Obhof Joins U.S. Small Business Administrator Linda McMahon for Conversation with Northeast Ohio's Job Creators
COLUMBUS—Senate President Larry Obhof
(R-Medina) yesterday joined Linda McMahon, head of the U.S. Small Business Administration and a member of President Trump’s cabinet, at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) to meet with small business owners from northeast Ohio. They were also joined by Greater Cleveland Partnership President and CEO Joe Roman, Tri-C President Dr. Alex Johnson and Secretary of State Frank LaRose.
McMahon led a conversation with local business owners, economic development leaders and college students about empowering the small businesses that innovate and create jobs, as well as the workers that contribute to the country’s thriving economy.
They also toured Tri-C's Manufacturing Technology Center which prepares students for in-demand careers in manufacturing jobs.
“I appreciate the leadership that Administrator McMahon and the Trump Administration are providing on issues vitally important to our job creators, such as reducing red tape, securing better trade deals and reducing taxes,” said Obhof. “Small businesses are the backbone of our state’s economy, and we must continue our efforts to compete on a global stage and help our businesses and hard-working men and women realize their full potential.”
