Kasich talks jobs budget in Mason

MASON, OH (FOX19) -

Ohio Governor John Kasich visited Mason on Monday to talk about the jobs budget.

Kasich, along with Senator Shannon Jones and other local elected officials and business leaders, met with executives and employees at Rhinestahl Corporation before an address to the public.

"Guess what? We're going to other states. We're stealing their jobs instead of being on the losing end of what's been happening in Ohio for the last 10 years," Kasich said to a cheering crowd gathered in the Rhinestahl warehouse. "We're going to compete and we're going to win."

While his message focused mainly on jobs, Kasich also touched on controversial budget issues like funding for nursing homes.

"The nursing homes should not be the default option," he said. "What we are promoting is more home care and more community settings."

Performance-based pay in Ohio school systems also make the address.

"If a teacher is doing a great job I want to pay them $100,000 dollars and we're inviting every teacher in Ohio to participate in establishing the criteria for judging teacher performance," Kasich said.

Throughout the event, Kasich stood strongly by each of his own budget decisions, encouraging other local politicians to do the same.

"Isn't that what we're lacking?" Kasich questioned. "People that are not willing at times to make that hard decisions that need to be made because they want somebody cheering them? Make the decisions. Belly up to the bar."

On its website, Rhinestahl specializes in tooling, lifting fixtures, transportation equipment and stands, inspection and test equipment as well as engine handling devices.
