The Absent-Minded Governor

We all know the story of NCR by now.

The longtime company who employed thousands in the Dayton area for 125 years picked up and left for Georgia after Ohio became increasingly too costly to do business.

But the story doesn’t end there.

Bill Nuti, the NCR chief executive, had this to say in a recent article that appeared in the New York Times:

Mr. Nuti said that he attended a renewable energy conference in New York the month after that disastrous meeting, and during lunch sat next to Governor Strickland — who, he says, not only did not know who he was, despite his name tag, but never introduced himself.

Now, I don’t care what happened before this interaction, but for the Governor of Ohio to have so little interest in the affairs of major Ohio employers that he doesn’t even recognize Nuti’s name is astounding. This is a simple matter of Ted Strickland being detached from his duties.

Apathy is not a trait required of a Governor.
