COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Ethics Commission has found that a deal struck with Marathon Petroleum Corp. last year posed a potential conflict of interest for two directors of the state’s privatized job-creation board, JobsOhio.
The economic-development entity spearheaded by Republican Gov. John Kasich said Wednesday that Marathon CEO Gary Heminger and Steven A. Davis, who served simultaneously on JobsOhio’s and Marathon’s boards when the deal was struck, successfully averted actual conflict by stepping aside from decision-making.
