All three Hamilton County Commissioners are optimistic about Governor John Kasich's proposed state budget.
Republicans Chris Monzel and Greg Hartmann call the plan bold and filled with a lot of changes that could affect county government. Hartmann adds the proposed budget has the potential to be revolutionary.
Democrat Todd Portune agrees. He especially likes the plans for Medicaid.
Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, like many seasoned election veterans, likes to help the young aspiring politicians who, in years past, helped him get where he wanted to go.
That’s what Strickland was doing in Cincinnati Friday, at the Southern Baptist Church and elsewhere, where he joined Greg Landsman, a fellow Democrat, as Landsman officially launched his run for a seat on Cincinnati City Council.
