Today, The Columbus Dispatch reminded voters who we need to support on November 2nd. From the editorial:
As Ohio copes with economic stagnation, unemployment of 10.1 percent and a looming $8 billion shortfall in the state budget, it needs a resolute leader in the governor’s office. Because leadership and executive ability have not been Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland’s strong suits, voters should choose his Republican challenger, John Kasich.
Kasich points to his nine terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, where he rose to be chairman of the powerful House Budget Committee, as proof that he has the experience to deal with tough budget issues. Just as important though, Ohio needs a leader who can inspire hope and not simply cope. The problem is not that the state lacks the talent and know-how to recoup from the recession, but that it is adrift and hobbled by uncertainty. A forceful figure is needed to start making decisions to end the uncertainty. Kasich has the personality, the drive and the backbone to do this.
