Ohio Panel Lays Out Possible Jobs Board Conflicts
Ohio’s ethics agency has warned six of nine directors of Ohio’s fledgling privatized job-creation board that their business interests raise potential conflicts of interest.
The Ohio Ethics Commission identified the six JobsOhio board members, including Chairman James Boland, along with three employees after a routine review of their confidential financial disclosure filings.
A JobsOhio spokeswoman said none of the potential conflicts amounted to anything. She said the board has not played a role in any dealings the flagged companies may have done with the state.
Paul Nick, the commission’s executive director, said conflict-of-interest findings released Thursday by the commission do not imply wrongdoing.
Critics said the potential conflicts raised more questions about JobsOhio and its influential private-sector board, which helps set Gov. John Kasich’s economic agenda.
