DAYTON, OHIO: Officials in the Dayton area plan a job fair catering to military veterans — including those who have felony convictions.

The event on Wednesday in Dayton is being sponsored jointly by the Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Re-entry and the Dayton-Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Mike Ward, former coordinator of the county re-entry program and founder of a program that helps people addicted to opiates, tells the Dayton Daily News that local employers are looking for qualified workers, even those with criminal convictions.

Officials say convincing some employers to be open to those with felony convictions can be a struggle, but giving ex-cons a chance to be productive will ultimately strengthen public safety.

Ward tells veterans who have served time not to make excuses and don’t give up.
