PARTNERS IN MOVING OHIO FORWARD.
00:12:00HOW ABOUT THAT CABINET?
THANK YOU FOR COMING TODAY AND I
00:12:04LOVE YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING
AND MAKING OHIO A STRONGER AND
00:12:08BETTER PLACE.
THE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS AT THE
00:12:14WELLS ACADEMY ARE JUST
FANTASTIC.
00:12:16THEY ARE JUST THE BEST.
[APPLAUSE]
00:12:18BUT THEY ARE REFLECTIONS OF THE
PEOPLE OF STEUBENVILLE AND I
00:12:34HAVE TO TELL YOU NO ONE COULD
HAVE NEVER RECEIVED A BETTER
00:12:40RECEPTION THAN I DID COMING INTO
THIS GREAT TOWN.
00:12:44I LOVE THE PEOPLE OF
STEUBENVILLE.
00:12:46WE WILL BE BACK MANY TIMES AND
YOUR CHILDREN AT WELLS ACADEMY
00:12:55ARE A REFLECTION OF YOUR
EXCELLENCE AND I WANT TO THANK
00:12:58YOU FOR THE GENEROUS RECEPTION
YOU GAVE ME.
00:13:00I ALSO WANT TO GIVE A NICE
COMMENT ABOUT MY WIFE -- STAND
00:13:10UP AND TAKE A LATE WAVE.
[APPLAUSE]
00:13:13I REMEMBER THE CARTOON THAT
SAID KASICH WILL STILL NOT
00:13:26REVEAL HOW THE SNAG THAT HOT
WIFE.
00:13:29I HOPE WE ALL APPRECIATE OUR
SPOUSES.
00:13:31THEY NEVER GET THE GLORY.
THEY ARE THE ONES RAISING THE
00:13:35KIDS AND TAKING CARE OF THE HOME
FRONT.
00:13:37I THINK ABOUT BOB -- HE HAS FIVE
CHILDREN.
00:13:44THINK ABOUT HIS WIFE.
LET'S REMEMBER OUR SPOUSES
00:13:48BECAUSE WITHOUT THEM, WE CAN'T
DO ANY OF WHAT WE DO.
00:13:50[APPLAUSE]
AS THE GOVERNOR, I PROMISED I
00:13:57WAS GOING TO TRAVEL ALL OVER THE
PLACE AND I HOPE YOU REALIZE I
00:14:00HAVE KEPT MY WORD.
I HAVE VISITED MANY OF YOUR
00:14:04TOWN'S MANY TIMES AND IN CASE
YOU WONDER ABOUT MY TRAVEL
00:14:06SCHEDULE, YOU CAN READ ALL ABOUT
IT IN THE NEWSPAPERS ABOUT THE
00:14:10NUMBER OF TIMES I USE THE STATE
AIRPLANE AND YOU CAN NAIL THIS
00:14:14DOWN PRETTY WELL.
I'M GOING TO CONTINUE TO USE IT
00:14:18BECAUSE I'M GOING TO CONTINUE TO
TRAVEL AND COME TO WHERE YOU
00:14:21ARE.
ALL LOT OF PEOPLE ARE
00:14:23SPECULATING WHY WOULD HE COME TO
STEUBENVILLE?
00:14:28I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I
KNEW A YEAR AGO I WAS GOING TO
00:14:32BE IN COLUMBUS.
I WANTED TO GET OUT AND TRAVEL
00:14:35AND SEE THE FOLKS.
YOU WANT TO GET OUT AND TOUCH
00:14:39THEM.
WHY DID I COME HERE?
00:14:43IT'S NOT COMPLICATED.
I'M A COMMON-SENSE,
00:14:46STRAIGHTFORWARD GUY.
I CAME FOR TWO REASONS.
00:14:49ONE IS WELL ACADEMY.
THEY HAVE SET A STANDARD FOR THE
00:14:53ENTIRE REST OF THE STATE.
THEY ARE THE NUMBER ONE
00:14:57PERFORMING SCHOOL IN OHIO.
