Today, I see that Governor Elect Kasich not only wants forbid the 3C Rail project, but to cancel all studies currently ongoing into high-speed transportation AND endanger ANOTHER $400,000,000 in Education funds received already. He wants to scrap the RFP grant-proposed and federally-approved program for education reform in Ohio, meaning that the money will be rescinded because the grant-based contract was not followed.
That’s $800,000,000 of money he refuses to let Ohioans have. Our mass transit system(s) is almost nonexistent, businesses and college grads are leaving the state and middle income folks without automobiles are stuck in Ohio. The loss of $800 Million (yes, eight hundred million) also loses Ohio a load of jobs.
What will the new governor do to target and reduce the child sex trafficking in Toledo? Will he pull plans for that project and send back the money?
Ohioans voted for him. I wish they had not.
