State Representative Doug Green (R-Mt. Orab) and members of the House Manufacturing and Workforce Development Committee yesterday held a regional hearing in Lima, as part of several events lawmakers participated in prior to Governor John Kasich’s State of the State address. The committee was a joint event with the Ohio Senate’s Workforce and Economic Development Committee.

Specifically, the committee members heard testimony from 10 individuals from career centers and workforce groups within the Lima area. The witnesses offered insight into their workforce development needs and how improving the state’s workforce development efforts will bolster the manufacturing and job creation.

“I believe our career centers throughout the state are poised to play a key role in training to provide the skilled employee pool to encourage businesses to invest in our state,” said Rep. Green.

The hearing was held at the Apollo Career Center, which provides career training to high school and adult students, and affords them the opportunity to make significant contributions to the community and economy.
