Black Ohio lawmakers urge Kasich to hire minorities



Published: Thu, January 27, 2011 @ 2:10 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Black state lawmakers are demanding Ohio Gov. John Kasich appoint minorities to his cabinet — even if it means getting rid of some of his current picks.

The members appointed to Kasich’s cabinet so far are all white.

Kasich has said he’s assembling a strong cabinet without regard for race, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation.

The Ohio Legislative Black Caucus says the GOP-led Senate should refuse to confirm his cabinet members until Kasich picks minority candidates for the jobs.

The group has set up an e-mail address for minority candidates to send in resumes for state jobs. They say they’ve also requested a meeting with the governor.

Kasich has previously met with some of the caucus’ members. A message seeking comment was left with his spokesman.