IF YOU WERE TO GUESS WHERE WITH
00:15:02A NUMBER ONE SCHOOL BE LOCATED,
YOU MAY NOT GET TO STEUBENVILLE,
00:15:05YET HERE IT IS.
LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT
00:15:09ABOUT WHAT THEY DO BECAUSE IT IS
SO IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THE
00:15:12CULTURE.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, THE TEACHERS
00:15:15AND ADMINISTRATORS HAVE ADOPTED
THE PRINCIPLE -- I HAVE SEEN IT
00:15:21AT FREDERICK DOUGLASS ACADEMY IN
THE MIDDLE OF HARLEM, I HAVE
00:15:24SEEN IT AT OTHER FINE CHARTER
SCHOOLS AROUND THE STATES AND
00:15:28OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
WHAT IT GETS DOWN TO, AND THE
00:15:33TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS AT
MINES, NOTHING STANDS IN THE WAY
00:15:36OF KIDS BEING GREAT.
NOT POVERTY, NOT BROKEN HOMES,
00:15:41THESE ARE OBSTACLES.
WE WANT OUR PARENTS TO BE
00:15:44INVOLVED, BUT THE TEACHERS HERE
HAVE A DEEP COMMITMENT TO THE
00:15:47CHILD'S FUTURE AND THEY WILL DO
EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO MOVE IT
00:15:53FORWARD.
ONE THING WE HAVE TO DO IS ASK
00:15:55ALL OF OUR PEOPLE IN PUBLIC
EDUCATION TO GIVE THESE CHILDREN
00:15:59A CHANCE TO REALIZE THEIR GOD-
GIVEN DESTINY AND THAT'S EXACTLY
00:16:02WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE AND IT'S
IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT 60% OF
00:16:05THE CHILDREN IN THIS SCHOOL ARE
ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED.
00:16:11THAT IS 15% ABOVE THE STATEWIDE
AVERAGE, YET THEY ARE NUMBER
00:16:16ONE.
THEIR NUMBER ONE BECAUSE OF THE
00:16:18COMMITMENT.
THEY DON'T SPEND A LOT OF MONEY
00:16:20ON ADMINISTRATORS, OVERHEAD AND
BUILDINGS.
00:16:24THIS BUILDING, THEY SHARE WITH A
HIGH-SCHOOL.
00:16:27YOU MAY HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE
HIGH SCHOOL HERE.
00:16:29THE HOME OF THE FOOTBALL
POWERHOUSE, THE BIG RED.
00:16:32EVER HEARD OF THEM?
[APPLAUSE]
00:16:34WELLS SPENDS ITS MONEY WHERE IT
NEEDS TO GO AND IT IS SOMETHING
00:16:44WE CAN LEARN FROM.
THEY DIRECT ITS MONEY TO THE
00:16:47CLASSROOMS.
THE TEACHERS WORK TOGETHER LIKE
00:16:50DOCTORS AND AN OPERATING ROOM.
THEY USE DATA TO LOOK AT THESE
00:16:55TROUBLESOME PROBLEMS THAT
CHILDREN HAVE AND, AS A GROUP,
00:16:58THEY FIX IT.
IT IS IT DATA DRIVEN.
00:17:01THEY KNOW WHAT WORKS.
THEY APPLY IT AND STICK TO IT
00:17:05AND ARE ABLE TO LIFT THESE KIDS.
THE ADMINISTRATORS ARE RIGHT
00:17:08THERE WITH THE TEACHERS.
I ALWAYS THOUGHT ADMINISTRATORS
00:17:12NEED TO TEACH IN THE CLASSROOM
AND THERE THEY ARE.
00:17:15I GOT TO SPEND TIME WITH THE
SUPERINTENDENT AND PRINCIPAL AND
00:17:21A FIGHT TO GIVE THE TEACHERS THE
RESOURCES THEY NEED TO GET THE
00:17:24JOB DONE.
AT THE END OF THE DAY, THE
00:17:27STUDENTS ARE DOING SO WELL THAT
IT CREATES SUCCESS.
00:17:29WHEN YOU HAVE SUCCESS, IT BUILDS
MOMENTUM FOR MORE SUCCESS.
