Kasich: Automakers blast business climate in Ohio

Published: Thu, January 13, 2011 @ 7:02 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Gov. John Kasich called his meetings with the Detroit Three automakers this week “very sobering” and “in some ways very disturbing,” with two of the three blunt in their assessment of Ohio’s business climate.

“I heard words like ‘not competitive,’” Kasich said today. “I heard words like ‘not cooperative.’ I heard words like ‘created a bad attitude and a bad impression.’”

He added, “We are not viewed in that community as the most forward-looking state.”

Kasich and a delegation that included Ohio State University President Gordon Gee attended the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Wednesday and met with representatives of General Motors, Chrysler and Ford.

I am absolutely thrilled that I voted for this man. First Republican Governor I have ever voted for and I am seeing that it was a wise choice.

Way to go Governor, time for real change!

Teresa, great vote! Although I am a Republican, I will admit the GOP screwed this state over under the Quack Bob Taft.

Kasich is poised to do huge things for us!

The more you untie the hands of businesses like auto with lower taxes ad less government regulation in Ohio, the more jobs you will create. I am all for that!

John Kasich has been outstanding so far as governor getting off on the RIGHT foot.
