Governor-elect paying a visit to the Tri-State

John Kasich John Kasich

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Ohio's Governor-elect, John Kasich, will be in Cincinnati Wednesday.

Kasich will visit Cincinnati State Technical and Community College and visit with college administrators and local business leaders whose companies benefit from the College's programs and graduates. He will also talk about the local economy.

Over on the University of Cincinnati campus, the student government has collected about 2,000 signatures urging Kasich to reconsider funding cuts for higher education. They will collect signatures the rest of the month and send the petition after the new year.

Kasich's first budget isn't due until March, but there are reports that public universities could lose as much as 20 percent in funding.

Kasich defeated current Governor Ted Strickland in the November election.
