ATTORNEY GENERAL’S STAFF

While responding to an everincreasing list o challenges in a trying year or Ohioans, my staf andI committed ourselves to use the power o this o ceto stand up or the interests o ordinary citizens andto battle the ills that weaken our society.
Ohioans ace threats rom amultitude o individuals andentities that can best be describedas predators. These are not justviolent criminals. Predators alsoare unscrupulous businesses ordeceitul scammers who try toenrich themselves at the expenseo hardworking citizens.In 2009, my o ce identiedpredators and predatory practicesand then worked to combat them.We ound them on Wall Street,where wrongdoing by some hascontributed to misery or manyand where Ohioans who rely onthe health o their retirementinvestments were harmed. Theywere in our homes, masqueradingas a group that collects moneyor veterans in need or as ahome improvement companypromising work it never intendedto complete. And they were in ourcommunities, testing our local lawenorcement agencies and puttingour amilies at risk. This 2009 annual report describesour eforts on multiple rontsto conront those who threatenOhioans’ livelihoods. It also outlinesthe vital work we do as the state’slegal advocate.As Attorney General, I believe inapplying the o ce’s resources sowe do well by those we representin court as well as by everydayOhioans who deserve to havesomeone stand by their sideand ght to protect them. Thissummary o our work illustrateswhat I see every day — thededication and hard work o theemployees o an o ce that I amhonored to lead.
Sincerely,
Richard CordrayOhio Attorney General
