Governor Michael V. DiSalle portrait
Description: Governor Michael V. DiSalle (1908-1981) was born in New York City and moved to Toledo with his family when he was three years old. He served as governor from 1959-1963. DiSalle faced tremendous opposition from the predominantly Republican Ohio Legislature. Nevertheless, the governor succeeded in increasing taxes on cigarettes, alcohol, gasoline, and corporations, while lowering sales taxes on other items. He also attempted to dramatically increase state expenditures, including for education, for improvements to the transportation infrastructure, for construction of new mental hospitals and correctional facilities, and for expanding the Ohio Highway Patrol.
