    120,000 jobs don’t mean much when your childern can’t find one. my son would love to have one and he still believes that OHIO (home of the buckeyes) is the greatest place in the country or world for that matter to live and raise a family.
    As for me, i am retired and spend most of my time enjoying grandkids and helping the kids. i like my family love the state of ohio and the people here.
    I think you are beyond any doubt the most quailified to lead us back to prosperity and let the young people like our childern see just how great a place ohio really is without all the federal intervention. i have just watched your speech for the 4th time and it gets better every time. i honestly believe you are the without doubt the best person to serve as governor and get us back on track again. my family and i have all the confidence in the world that we will prevail and get our people back to work. thank you for serving us. oh and please do it again.

      tommy, you never said the age of your son or what his job skills are. Is he willing to do whatever he needs to do for a paycheck? I know for a fact there are jobs here in Ohio to be had, maybe not what is preferred. My Nephew 38 years old fell onto hard times. He was a Car Salesman, a pretty good one. Tough times caused the freshmen to be cut loose. He landed a job as a cook at the local Bob Evans, he has another job he works on weekends washing dishes. He hates it, but it supports his family, and the pay isn’t that bad.
      Just sharing a our story. Good Luck Dan

    Dear Governor Kasich
    I like what I hear comming from your administration these days. Your plan sounds as if it will be a good thing for the great State of Ohio.
    I would like to see a lot more manufacturing jobs in Ohio. As a delivery driver, I’ve seen many closed facilities with broken out windows and overgrown parking lots where hundreds of people had once work and raised their families from that income. What ever happened to “on the job training”? Why must everybody go to college in order to get work? I can see that for the high level jobs with six figure incomes. Soon we will need a college education just to flip burgers.
    With on the job training, workers could get their foot in the door, get training at the spot they will be working, not reading about it in a book and then try to apply it to the actual real world situation. My hope, for those behind me, would be to see this type of training take fruition. We have lost, perhaps thousands of jobs here in Ohio, in the manufacturing sector and have lost the people with the knowledge to do this type of work. It is one way the people can grow with the company that hired them and feel a sense of loyalty.

    Just my opinion!

    Sincerly, Wayne

    Dear Governor,

    I support your agenda and stand by you and those that stand with you. Keep it up and my God bless you, your family and may God bless Ohio. We also need to need you to make a public statement that you stand with and for the U.S. Constitution and the 2nd Amendment and you will not enforce any law that is illegal and against the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights

    Why are you increasing medicaid? I guess I ask this because my husband is in the memory unit at an assisted living. As I look around at patients there I see people who are on medicaid and I am paying over $4,000.00 a month for his care (which exceeds our monthly income) plus all the personal items necessary for his care. As I look back he worked hard and all the overtime that was available. I guess I question why we tried to save during our productive years only to have to give it to an assisted living while others didn’t try to save and are now getting the same care for free.

    I might add that I voted for you.

    I am a Republican and am facing losing my job. You talk about hope and opportunity and I am not feeling much of that. I realize that there must be cuts, but our program is very worthwhile and has been impacted drastically. I provide Early Intervention services in the home to families of children birth to three years with disabilities. Research has established that these services impact the future of these children in a positive manner. You speak about providing quality education to our children in Ohio to ensure they don’t “fall behind” and obtain “skills they need to succeed”. This education begins at infancy for the most vulnerable at risk and disabled population. I have not heard about anything in your budget for these children. Preparing parents and these children for preschool and/or providing this service with the outcome of not needing any future services is the very beginning of providing quality education for ALL children in Ohio, including those with disabilites. I am a teacher but work 12 months a year, a 7-12 hour day and accommodate working families in the evenings. I don’t think folks know we exist and the work we are doing to support families early on. What about us? How does this fit in to your budget?

    . Govenor Kasich,
    Thank you for serving and working for the great state of Ohio. I believe cutting taxes and especially making things easier on the small business person is a plus. We need those tax reductions but however, we don’t know just what affect it is going to have on some small business because they are going to have to charge tax on many small things like beauty shops, barber shops etc. We believe in the long run we will move forward. Thank you and keep trying to help the small business because they are what makes this country what it is God Bless Ohio-America and you.
    Thank you.
    Jack and Irene A.
