Gov. Kasich talks casinos, jobs and golf

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

Monday, Gov. John Kasich announced 60 new jobs at Thyssen-Krupp Bilstein, and more than 100 jobs being saved because the state government helped the company stay in Butler County rather than move to Mexico.

Since the beginning of 2011, Butler County has lost 1,300 jobs, the most in the Southwest Ohio Region. FOX19 asked Gov. Kasich what his plan is to save jobs.

"It's to do this, there has been jobs lost here but unemployment has also been down," said Kasich. "I however ask the regional people to tell me a game plan and tell me the companies they think we can attract. Tell me the things that can happen to help us to expand operations in the state of Ohio."

Also on the minds of Ohioans is how the possible building of casinos will impact the region.

Hundreds of non-profits hold bingo events, and other fundraising events. Many have concerns that casinos will take away from their primary funding source.

"I really don't have an answer for you on that today. And I think at the end of the day I think the casino operators they're going to open up and people are going to get a benefit from all this in several different ways and it's good," said Kasich.

A lot has been made about Gov. Kasich's golf outing on Saturday with President Obama, Vice President Biden and Speaker John Boehner.

FOX19 asked how Kasich plans to fight for the people of Ohio at Saturday's golf outing.

"I really don't plan to make this a political event that is not what this is," said Kasich. "One thing I've learned over time is when you develop personal relationships that's what leads to treating people like humans rather than a political adversary."
