(COLUMBUS, July 11, 2012) — Rep. Cheryl Grossman (R-Grove City) received The Ohio Society of CPAs’ (OSCPA) Outstanding Legislator Award for her efforts on OSCPA priorities, including championing municipal tax reform efforts and legislation to improve Ohio’s economic climate in the State of Ohio.
Brendan Fitzgerald, CPA, chair of OSCPA’s Executive Board, presented the award to Grossman in front of nearly 50 CPA leaders attending OSCPA’s Thought Leader Forum June 28. Grossman is currently serving her second term in the Ohio House of Representatives and, among other efforts, is working with OSCPA, the Municipal Income Tax Uniformity Coalition and other legislators to advocate for a uniform, simplified municipal tax code in Ohio.
“This is not an annual award, but is given when a legislator makes a particularly outstanding contribution the Society believes moves Ohio in a more positive direction,” Fitzgerald said. “OSCPA’s Executive Board recognized Rep. Grossman for significantly advancing priority legislative initiatives for the well being of the state of Ohio.”
“I am honored to have received this award. My goal as a legislator is to leave Ohio in a better place than I found it when I took office,” Grossman said. “I’m confident that we will make great improvements to the business environment in our state through my partnership with The Ohio Society of CPAs and the Municipal Income Tax Uniformity Coalition.”
