In the long run it is not cheaper it is "Redistribution" of the tax money spent to house inmates.Currently in Ohio,Private prison companies claim they can house inmate cheaper,they compare ,apples TO oranges. Private prisons can only house,Non violent offenders,with no chronic medical conditions or reqiure no daily medication,no history of mental illness or substance abuse and, that are sentenced less than 24 months.Basically check kiters and dead beat dads.Most of which should have been given probation and made to make restitution.It wont be cheaper its all smoke and mirrors.

The residents of Ohio are getting what they voted for. They voted for Kasich who promised that Ohio will be open for business. That's exactly what we are getting. A director of the state prison system with ties to the private corrections industry. A head of the EPA who has no problem with opening state lands for oil and gas drilling. Yes, Ohio IS open for business!
So is the local corner hooker.

Won't having Gary Mohr as the new Director of DR&C be a confict of interest as he has connections with the Community Corrections Organization?

I hope Mr. Kasich and Mr. Moore can both keep from having conflict of interests. It will be interesting to see who Mr. Mohr names as his top officials; at the Central Office but also in all of DR&C.

Wonder if he will hire his significant other; a current warden within the agency; just remember Ohioans who voted Mr. Kasich he will be under public; not private scruitiny starting next Monday
