State representatives from Central Ohio applauded Friday's announcement that Amazon will be expanding its operations into Ohio, expected to add about 1,000 jobs in the state over the next several years.

"I am happy to hear that Amazon has chosen New Albany for one of their data centers,” said State Rep. Anne Gonzales (R-Westerville). “This will continue to support the economic development in the city and the region."

“Amazon's announcement today is outstanding news for Licking County and Central Ohio,” said State Rep. Scott Ryan (R-Newark). “The potential impact of Amazon's industry leading cloud computing, distribution, and related business presence is limitless. The initial job creation is fantastic, but with continued private/public cooperation, this can be just the beginning.”

“Our district is poised for a more than $300 million investment in cutting-edge technology, which is fantastic,” said State Rep. Mike Duffey (R-Worthington).  “Clearly, my efforts to help create JobsOhio are bearing fruit under the leadership of Governor Kasich.”

“I am delighted Amazon has chosen to locate in Ohio,” said State Rep. Cheryl Grossman (R-Grove City). “One thousand new jobs for Central Ohio residents is a wonderful opportunity for our region and Ohio.”

"This is an exciting opportunity for Ohio and I applaud the work of the state and local partners to bring these jobs to our community,” said Rep. Stephanie Kunze (R-Hilliard). “The impact for economic growth will further Ohio as the best place to live, work and raise a family and I am proud Hilliard was a site selected.”
