STATEHOUSE - 

State Senator Gayle Manning (R–North Ridgeville) today released the following statement regarding the news that Ohio’s unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since February 2008:

“Since I joined the Senate, I’ve been focused on finding innovative new ways to get people in Northeast Ohio back to work by strengthening our focus on workforce development, streamlining regulations, and reducing our taxes.

“It is clear that what we have been doing is working. In just three years, our unemployment has plummeted from more than 9 percent down to 5.7 percent. These are more than numbers. They are people and families who are again finding opportunity and seeing Ohio as the best place in the nation to live and work.”