00:17:35THEY HAVE SUCCESSFULLY
IMPLEMENTED AN EARLY CHILDHOOD
00:17:40EDUCATION PROGRAM.
IT'S SOMETHING MY WIFE HAS
00:17:42BELIEVED IN.
OHIO JUST RECEIVED A $70 MILLION
00:17:50GRANT.
WE WERE THE FIFTH BEST IN THE
00:17:53COUNTRY.
WE WERE GOING TO USE THAT MONEY
00:17:56AND APPLY IT TO EDUCATION,
MAKING IT WORK AND MAKING A
00:17:59BETTER ACROSS THE STATE OF OHIO.
IT IS FANTASTIC NEWS.
00:18:02[APPLAUSE]
SECOND, I CAME TO STEUBENVILLE
00:18:12BECAUSE IT IS WHERE I GREW UP.
I DIDN'T GROW UP IN
00:18:17STEUBENVILLE, BUT WHEN YOU COME
FROM AN ETHNIC TOWN ALONG THE
00:18:20RIVER, YOU ARE ALL FAMILY.
YOU MAY NOT KNOW EACH OTHER AND
00:18:24YOU MAY NOT BE RELATED, BUT YOU
ARE ALL FAMILY.
00:18:26SOME OF YOU KNOW MY STORY.
I'M PRIVILEGED TODAY TO HAVE MY
00:18:30UNCLE GEORGE HERE.
ALL UNCLE GEORGE WAS ONE OF
00:18:33EIGHT KIDS.
I STILL LOVE UNCLE GEORGE.
00:18:39HIS FATHER WAS A COAL MINER.
HE DIED OF COMPLICATIONS FROM
00:18:44BLACK LUNG.
UNCLE GEORGE, FROM A FAMILY OF
00:18:47EIGHT CHILDREN, UNCLE GEORGE
GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL.
00:18:52MY DAD, WHO CARRIED MAIL ON HIS
BACK FOR 20 YEARS GRADUATED FROM
00:18:58HIGH SCHOOL AND THE TWO SISTERS
GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL.
00:19:00THE OTHER FOUR BOYS NEVER GOT IT
DONE.
00:19:03THEY NEVER GRADUATED FROM HIGH
SCHOOL.
00:19:06BUT IT DID NOT MAKE THEM
ANYTHING LESS THAN GREAT.
00:19:09MY UNCLE STEVE ENDED UP FIGHTING
ON IWO JIMA AND BECOMING A WAR
00:19:16HERO WHO WEEK HONORED UNTIL THE
DAY HE WAS PUT IN THE GROUND.
00:19:20UNCLE GEORGE WENT ON TO COLLEGE
AND BECAME A GUIDANCE COUNSELOR
00:19:25AND WAS A GUIDANCE COUNSELOR --
THINK ABOUT THIS -- FOR 37
00:19:28YEARS.
HOW THE LORD WORKS AND HOW
00:19:33FAMILIES WORK.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS, WHEN YOU
00:19:37TALK ABOUT STEUBENVILLE AND YOU
TALK ABOUT THE ETHNICS AND
00:19:39PEOPLE WHO HAVE COMMON SENSE AND
YOU TALK ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE
00:19:42GOD-FEARING AND YOU THINK ABOUT
PEOPLE WHO CAN GET KNOCKED DOWN
00:19:47AND NEVER GET KNOCKED OUT --
THAT IS WHERE I COME FROM.
00:19:51THAT IS WHY COMING HERE EVEN
THIS MORNING, IT WAS A VERY
00:19:56EMOTIONAL FOR ME, THINKING ABOUT
THE FACT THAT THE LORD GIVING ME
00:20:01A CHANCE TO COME HERE AND STAND
UP HERE, JUST ANOTHER KID FROM
00:20:07AN ETHNIC, BLUE-COLLAR, HARD
WORKING TOWN WHERE PEOPLE PLAY
00:20:11BY THE RULES TO GET A CHANCE TO
DO SOMETHING AND LIFT PEOPLE,
00:20:15THAT'S WHY I CAME TO
STEUBENVILLE.
