Whatever you do, don't let Ted Strickland promote your business venture.

Early in his term, Ohio Governor Strickland announced a deal with Russian steel company MMF to much "fanfare".

They never ended up investing anything and recently pulled out of the deal completely.

Last year, Strickland jumped up and down with glee when taxpayer dollars were used to provide subsidies for 40 jobs with the folks that make Purell.

And now that same company is washing its hands clean of 150 people.

With Ohio's tax and regulation environment, starting a business in Ohio is scary enough. Don't take any chances and invite Ted to your ribbon cutting.
