    Ah, more potential job losses for Ohio! Wow I don’t get it. Kasich wants to create jobs for Ohioians?!?! Not too sure where these jobs are going to come from, when he has to kill some first…

    Kasich is in an idealogue – he has a scorch and burn mentality. He doesn’t like the 3C because of the money, but because it might benefit the union. He is an arogant SOB from Westerville, from a poor family, he has nothing other than crusts to offer Ohio. He is a mistake. The SOB never managed more than 3 folks and he will manage this great state into the ground. The one thing that might distinguish OHIO from Easter Island is the 3C rail – Kasich is too ignorant, short sighted and plain stupid. $400M will go to NY because of his principles. This guy is a JERK! The Republicans have no ideas – perhaps all these poor ignorant, blue color, church goers can eat their bibles. The stupidity in this STATE is AMAZING!!!They have elected an absolute JERK. Ohio was isolated before we are even more isolated now this AS…XXXX and he thinks he has a mandate! 3C Rail is good for Ohio and will connect us with the the rest of the USA HE JUST DOESN’T GET IT! LIKE PRESIDENT OBAMA ONLY WORSE AND MORE OUT OF TOUCH! 25,000 jobs in Ohio could be created because of the 3C effort – so he will let the money go to CA, FL and NY because of his principles and promises to the Circleville Chamber of Commerce and farmers who got him elected. A GUY IS AN AS HXXXXX. This state deserves what it gets!

    Interesting! I wonder how many jobs this will create? Yes this news might be a little premature due to the nature of funding, but no reports from the dispatch or TV channels?!?! I’m surprised.

    Gahanna council axes plan for rail-car plant
    Friday November 4, 2011 5:30 AM

    A proposal to build a railcar manufacturing plant in Gahanna was stopped in its tracks when the City Council rejected a resolution to apply for a $12 million federal grant. The project also required a $3 million match that was to be covered by USRailcar Co. or private financing.
