COLUMBUS – Today, House Democratic Leader Tracy Maxwell Heard (D-Columbus) responded to the recent release of JobsOhio’s self-published 2013 report, showing Ohio has gained some 17,000 jobs in the last year:

“If the new standard of success for job creation in Ohio is simply not to lose jobs, we have a long way to go. 31,000 more Ohioans are out of a work than at this time last year, and we’re 45th in the nation for job creation. We are clearly falling behind.”
