From The Plain Dealer
From its creation, JobsOhio has faced criticism for its structure and approach to development in Ohio.
The brainchild of Republican Gov. John Kasich, the non-profit company is meant to be a new approach to development, operating more efficiently at the speed of business rather than the inefficient speed of government.
But more than two years after Kasich signed the law creating JobsOhio, a lawsuit remains pending before the Ohio Supreme Court that questions the constitutionality of its very existence.
At the core of the criticism is whether JobsOhio should be viewed as public or private, and as a result, how open it should be for scrutiny. Leaders of JobsOhio met with Northeast Ohio Media Group to discuss their views, and offer some response to points put forward by critics.
