Even if you didn’t follow the SB5/Issue 2 debate as intensely as we did here at Plunderbund, just turning on your TV or visiting a website hosting Google ads in the past 3 months would likely have exposed you to Building a Better Ohio’s anti-union message, along with their Ohio-shape-inside-the-O logo.

Today Kasich announced his design for Ohio’s license plate and it has some surprising similarities to the Better Ohio logo, specifically the shape of the state inside the letter O.

To be fair, the plate design, chosen by Kasich but created by students at Columbus College of Art & Design, isn’t bad looking, but it’s hard to overlook the similarities to the Better Ohio logo.

While it does seem possible that Kasich specifically chose this design as one last dig against Ohio’s public employees and the unions that supported them in the fight against SB5/Issue 2, it seems just as likely that the logo design will remind SB5 supporters and contributors, as they drive around Ohio staring at the license plates on the cars in front of them, of their massive defeat at the polls a few weeks back.
