Congressman Tim Ryan Endorses Lis Kenneth Regula for Portage County Auditor
Ravenna, OH — Congressman Ryan today proudly announced his endorsement of Lis Kenneth Regula to be the next Portage County Auditor.
“I’m proud to endorse Lis Kenneth Regula for Portage County Auditor,” said Rep. Tim Ryan. “After sitting down with him several times, I’ve seen for myself that he has the skills and experience to help the county thrive. I hope you’ll consider giving him your vote in November.”
“Lis Kenneth Regula’s experience in public service and financial management make him the strongest choice for Portage County auditor. His plan to modernize the office will provide a convenient and efficient process of conducting county business. And as a father, educator, and nonprofit leader, Mr. Regula can be trusted to assess property values with integrity and fairness towards all,” said Rep. Tim Ryan.
Mr. Regula’s plan for Portage County would:
- Modernize the Auditor’s office. We’re way past the days of pencil and paper. Updating the office would be an efficient way to conduct business more conveniently.
- Start a traveling Auditor’s office, so people can submit paperwork, file business licenses, and ask questions at their local city hall or library, instead of driving to the county building in Ravenna.
- Conduct property evaluations with scientific precision, fairness, and honesty.
Lis Kenneth Regula has a statistics background. He teaches biology at University of Akron.
As a scientist, Regula has the statistics, data, and analytic background to succeed as auditor. From professor to auditor, the common thread is serving the public. Teaching offers an important public service, and so does managing our county’s finances.
Previously, he owned a small business which offered natural parenting products. He also founded Edible Kent, a community gardening nonprofit. His hobbies also include beekeeping and woodworking. Regula lives in Kent with his 12-year-old son, Kenny.
