Pat Tiberi's Statement on Appointment of Prosecutor Joe Deters
Governor Mike DeWine has selected Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters to an empty seat on the Ohio Supreme Court. This appointment was made possible by the election of Sharon Kennedy, Pat Fischer and Pat DeWine, three candidates the Ohio Business Roundtable endorsed on the November 2022 ballot.
Pat Tiberi, President and CEO of the Ohio Business Roundtable, issued the following statement regarding Joe Deters' appointment:
I applaud the Governor’s appointment of Prosecutor Joe Deters to the Ohio Supreme Court. Joe has a strong, proven track record throughout his legal tenure for upholding the law and protecting families, communities and businesses.
As is evidenced by Ohio’s many economic development victories in 2022, companies nationally and globally are recognizing our state’s advantages for business growth. With a consistent and fair justice like Joe Deters, businesses can continue to invest and grow in the Buckeye State given our court’s dependability.
Joe Deters will be sworn in January 2023.
