Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel spent time in Marietta Monday at Pioneer Pipe.
Mandel toured the facility, discussing workforce development and business policy initiatives.
He says it's important that we find jobs for Ohioans in Ohio instead of seeing Texas or Colorado license plates.
Mandel says he is also impressed with what programs Pioneer Pipe has for their employees and high school students.
Mandel says he believes the Marietta area can lead the economic comeback for the state of Ohio and bring in thousands of new jobs.