00:20:16THE EXCITEMENT WE HAVE ALL FELT
HAS CONFIRMED THIS DECISION TO
00:20:21COME HERE.
EVERYONE ASKS ME WHERE ARE YOU
00:20:24GOING TO GO NEXT YEAR?
WE CANNOT FORGET THE UNTIMELY
00:20:35AND TRAGIC DEATH OF ON THE WEST.
A YOUNG MAN KILLED IN A HOUSE
00:20:41FIRE.
-- THE TRAGIC DEATH OF LEE WEST.
00:20:46THE SCHOOL MOURNS, THE TOWN
MOURNS, THERE IS NO GREAT WORDS
00:20:50FOR THE WEST FAMILY.
BUT IT GIVES US A CHANCE FOR THE
00:20:55STUDENTS HERE TODAY FROM OUR
HIGH SCHOOL.
00:20:57INVITE THOSE KIDS THAT SOMETIMES
YOU THINK OF AS THE NERDS OR THE
00:21:05ONES TO GET IGNORED.
HUG THEM AND MAKE THEM FEEL
00:21:07SPECIAL BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN THE NEXT
00:21:10DAY.
MY MOM AND DAD WERE TAKEN FROM
00:21:14ME IN A HORRIBLE CAR CRASH IN
1987.
00:21:17BUT THEY DID NOT DIE IN VAIN.
THEIR SON BECAME A BETTER MAN.
00:21:21MAYBE THROUGH THE DEATH OF LEE,
WE CAN BECOME BETTER PEOPLE.
00:21:25BUT THIS IS THE FAMILY -- HUG
THEM AND TELL THEM WHAT A GREAT
00:21:31MAN LEE WAS AND DON'T JUST STOP
AFTER A WEEK.
00:21:33GO AND VISIT THEM.
YOU WILL BE DOING A GREAT
00:21:37SERVICE, NOT ONLY TO THEM BUT TO
THE LORD AS WELL.
00:21:40I THINK IT IS SO IMPORTANT.
WHEN I LOOK AT THESE THINGS, IT
00:21:45GETS ME SO PUMPED UP.
HOW FAR WE HAVE, -- WHERE WE ARE
00:21:52NOW -- AT SOME OF YOU HAVE HEARD
THIS BEFORE BUT MANY OF YOU HAVE
00:21:56NOT.
IT IS GOOD TO REFLECT BACK.
00:21:59ONE YEAR AGO, OHIO RANKED 48 IN
JOB CREATION.
00:22:03WE TRAILED ONLY MICHIGAN AND
CALIFORNIA IN LOST JOBS.
00:22:10MICHIGAN, THE HOME OF THE AUTO
INDUSTRY THAT WAS DEVASTATED,
00:22:15AND CALIFORNIA, FELLED BY A
BUNCH OF WHACKADOODLES.
00:22:21WHO WOULD HAVE EVER DREAMT WE
WOULD BE THE THIRD WORST.
00:22:27WHEN I CAME TO OHIO STATE IN THE
'70S, WHERE THE PROMISED LAND.
00:22:32SOMEHOW WE DRAFTED AND LOST
600,000 JOBS IN THE LAST 10
00:22:37YEARS.
400,000 JOBS GONE IN THE LAST
00:22:41FOUR YEARS.
400,000 FAMILIES.
00:22:45ONE-THIRD ARE COLLEGE STUDENTS
WERE LEAVING THE STATE WITHIN
00:22:50THREE YEARS OF GRADUATION.
THEY'RE FINDING THEIR DESTINY
00:22:54SOMEWHERE ELSE.
WHO CAN BLAME THEM?
00:22:56OHIO'S CREDIT OUTLOOK WAS
NEGATIVE AND WE THOUGHT THERE
00:23:00WAS A GOOD CHANCE -- WE THOUGHT
WE WOULD GET A DOWNGRADE AND WE
00:23:04WERE NERVOUS ABOUT.
THINK ABOUT IT FOR A SECOND --
00:23:10$8 BILLION IN THE HOLE.
