Kasich appoints Trumbull County man to Ohio Lottery Commission board

Published: Mon, August 8, 2011 @ 1:15 p.m.

WARREN — Former longtime state Rep. Michael G. Verich, who spent 12 years on the State Employment Relations Board, has a new state job.

Gov. John Kasich, a Republican, appointed Verich, a Democrat from Warren, on Friday to a three-year appointment on the Ohio Lottery Commission board. Verich’s terms expires Aug. 1, 2014.

The annual salary of $5,000, plus expenses, to serve on the lottery commission is a far cry from the $80,000 a year Verich was making on SERB.

But Verich, with 28 years in state government, said he retired from full-time state government work on Nov. 30, 2010, when his second six-year term on SERB ended. Verich is the first Trumbull County resident appointed to a state board or commission by Kasich.

First, let me say that they should let the underworld handle gambling, they did a much better job policing their gambling activities. It ran a much more efficient operation. Now, for kasich and the guy from warren. He offers an olive bnranch and goes across party lines to hire somebody and he is an idiot. It is ok for the messiah to hire your mayor as car czar and he has no more qualifications for that job than I do. Where is the outrage over that poliitcal opponement?

Kasich spinning round and round. Multiple personality at best !

**Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation Board : Bill Johnson (republican) @ $60,000 a year to attend.

**Ohio Lottery Commission Board (democrat) Michael Verich @ $5,000 a year to attend.

Who's next appointment and where and what $ ?

Duck, duck, duck, goose! Run!

First off, give Verich a break! This man has brought more money back in State Funding for Trumbull County, and Mahoning Valley then anyone else period!!! Michael Verich has helped Warren City Schools tremendously, not to exclude the new wing he funded for the Champion School District. He brought the prison to Trumbull County, and the new Technology Building at the Kent Trumbull Campus.

He has personally helped thousands of people, myself included, and had a stellar career as a State Representative, and as a member of SERB. He is an Attorney, and has a Masters from Harvard University.

I honestly think he has earned his $5,000 salary from the Lottery Commission. Kudos to the Governor!
