From what I can tell Mathew Briney seems like a nice enough guy.

Kind of nerdy. Recently married. A little chubby. Losing his hair from the front on back. Originally from New Jersey but went to school in Virginia. Overall… doesn’t seem like a horrible person.

Kind of reminds me a little of myself.

However, unlike me, Matt is not from Ohio. Not sure he’s ever been here, actually. And yet the website for John Kasich, Republican candidate for Ohio Governor, is being completely managed by Briney and his company emotive.

It strikes me as kind of strange – nay, hypocritical – that Kasich’s primary campaign message revolves around bringing jobs back to Ohio and yet he’s spending his cash to hire kids from Virginia to run his campaign website.

Welcome to Ohio, Matty. Strap yourself in. It’s going to be a fun ride.