$8 BILLION IN THE HOLE.
00:23:14THE LARGEST DEFICIT IN THE
HISTORY OF OHIO AND PEOPLE SAID
00:23:18THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN DEAL WITH
THIS.
00:23:20I WANT TO COMPLIMENT MY PARTNERS
IN THE LEGISLATURE, MY STAFF,
00:23:28THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE, I WILL
TELL YOU WHAT WE DID.
00:23:31WE LOOKED AT THE PROBLEMS
HONESTLY.
00:23:33WHEN POLITICS BECOMES THE ORDER
OF THE DAY, THE POWER OF SPECIAL
00:23:40INTEREST GROUPS BECOME THE ORDER
OF THE DAY, YOU REALLY GET
00:23:42CONFUSED.
BUT IF YOU LOOK AT A PROBLEM AND
00:23:46SEE WHAT IS AND DESIGN A
SOLUTION, IT IS AMAZING HOW FAR
00:23:49YOU CAN GO.
THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE DID
00:23:52THROUGH THIS PROCESS.
WHETHER WE KNOW IT OR NOT, SOME
00:23:55OF IT WAS VERY STRONGLY
BIPARTISAN.
00:23:59I KNOW IT IS NOT EASY SOME TIME
-- SOMETIMES TO LOOK AT THE
00:24:06PROBLEM, BUT THAT IS OUR JOB.
PEOPLE DON'T ELECT US TO GET A
00:24:10FAVOR.
THEY ELECT US BECAUSE OF WHAT WE
00:24:13REPRESENT PRINCIPALLY.
THAT IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.
00:24:17IT'S NOT EASY WHEN PEOPLE ATTACK
YOU AND MAKE PEOPLE FEEL
00:24:22UNCOMFORTABLE, BUT WHAT ARE YOU
DOING?
00:24:25IN SIX MONTHS, WE ELIMINATED AND
$8 MILLION BUDGET SHORTFALL.
00:24:33WE ARE BALANCED -- WE CUT TAXES
BY $300 MILLION.
00:24:39WHEN I CAME IN, WE HAD A RAINY
DAY FUND THAT HAD 89 CENTS.
00:24:43I'M TOLD THE BUDGET GURU CENT
AND 89 SENT A CHECK TO DOUBLE
00:24:53THE AMOUNT OF MONEY WE HAD IN
THE RAINY DAY FUND.
00:24:56TRY TO HUNDRED $47 MILLION IN
THE RAINY DAY FUND TODAY.
00:25:00IT IS PRETTY STAGGERING.
[APPLAUSE]
00:25:03AND WE DID IT THE RIGHT WAY.
WE WERE NOT GOING TO MERGE THE
00:25:13MENTALLY ILL, DISABLED OR THE
POOR.
00:25:14WE WERE JUST NOT GOING TO DO IT.
THEY HAVE A LOBBYIST.
00:25:20WE DON'T SEE HIM HERE.
THE BEST LOBBYIST IN THE WORLD.
00:25:25YOU WILL MEET HIM SUNDAY.
YOU CANNOT STEP ON THESE FOLKS.
00:25:30I TOLD JOHN MARTIN WE COULD NOT
PUSH TOO HARD ON THE MENTALLY
00:25:36ILL OR DISABLED OR THE PORT TO
TAKE AWAY FROM THEM -- OR THE
00:25:41POOR TO TAKE AWAY FROM THEM.
WE KNEW WE COULD NOT RAISE
00:25:44TAXES.
IF YOU KEEP RAISING TAXES, -- IF
00:25:55WE CONTINUE TO DO IT, WE WOULD
JUST CONTINUE TO HURT OURSELVES
00:25:59ECONOMICALLY.
IT'S NOT JUST A PHILOSOPHY OR
00:26:03SOME SORT OF IDEOLOGY, IT IS
WHAT MAKES SENSE.
00:26:06WE DID IT WITH REFORMING AND
RESHAPING AND YOU CANNOT CUT
00:26:13YOUR WAY TO PROSPERITY.
