Kasich: I won't privatize Lake Erie, folks
IT WAS GOOD to see Gov. Kasich veto the Lake Erie water drainage bill passed by both Republican chambers of the Ohio legislature. Given his past track record, one would have expected him to include on his wish list the privatizing of Lake Erie. But he finally accepted the strong objections of two previous GOP governors, George Voinovich and Robert Taft, as well as many others, to rebuff the initiative by the legislative cornstock brigade and its melange of strict party enablers - including Akron 's Republican senator, Frank LaRose, a co-sponsor of the bill - who now dominate the agenda of lawmakers.
