Ken Blackwell’s appointment at FRC was noted by the Associated Press, where he is quoted,
“They (FRC) asked me to sort of build up the economic and fiscal dimension and show how that is an important part of what they do and what they find to be important. One of the areas where Buckeye and FRC share a public policy interest is in the area of advancing school choice and parental empowerment. It’s 21st century civil rights,” Blackwell said.
Blackwell, a former state treasurer, is well-suited to discuss economic issues, but his position against abortion and on other issues will allow him to speak to many constituencies, FRC President Tony Perkins said.
“Ken is well rounded as a former (Cincinnati) mayor, secretary of state, gubernatorial candidate. He has a well-rounded conservative portfolio,” Perkins said. “He has consistent conservative positions and he has not been bashful.”
Please come and welcome Ken Blackwell.