PEOPLE THINK I'M A BIG BUDGET
00:26:17CUTTER, BUT I WOULD RATHER WORK
TO COME UP WITH A BETTER
00:26:20SOLUTION.
HOW ABOUT MEDICAID?
00:26:22MEDICAID HAS BEEN OUT OF CONTROL
AS PART OF THE STATE BUDGET
00:26:26FOREVER.
I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW WE GOT
00:26:30GREAT MOODY -- HE COMES IN AND
HAS GREAT EXPERIENCE AND LEASES
00:26:35PRIVATE SECTOR JOB AND HAS A
VISION FOR HOW WE CAN HELP IT.
00:26:37-- LEAVES HIS PRIVATE SECTOR
JOB.
00:26:42HOW MANY YEARS DID YOU READ THE
STUDIES ABOUT MOM AND DAD
00:26:46STAYING IN THEIR OWN HOME
INSTEAD OF GOING INTO A NURSING
00:26:49HOME.
HOW MANY YEARS DID WE SAY HOME
00:26:52HEALTH CARE AND THE ABILITY FOR
MOM AND DAD TO BE HEALTHIER
00:26:54OUGHT TO BE ACCOMPLISHED AND WE
COULDN'T DO IT, BUT WE DID IT IN
00:26:58THIS BUDGET.
MOM AND DAD CAN STAY AT HOME AT
00:27:01ABOUT A FIFTH OF THE COSTS OF
BEING IN A NURSING HOME.
00:27:04THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK ON THAT.
[APPLAUSE]
00:27:06WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO INTEGRATE
MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH.
00:27:17IF YOU HAVE MENTAL HEALTH
ISSUES, YOU HAVE PHYSICAL HEALTH
00:27:20ISSUES.
THE ABILITY TO INTEGRATE THEM
00:27:24MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THE
LIVES OF THOSE PEOPLE AND WE ARE
00:27:26DOING IT.
WE FOUND OUT THAT 4% OF THE
00:27:29MEDICAID POPULATION DRIVES OVER
50% OF THE COST.
00:27:32SO MOODY CAME UP WITH THIS PLAN
TO GUIDE THEM IN THE RIGHT WAY.
00:27:37WE ALL KNOW THAT TOO OFTEN POOR
PEOPLE GET PRIMARY CARE IN AN
00:27:42EMERGENCY ROOM.
YOU CANNOT GET PRIMARY CARE IN
00:27:45AN EMERGENCY ROOM.
YOU'VE GOT TO GET FROM A
00:27:49PRIMARY-CARE PHYSICIAN.
SO WE ARE CREATING THIS CONCEPT
00:27:52OF THE MEDICAL HOME.
WE COORDINATE THEIR CARE AND WE
00:27:58BRING CERTAINTY AND ELIMINATE
THE CONFUSION THAT MANY SICK
00:28:01PEOPLE HAVE BECAUSE THEY DO NOT
KNOW WHERE THEY ARE GOING.
00:28:04WE CAN COORDINATE THEIR CARE,
GET THEM THE RIGHT SETTING, THEY
00:28:08WILL BE MORE COMFORTABLE AND
HEALTHY AND THE QUALITY OF
00:28:12MADISON WILL IMPROVE.
AND WE WILL SAVE MONEY.
00:28:13-- THE QUALITY OF MEDICINE WILL
IMPROVE.
00:28:17WE'RE SPENDING MORE ON THE LOW
BIRTH WEIGHT MOMS.
00:28:24I PROMISED THAT A YEAR AGO.
WE ARE TRYING TO DO SO MANY
00:28:27THINGS AT ONCE BUT WHAT WE DO
NOW?
00:28:30THERE IS A COUPLE IN RICHLAND
COUNTY THAT FIGURED OUT HOW TO
00:28:34DEAL WITH THE PROBLEM OF WOMEN
THAT HAVE LOW BIRTH WEIGHT
00:28:36BABIES.
IF WE CAN GET TO THEM,
00:28:39COORDINATE THEIR CARE AND DO THE
THINGS AROUND IT, WE CAN CUT THE
00:28:44INCIDENCE OF LOW BIRTHWEIGHT
BABIES BY AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT.
