PERRYSBURG, OH (WTOL) - Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, Betty Sutton, visited northwest Ohio on Friday to discuss her campaign's "Better Skills, Better Jobs" initiative.

Sutton was at Owens Community College in Perrysburg speaking with faculty members and college leadership.

She said her goal, along with running-mate Richard Cordray,  is to make sure all Ohioans have the skills they need to enter the workforce.

Sutton said she and Cordray want to embrace the many different paths that can lead to jobs in Ohio.

"Whether it's a community college that they may choose to go to to get the skills they need for a good job, a vocational education program, we need to support those as well; apprenticeship programs, technical schools," she said.

Sutton added that if she and Cordray are elected, their administration will shift the Office of Workforce Transformation's priorities from employers to employees.
