In a statement all too symbolic of his entire term as Governor, Ted Strickland recently came out against Issue 3.
Yes, I know it already won.
Ohio’s governor and members of the horse racing industry are concerned that voters’ recent approval of casinos in four cities will hurt the state’s already struggling racetracks, which employ about 12,000.
Ya know, Governor, this concern would have been more effectively shared with Ohioans before they supported it by less than 200,000 votes last week.
Instead, you’re late to the party and hiding from controversy.
Now here’s 3BP’s recommendation: worry less about racetracks, worry more about bringing jobs back to Ohio.