00:28:47THINK OF THE SAVINGS AND THINK
OF HOW HAPPY THE MOM IS AND HOW
00:28:51GREAT IT IS FOR THE BABY.
THAT IS WHAT WE'RE DOING.
00:28:55WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO BUT WE
ARE DOING IT.
00:28:57LET ME TELL YOU WE ARE WORKING
WITH THE PRIVATE SECTOR.
00:29:02PROCTER AND GAMBLE AND GENERAL
ELECTRIC AND COMPANIES DOWN IN
00:29:06CINCINNATI, WHEN THEY HAVE
GOTTEN DOWN ON PAPER AND REFORM
00:29:10HAVE OUTCOME-BASED MEDICINE.
RIGHT NOW, WE PAY PEOPLE ON THE
00:29:15BASIS OF HOW MANY IN THE DOOR
AND OUT THE DOOR.
00:29:17THAT'S NOT HOW WE SHOULD PAY
THEM.
00:29:19WE SHOULD PAY THEM ON THE BASIS
OF THEIR OUTCOME.
00:29:22WE SHOULD PAY THEM ON THE BASIS
ON THE FACT IF YOU GIVE -- IF
00:29:26YOU KEEP ME HEALTHY AND GET THE
PRIMARY CARE, WE WILL PAY YOU
00:29:29MORE MONEY.
IT WILL IMPROVE QUALITY AND
00:29:31SATISFACTION AND REDUCE THE
COST.
00:29:32I HAVE TALKED TO MR. FAR OF
ABOUT HELPING US TO DEVELOP A
00:29:40NATIONAL PROGRAM TO ALL BUT THE
ADMINISTRATION.
00:29:43WE WANT TO INVOLVE HER IN THIS
AND WE WANT THIS TO BE
00:29:55BIPARTISAN GOING FORWARD.
SENTENCING REFORM.
00:29:58HOW LONG DID WE WAIT?
I ALWAYS LIKE TO POINT TO MY
00:30:05BUDDY, THE PROSECUTOR WHO STOOD
UP AND SAID WE ARE NOT GOING TO
00:30:10JUST PLAY POLITICS.
LOCKING 12,000 PEOPLE UP TO A
00:30:19HARDENED CRIMINALS FOR LESS THAN
A YEAR, WE THINK WE ARE DOING
00:30:23GOOD?
THIS GUIDE IS IN CORRECTIONS
00:30:28REFORM, AND BECAUSE OF YOUR WORK
IN THE LEGISLATURE AND BECAUSE
00:30:31OF YOUR CONSTANCE -- CONSTANT
INSISTENCE ON IMPROVING THE
00:30:34SITUATION, WE WERE ABLE TO PASS
REFORM WHERE PEOPLE CAN GET
00:30:43THEIR LIVES BACK AND HAVE A
SECOND CHANCE.
00:30:44WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT REFORMING
PRISONS AND GIVING PEOPLE AN
00:30:49EASIER TIME, IT IS A GREAT
APPLAUSE LINE AT A REPUBLICAN
00:30:52DINNER.
I'M NOT LOOKING FOR THOSE.
00:30:57I'M LOOKING FOR GIVING PEOPLE A
SECOND CHANCE.
00:31:00IF YOU HAVE BEEN A VIOLENT
OFFENDER AND YOU ARE IN PRISON
00:31:03AND YOU WANT TO WORK A WAY OUT
OF THAT, WE WILL GIVE YOU A
00:31:06CHANCE.
WE WILL CREATE A PROCESS BY
00:31:08WHICH PEOPLE CAN WORK THEIR WAY
BACK.
00:31:10IF YOU CREATE VIOLENCE IN THE
PRISON, WE WILL LOCK YOU UP FOR
00:31:171000 YEARS, HAVE NO DOUBT ABOUT
THAT CONSTRUCTION REFORM, THE
00:31:24ABOUT THIS.
YOU BUILD A HOUSE AND EVERYBODY
00:31:26IS A MULTIPLE PRIME DATE.
