Dave Yost Biography – Dave Yost Wiki

Dave Yost is an American politician and lawyer. He is the 51st Attorney General of Ohio. He was sworn into office on January 14, 2019, “bringing with him extensive experience rooting out corruption and fraud, and fighting for increased government accountability and transparency,” according to his biography on the Ohio Attorney General’s website.

In November 2018, Yost won statewide election as Attorney General, an office in which he pursues his mission of doing big good by protecting Ohio’s citizens and aggressively fighting corruption. Major focuses of his administration have included battling the opioid epidemic, standing up for victims of human trafficking, solving cold-case homicides and sexual assaults, and shielding Ohio consumers from scammers and robocallers.

Before being elected Attorney General in November 2018, Yost served as Ohio’s 32nd Auditor of State. As Auditor, Yost’s public corruption investigations resulted in more than 170 criminal convictions, and he found more than $260 million in potential taxpayer savings.

Yost previously served for eight years as the elected Prosecutor for Delaware County, winning the first capital murder case in the county’s history and taking down the county’s largest drug ring. He stood with the victims of crime, from women and children harmed by predators to law enforcement officers injured in the line of duty.

Yost began his career as an award-winning newspaper reporter for the Columbus Citizen-Journal, and later practiced law with Burkam, Yost & Fuller in Delaware, before serving on city council and becoming the county Auditor.

Yost has spent his life looking for truth and fighting for justice. As Attorney General, he will continue this pursuit, fighting to protect Ohio families, and combating our state’s opioid epidemic.

When not in the arena, Yost makes music with his children and friends, watches Buckeye football and resists the urge to eat peanut butter ice cream.
