Ohio has an outstanding economic development network that goes above and beyond for communities, companies and people. By working together toward a common goal, you make a difference. Site Selection Magazine’s Governor’s Cup results are a testament to this unwavering work ethic. You helped make Ohio No. 1!

As the No. 1 state for projects per capita and No. 2 for total projects overall, Ohio is the only state in the nation to place in the top three in both Governor’s Cup categories.

Your work is further reflected in the JobsOhio 2019 Annual Report, which shows impressive job creation and capital investment numbers following a record-breaking 2018 and rebuilding the project pipeline.

We are proud of the many Ohio metropolitans and micropolitans that received recognition as top communities. Whether you’re a local partner or a regional one, JobsOhio is honored and grateful to work alongside you every day.

Congratulations on your well-deserved recognition and thank you for making Ohio once again a model state for economic development.

 

Respectfully,
Your Friends at JobsOhio

Our goal is to create a new way of talking about addiction, one in which people consider the facts and practical realities of how substance use disorder affects their lives. Not long ago, Gov. Mike DeWine challenged all of us in state government to think of ways we could help Ohioans navigate the opioid crisis that has affected our state for so long. For us, that meant considering the financial effects of addiction — and providing tools and trainings to help Ohioans and financial advisers talk about addiction and access care.
