Cuyahoga executive: Kasich hostile, abrasive, devastating


Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, a potential 2014 Democratic gubernatorial candidate, criticized Republican Gov. John Kasich for being “hostile” and “absolutely devastating” to local governments.

“His overall leadership style has been abrasive, and I think that’s reflective in his poll numbers, which are pretty lousy,” FitzGerald told The Vindicator when asked about Kasich. “But that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy, because being an incumbent governor is a big plus. It is a challenge. That’s why if I’m going to do it, I have to get a fairly early start.”
