December 2, 2009 (COLUMBUS) Erik Roush of Columbus has been named as Chief of External and Legislative Affairs for the Ohio School Facilities Commission. “Erik brings extensive knowledge of the legislative process and a background in education funding and policy,” said OSFC Executive Director Richard C. Murray.
In addition to his role as liaison to the Ohio General Assembly, Roush will serve as a policy advisor to the Director. He will also lead the agency’s outreach to other state agencies and a variety of stakeholders including educational organizations.
Roush, a doctoral candidate at the Ohio State University’s School of Educational Policy and Leadership, joins the Commission after having served both as Policy Advisor on Education to Governor Ted Strickland and as Finance Director for the Senate’s Democratic Caucus.
Roush holds a Master’s in Public Administration and a Bachelor’s in Political Science, both from Ohio University.
