BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Governor John Kasich stopped by Bowling Green State University to talk about his plans for the rest of the year.
Kasich spoke to Bowling Green city officials about his plans, saying jobs are his number one priority.
Kasich told his audience during a question and answer forum that Ohio was ranked 44th as the most business-friendly in the nation when he assumed office. Today, Ohio is 22nd in the country. Kasich attribute the gain to attracting more business.
In addition, this fiscal year, the state will see a $2 billion surplus.
Bowling Green Mayor Dick Edwards says even more growth could occur if local governments don't see more funding cuts.
"Local government plays a critical role in economic expansion," Edwards said. "Those local government funds are really meaningful and very valuable."
Kasich answered the mayor's concerns by saying local governments receive 85 percent of money raised in Columbus.
Edwards says a close partnership between state and local officials is key to a successful economic turnaround. The hope is that more meetings like Monday's will help Ohio move forward.
