JobsOhio is the public-private agency Governor John Kasich formed. It gives Ohio tax dollars to private companies that promise to create jobs. Gov. Kasich loves to talk about it, but he’s not telling the whole story.

Last week, the Dayton Daily News reported that six of nine JobsOhio board members benefit from the incentives the agency gives. The Kasich-appointed board members are invested in companies that receive JobsOhio tax breaks! Even the governor is padding his pockets from JobsOhio, receiving compensation from a company that got JobsOhio funding.

Will you sign your name to tell Gov. Kasich to show conflicts of interest and allow an audit of JobsOhio to make sure that it serves Ohio’s taxpayers and not corporate interests?
