State treasurer meets with Clermont County leaders

Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel speaks during a business roundtable held at Lykins Oil in Milford with local business and community leaders.
Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel joined Clermont County area small businesses and community leaders on Tuesday to provide an update on the Ohio Treasurer’s office and to hear their thoughts on job creation and economic development in Ohio.

“Traveling the state and meeting with local business leaders allows me to take what I’ve learned and share with policy makers in Columbus,” Treasurer Mandel said. “These local small business leaders in Clermont County are important to the success of Ohio’s economy and it is important that their voice is heard.”

The business roundtable was held at Lykins Oil in Milford and discussions ranged from topics like creating an environment that fosters job growth to workforce development ideas.

In addition to talks on job creation, Treasurer Mandel updated the attendees on his office’s STAR Plus program, which is a local government investment option. Eight local government subdivisions within Clermont County have chosen to deposit more than $36 million into the program.

Lykins Oil is a family owned and operated business and was founded in 1948. They serve customers in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, and also throughout the Midwest and the Southeast United States.
