Ohio Governor

Tell John Kasich "Stop Breaking The Law!"

    1. Petition by

      ProgressOhio

Ohio Governor John Kasich is breaking the law.  On January 7th, Kasich appointed Mark Kvamme, a California resident, to dismantle the Ohio Department of Development and make way for JobsOhio.

The only problem?  Ohio's Constitution and Ohio Law doesn't allow out-of-state residents to be the Director of a State Agency. 

We already know Gov. Kasich thinks that law enforcement officers are "idiots" and don't deserve any employment rights, but now he is openly flaunting Ohio law.  In fact, the non-partisan Legislative Services Commission ruled on February 18th that Kvamme cannot legally be a State Director and yet Gov. Kasich refuses to take action.

Tell Gov. Kasich he is not above the law and he must remove Mark Kvamme from his illegal appointment.

      As we have seen in Wisconsin, and now with your administration, it would seem that the GOP has no qualms about breaking the law in order to get its way.

      There are hard-working, dedicated HERO's out there working tirelessly to make our state a better place to live. Teachers nurturing our future generation, firefighters risking their lives to save strangers, police officers doing the same to protect us against criminals, social workers rescuing children from abusive homes, road crews clearing the way for us to make it to our own jobs, and Many Many others whose worth you are seriously underestimating. WHY DON'T YOU DO YOUR JOB! Reform the mountain of programs that have gone so terribly unmonitored and driven the deficit to it's unmanageable state. The quick fix is, once again, to take from the Middle Class. Clean your own house! Leave the working class alone so they have the means to take care of theirs.
