Gov. Kasich Set to Name Nonprofit Job-Creation Panel

Governor John Kasich today is expected to announce the line-up of Ohio's new semi-private job creation panel.

JobsOhio will be charged with the economic growth role formerly played by the Ohio Department of Development. Proceeds from state liquor sales are being used as start-up money.

Spokeswoman Bethany McCorkle says a portion of the two-hour meeting will be devoted to Kasich appointing the board's nine members. Then the panel will get to work.

Kasich's jobs creation advisor Mark Kvamme is among those who could be named.
