Ohio is coming back. But, in the words of Governor John Kasich, the state still needs some shaking up.
Kasich was the keynote speaker at the Wood County Republican Party's inaugural Lincoln Day dinner, held at the Stone Ridge Golf Club Thursday.
"My mother always said 'Johnny, you shake it up,'" said Kasich in his address to a packed house.
Speaking for over 30 minutes, the first-term governor noted that Ohio was in a sorry state when he took office, faced with an $8 billion deficit, and a loss of more than 350,000 jobs. However, he said since then the state has a balanced budget and a $1.4 billion surplus, in addition to a gain of 160,000 jobs.
However, he noted other initiatives to improve the state, including exposing children to career options earlier, working harder to combat human trafficking, and helping those with mental illness.
"We've accomplished a lot, but there's a lot more to do," he said.
