Columbus—Janetta King, President of Innovation Ohio, a progressive public policy think tank headquartered in Columbus, today offered some thoughts on Gov. John Kasich’s upcoming “State of the State” speech tomorrow.
“Like all Ohioans, we at Innovation Ohio wish the Governor well in his first State of the State speech. We hope he and his Administration succeed. After all, if our Governor succeeds, our state succeeds –and we are all Ohioans before we are anything else.
“Traditionally, State of the State speeches are thematic and give the Governor an opportunity to lay out both his vision for the future and the direction in which he intends to take the state in his budget and policy proposals yet to come.
“With due respect, here are a few things we hope Gov. Kasich’s speech and budget will include –and some we hope he will avoid.”
