He served as an elected official in Ohio for 30 years as a member of the state legislature, a county commissioner, Ohio Secretary of State and governor from 1999 to 2007.
As governor, Taft focused on improving schools, reforming Ohio’s tax system, attracting advanced high-paying jobs, helping communities clean up polluted sites and provide better recreational opportunities for residents.
