Looks like that "evil" John Kasich is trying to bring some jobs to Ohio, good paying, high quality jobs.

Can't imagine that lower taxes and less regulation have anything to do with Ohio being on the Sears peoples list for possible new locations. Can't hurt that all the Wexner Corporations are in Ohio also.

They just might have to give tax abatement on the buildings to get those jobs, but then many on this site thing that is wrong.

Speaking of jobs, GM is announcing in Toledo a 260M investment and the hiring of up to 400 more blue collar union jobs today. The state is givnig them some financial assistance and job training funds to get the investment in Ohio. One of the first calls that the governor made was to the Big Three to let them know Ohio wanted their business and was going to do things differently.

Looking forward to all the Kasich critics complaints today.

Go John Go.

Well not to be wet blanket, but Sears/Kmart have been losing market share for years. Not sure their future is that bright 5 or 10 years from now.

Now lure Walmart or Target.........
