Once again, Governor John Kasich has released a campaign video that is purely personal in nature and devoid of any details about his track record as Ohio’s Governor.  Kasich’s latest ad, Purpose, is intended to humanize the Governor and remind us that he’s just a humble, gentle man.

Apparently the Governor doesn’t want to run on his record — and for good reason.  Throughout his term, the Governor has enacted numerous changes at the expense of public education in Ohio.  Not only has he enacted many reforms that have not been adequately funded (if funded at all), he has subsequently “balanced” the state budget by taking money away from local communities.  Stealing money from local communities while requiring that public schools enact new reforms has placed a double-hit on local taxpayers who are having to foot the bill, and Ohio’s children are the victims.

John Kasich is wrong for Ohio.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: It’s not personal, Governor, it’s business.

    Ohio has become anti-education, anti-teacher under the Republicans leadership.

    Ed should be pointing out Kasich’s lack of goodness for Ohio.

    Yep we WILL NOT FORGET! School will just be getting in on full steam by then and teachers will remember all he has done that is so wonderful with his budget rules that circumvented SB5, so he could still unleash his hatred of teachers and the teaching profession so his “good” friends contributors can make money of off us with their failing charter schools and to continue to try to privatize schools and break all unions. And then there are the laws about abortion that he has let pass through.

    The three stooges, Kasich, Walker (Wisconsin) and Scott (Florida) are now reaping what they’ve sewn. Their disdain for the rest of us has them trying to reinvent themselves for re-election. But we’re not buying it. I wouldn’t be surprised if a second We Are Ohio rally would be bigger than the first.
