Kasich speech now planned for the airport

Published: Wed, February 23, 2011 @ 7:55 p.m.

Gov. John Kasich moved Thursday’s speech to the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber to save him travel time and help those attending the event avoid protesters, his spokesman said.

“If there are protesters or disruptions, it’s easier for [guests] to get in and out” of the new location, said Rob Nichols, Kasich’s spokesman.

The luncheon is at a hangar at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport in Vienna rather than a restaurant in Howland.

Local union members, their supporters still plan to protest across the street from the entrance to the airport on Youngstown-Kingsville Road, said Andy Richards, spokesman for the Ohio AFL-CIO.

The protesters object to a Republican bill, supported by Kasich, also a Republican, to eliminate collective bargaining for state employees, and his “anti-worker tone,” he said.

Hey angrytaxpayer, why aren't you mad at the governor for making us spend $2 million to make his house safe cause he don't want to upset his family and live in the governors mansion. Now we get to maintain two houses. Why aren't you made for him giving HIS aides a $30,000 a year raise, your as phony as those you support.

@ cbog76 I'm sure the POLICE would make the arrest after susupect and probable cause were established OR a report was submitted to the county prosector for filing of charges... oh yeah they're also public sector employees they would have done their job none the less.... just hearsay.cbog76 .. just as Ohio Highway Patrol were ordered to not allow state citizens in to the state house yesterday( until negotiated for 500 more people or face a lawsuit ) they were just doing their job as R. hagan stated

Once again you leftists, you were WARNED last year that changes to collective bargaining were coming. You guys FAILED to get the vote out on Election Day and are paying the price now.

Kasich is going to do wonders for Ohio!

Apparently government employees in Ohio do have a good retirement plan. Apparently, that is what really upsets many people. However, why does the Social Security System not go to the Ohio plan and ask them why their plan is soooooooooo great. Perhaps, the Social Security System should be more like the OPERS and STRS. Also, I believe that government employees in Ohio need to pay over 10% of their salary into the plan. Social Security should require workers to pay a least 10% of their pay into Social Security not the 6.66% now paid. However the best thing would be for SS to go towards Ohio's pension plans. PHISHIE

People you see where the Pre-Valing wage went ? It's gone until we put it back on in four years ! Watch those bridges,schools,and waste water plants. One thing I haven't heard is the ELECTED OFFCIALS taken a cut ! Now why is that ? Recall Kasich ! Recall Kasich, and Recall Kasich ! That'll be faster than 3 years and 10 months !!!!!!
