Kasich: Job creation crosses party linesWritten by Kristen Criswell | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Ohio Gubernatorial candidate John Kasich told supporters outside the Lucas County Republican Party headquarters on July 21 that the state needs to work as a team to create jobs.
Kasich said creating jobs crosses party lines and that the entire state needs to work together to create business.
“We have to get the rest of the state to say that’s Toledo’s deal that’s the northwest part of Ohio’s deal and we’re going to support them. Then we’re going support the other parts of the state,” he said. “If you don’t hang together you’re going hang separately. And if you hang together you can rebuild it.”
Kasich said his focus is creating an environment that retains and attracts businesses to Ohio. Taxes should be lowered, better regulations should be put in place so government doesn’t get in the way of small business and universities need to work with businesses to share innovation and ideas, Kasich said.
“We have to stop thinking about Ohio as us verses them and we got to think about Ohio as how together we can get this economy straighten out. This is not a partisan issue. Creating a job doesn’t belong to one particular party,” he said.
