Ohio’s Campaign for Jobs Launched
Ohio’s Campaign for Jobs, a grassroots initiative to secure passage of the major reforms contained in the Jobs Budget now before the Ohio General Assembly, was launched on April 19, 2011 by a coalition of Ohio citizens, business organizations, community groups and chambers of commerce, including the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber.
“The Chamber is excited to support a budget that responsibly addresses our budget shortfall while offering innovative ways to help Ohio regain its competitive advantage,” said Matt Davis, the Chamber’s vice president for government affairs, “This budget supports Ohio’s taxpayers and job creators and we look forward to working with the General Assembly to pass it.”
Ohio’s Campaign for Jobs is funded by the Partnership for Ohio’s Future, a not-for-profit organization formed in 2006 to help educate the public about policies that lead to more jobs, greater opportunities and a higher quality of life for Ohio citizens. The Campaign is supported by Ohioans who agree that the Jobs Budget provides a responsible, timely plan for spending, modernizing operations and supporting jobs development.
The founding members of Ohio’s Campaign for Jobs are:
ABC of Ohio
Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber
Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce
Greater Cleveland Partnership
Ohio Business Roundtable
Ohio Council of Retail Merchants
Ohio Chamber of Commerce
Ohio Grocers Association
Ohio Society of CPAs
