Josh Mandel is facing more scrutiny about how he’s juggling politics with his day job.
The AP dropped a story Wednesday that the treasurer “hasn’t attended a single monthly meeting” of a board that decides which banks will hold billions in state deposits. “It’s common to send a designee to most meetings, but the total absence of Mandel, a first-term Republican, makes him unique among modern-era treasurers,” writes Julie Carr Smyth.
This is another opening for Democrats to paint the thirty-three-year-old Republican as someone who consistently puts his own political interests over the job he was elected to.

It would bea feat if he was able to make both events.
