Ed FitzGerald Calls For JobsOhio Transparency
Democrat Ed FitzGerald, whoâs running for governor, unveiled a list of changes heâd like to see at JobsOhio if he were to take office. He says the private, non-profit job creation group should adopt these suggestions in order to be more transparent and efficient. The Cuyahoga County executive called for sunshine law requirements, public audits, Â and revamped ethical standards among other proposals. FitzGerald says the current JobsOhio system is not producing at a high level and believes implementing these changes will boost productivity. âThe truth is that when you have loans that make sense and grants that actually make sense, youâre not secretive about them, youâre happy to engage the public." FitzGerald said. "I also think that it would create an environment where more businesses would actually be comfortable participating in the process because they donât think itâs a secretive process where you have to know the right person in order to get consideration.â? The gubernatorial challenger would also implement performance standards to best measure JobsOhioâs success.
