an aborted sting.
     
Stickrath, a veteran state agency administrator, underwent about a half hour of questions from a Senate committee on Tuesday before it voted to recommend his confirmation as Ohio public safety director, 10 Investigates' Paul Aker reported.

By contrast, predecessor Cathy Collins-Taylor's confirmation hearings in May involved two grueling days of questions about her role in a called-off contraband sting involving inmate workers at the governor's residence.

The Senate voted against confirming her, Aker reported.

Stickrath was director of the Ohio Department of Youth Services.
