But the new political pecking order with a Republican governor and secretary of state now will clear the way for his return to the county payroll. It's been no secret that it has been one of his goals ever since he was summarily dumped. And with the planets of Gov. Kasich and Secretary of State Jon Husted lined up in his universe, folks who keep an eye on such movements say the deal will be closed soon when one of the board's two Republicans - Brian Daley and Ray Weber, both Arshinkoff loyalists - "voluntarily" resigns.
Always thinking ahead, Arshinkoff handed Kasich and Husted $150,00 each from the county treasury for their recent campaigns.
