Yep, John Kasich said he’ll use out-of-state workers to control Ohio’s economic development.  Again, Mary Taylor, a State Senator, and the House Minority Leader say nothing.  (HT: OhioCapitolBlog)

John Kasich’s written plan claims that he’ll only rely on Ohio business leaders.  But are you going to believe what he says on paper over what he says on video?

John Kasich will not only privatize Ohio’s statewide economic development efforts.  He’s already planning on outsourcing it, too.

    Funny that John “Chairman of the Board” Kasich did not post this stellar plan on his own website's blog. I guess he did not want his own supporters to turn on him again like they did with his tepid first statewide ad. I guess he might actually have learned something!

    It's on the Blog section, but you have to scroll down to find it. It's also the first slide on the webpage. But no comments on it so far.

  • I understand the political motivation of this blog, which is fine, but I have to say that outsourcing certain aspects of economic development isn't such a bad thing. If local folks can't be objective, let an expert from somewhere else speak truth to power. And we're seeing a lot of “head in the sand” economic development approaches, pretending that we're just going to get back to normal someday. We don't think so.

    I've been known to “joke” that the only way to reverse cleveland's fortunes would be to disperse its current population thinly across the country and allow all fresh blood to move in. I suppose this would also work on a statewide basis.

    Okay, those are fine defenses. But even you have to make it with several caveats. What evidence do you have that any of those caveats actually exists?
