Mark will support policies that focus on jobs and investment in people. Small business growth is the engine of job creation, and he will work with local business leaders to market our area to entrepreneurs and existing businesses that have yet to discover the advantages Richland County provides. He will combine his efforts with the State of Ohio's development arm, JobsOhio, to ensure Richland County has a seat at the economic development table.
Small businesses have existing job openings waiting to be filled by skilled workers, but they lack the qualified applicants. With a properly trained and educated workforce available, Richland County can lead the revitalization of Ohio's economy. To help Richland County be a leader in change and growth, Mark will work to restore and enhance vocational training in our schools and community colleges to provide job opportunities for our middle class families.
