In The Region:

The State senator who would like to be Ohio’s next Secretary of State says she thinks that office could do more to help new businesses.

Democrat Nina Turner wants to create a one-stop shop on the Secretary of State’s website where small businesses can get information from other agencies that might help them with anything from seed money to vendors to hiring new employees.

“The Secretary of State’s office has a real opportunity because we are the portal, the first line of defense when it comes to a business registering in the state. How about we take that service to the next level?” Democrat Nina Turner says.

A spokeswoman for Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted says he was the first to launch online business filing, which means you can file to do business in Ohio 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Maggie Ostrowski says, since its launch, nearly 21,000 filings have been submitted online.
