This article in the Dispatch got me fired up against Kasich all over again. I had really mellowed out in my dislike for him, but he really hasn't changed. It seems like he's bound and determined to undermine everything Strickland tried to put into place regardless of its merits.
NOTE: It may seem unfair to blame Kasich directly for this, but the Dispatch article makes a pretty clear case that this was a politically motivated decision by his appointees overruling their own staff's recommendation.
Back to waiting impatiently to vote against this guy.
