Ed FitzGerald Calls For JobsOhio Transparency
Democrat Ed FitzGerald, whoâ€™s running for governor, unveiled a list of changes heâ€™d 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.
â€œThe truth is that when you have loans that make sense and grants that actually make sense, youâ€™re not secretive about them, youâ€™re 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 donâ€™t think itâ€™s 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 JobsOhioâ€™s success.
