Jump into Ann Fisher’s show today around 48 minutes in and you’ll hear this wonderful exchange between Mark Kvamme and Ann.
Ann asks Mark “What is it about the state of Ohio that sets it apart?”
Kvamme quickly responds that it’s Ohio’s central location and its excellent transportation system: “we have rivers, we have railroads.”
Ann’s reporter training kicks in and she asks the perfect follow up question:
“What about the idea that the governor turned down 400 million in federal grants for passenger rail in the state of ohio?” asks Ann
Uh… hmm… ehhhh…
“I think it’s probably best for you to ask the governor’s office about that” replies Kvamme.
The Governor’s private industry business expert, who two seconds earlier claimed one of Ohio’s most attractive features to businesses is its rail infrastructure, just refused to answer a question about Kasich’s decision to send $400 million in rail funding back to Kvamme’s home state of California.
