Dave Yost is the prosecuting attorney for Delaware County, Ohio, bordering Columbus to the north. Dave has gained a reputation for aggressively representing the people in criminal court or in civil matters. With the support of his family and the backing of numerous Republican Party leaders, Dave Yost is now a candidate in the race for Ohio Attorney General in 2010.
Dave is running for Attorney General because he believes it is time to return a real prosecutor with a proven track record in the courtroom to Ohio’s top law enforcement office. He is also convinced that his conservative beliefs and tough-on-crime approach best suit the needs of our state at this critical juncture.
Dave Yost has over two decades of public service. Since 2003 he has served the people of Delaware County as their Prosecuting Attorney. Prior to that, he served Ohio’s fastest growing county as County Auditor, the county’s Chief Fiscal Officer.

He defended portions of Megan’s Law against claims of unconstitutionality in both federal and state courts. He has also testified before the Ohio General Assembly on criminal justice issues and tax policy.
