COLUMBUS- State Senator Frank LaRose (R-Copley) today held a roundtable discussion with local business leaders and economic development professionals on how we can best prepare our workforce for the jobs of today and tomorrow and ensure business growth in the Buckeye State.
Joining Senator LaRose was David Mustine, who serves as managing director in Ohio’s non-profit, job-creation arm, JobsOhio.
“Small businesses are the backbone of Ohio’s economy and making sure they grow and prosper is one of our top priorities,” said LaRose.
The event took place at the global headquarters of A. Schulman in Fairlawn, Ohio, where the company’s President and CEO, Joseph Gingo was on hand to host the event.
“Today’s event was about learning from our business leaders so we can be more effective in making policies that grow our private sector," added LaRose. "An added goal of today’s event was to make sure that our region’s entrepreneurs know how to access the tools already available to them so they can grow their business and put more Ohioans to work."
