More than 300 Ohio jobs will be lost in the consolidation of a wireless voice and data business that received a state tax credit recommended by Ohio's privatized nonprofit job creation board.
The JobsOhio board created by Gov. John Kasich's (KAY'-sik's) administration to lead Ohio's economic development efforts recommended the $4.5 million tax credit to keep Verizon in the state.
Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols says the tax credit did save other Verizon jobs in Ohio.
Verizon spokeswoman Lauren Merritt says the company is trying to consolidate its operations and make better use of its real estate.
