Ziance Quoted in Columbus Dispatch Story on JobsOhio
Scott Ziance, a partner in the Vorys Columbus office and member of the tax group, was quoted in a Columbus Dispatch story titled “JobsOhio fights to fix portrayal.” The story was about JobsOhio, the state's private, nonprofit corporation that was created by Governor Kasich to lead Ohio's job-creation efforts. When it was formed, JobsOhio replaced the state's Department of Development.
The story states:
“Scott Ziance, an economic-development lawyer for Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease who has worked on development deals with the administrations of Voinovich, Taft and Strickland, said JobsOhio is better, but it “is hard to put a metric to” why.
‘The high-level folks at the state have been almost universally very good, very responsive,’ Ziance said, comparing JobsOhio with the old Department of Development.
‘In the past there were mid-level folks, and this was under multiple administrations, who would just not return phone calls in a timely manner. High-level folks always return phone calls, but they’re busy, so you don’t want to call them on a daily basis.’
‘At JobsOhio, I always get my calls returned, and those people are working more than 40 hours, from top to bottom.’"
