Faber Names DiRossi Budget Director for Senate GOP Caucus

Late Monday, Senate President Keith Faber (R-Celina) announced that he has named Ray DiRossi as the director of budget and finance for the Senate GOP Caucus. He replaces long-time budget staffer Brian Perera, who took a position with Ohio State University last year. (See The Hannah Report, 9/30/14.)

A longtime veteran of the legislative process, DiRossi brings more than 23 years of experience working for and with the General Assembly, including six years as deputy finance director in the Ohio Senate and four years as finance director in the Ohio House. 

DiRossi has worked with six Senate presidents (Stan Aronoff, Richard Finan, Doug White, Bill Harris, Tom Niehaus and Faber) and one House Speaker (Husted), the Senate noted in the release. "As a legislative staff member, he played a key role in the passage of five state operating budgets, among other major fiscal policies enacted throughout the past two decades." 
“Ray brings to the job an incredible depth of knowledge and experience in an era of term limits that makes both of those qualities invaluable,” Faber said in the release. “I look forward to the counsel he’ll provide to our members as we get into another budget process in the weeks ahead.”
