The OMA Board of Directors this week met with three of the four Republican candidates for governor in next fall’s general election: Attorney General Mike DeWine, Secretary of State Jon Husted and Congressman Jim Renacci. Lt. Governor Mary Taylor was unable to attend due to schedule conflicts.
Directors listened to the candidates’ plans for Ohio, specifically plans for growing the Ohio economy and supporting manufacturing. Wide-ranging conversations were had about the issues that impact manufacturing competitiveness: workforce development, taxes, energy costs, environmental regulation, logistics, health care costs, infrastructure, and more.
The board also had a visit from Republican Party Chairman, Jane Timken, who talked about progress in Washington under President Trump and next year’s important state elections. 9/14/2017