CAN YOU IMAGINE?
00:31:29IT DRIVES THE COST OF SKY HIGH.
GORDON IS WITH US TODAY.
00:31:36HE IS THE PRESIDENT OF OHIO
UNIVERSITY.
00:31:39STAND UP.
THERE HE IS.
00:31:41[APPLAUSE]
GORDON SAID IF WE CAN GO TO A
00:31:47SINGLE PRIME CONTRACTOR WE CAN
CUT THE COST OF BUILDING THE NEW
00:31:50HOSPITAL BY 25%.
WE DO NOT DO IT ANYMORE AFTER
00:31:58120 YEARS OF DOING IT.
WHO WILL BENEFIT?
00:32:01STUDENTS, FAMILIES, THROUGH WILL
WORK TUITION AND LOWER COSTS.
00:32:05THANKS, GORDON, FOR HE DID FOR
THE OTHER PRESIDENTS WHO WERE
00:32:09NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO DO THIS.
1962-63, JIM RHODES GREETED THE
00:32:16DEPARTMENT OF DEVELOPMENT.
IT WORKED FINE FOR A WHILE BUT
00:32:19IT HAS BECOME SLOW,
BUREAUCRATIC, OUTDATED,
00:32:23ATROPHIED.
TOM SAWYER IS OUT HERE, AND I
00:32:27JUST CALLED HIM THE OTHER DAY AS
WE MOVED THROUGH THE CONTROLLING
00:32:31BOARD.
TOM WAS THERE WHEN WE FIRST
00:32:33BROUGHT UP JOBS OHIO.
IF WE HAD BIPARTISAN SUPPORT.
00:32:36NOT OVERWHELMING, OBVIOUSLY.
BUT WE THOUGHT IF WE COULD
00:32:40CREATE AN ENTITY THAT COULD MOVE
AT THE SPEED OF THE MARKETPLACE
00:32:43AND NOT THE SPEED OF THE STATUTE
-- BECAUSE I SAW THE SPEED OF
00:32:47THE STATUTE AND A GLACIER, AND
THE GLACIER WON.
00:32:50[LAUGHTER]
IN THE 21ST CENTURY YOU HAVE GOT
00:32:55TO MOVE AT THE SPEED OF THE
MARKETPLACE.
00:32:57INSTEAD OF OHIO IT IS STARTING
TO BEAR FRUIT ALREADY.
00:32:59WHO KNOWS WHAT WE WILL SEE NEXT,
RIGHT?
00:33:07IT IS AMAZING.
EDUCATION REFORM.
00:33:10THINK ABOUT THIS.
NO MOM AND DAD TURN HAVE THEIR
00:33:14KIDS IN THE SCHOOL WHERE THEY
ARE NOT SAFE AND NOT LEARNING.
00:33:16-- JANELLE MOM AND DAD SHOULD
HAVE THEIR KIDS IN SCHOOL WHERE
00:33:20THEY ARE NOT SAFE AND NOT
LEARNING.
00:33:22-- AND TELL MOM AND DAD SHOULD
HAVE THEIR KIDS IN SCHOOL WHERE
00:33:26THEY'RE NOT SAFE AND NOT
LEARNING.
00:33:28[APPLAUSE]
THIS IS NOT AN ATTACK ON PUBLIC
00:33:32SCHOOLTEACHERS.
WE OUGHT TO ON THE ONES WE SEE
00:33:33HOW YOU'RE JUST LIKE THE ONES WE
SEE AT WELLS ACADEMY.
00:33:36-- THE ONES WE SEE OUT HERE JUST
LIKE THE ONES WE SEE AT WALZ
00:33:41ACADEMY.
BUT WHEN THE SCHOOLS ARE NOT
00:33:43WORKING, OUR CHILDREN GO.
WE WENT IN THE STATE FROM 13,000
00:33:48VOUCHERS TO 30,000 FAMILIES WHO
COULD HAVE MORE CHOICE AND MORE
00:33:54FREEDOM TO NEXT YEAR, 60,000
VOUCHERS.
00:33:57I DO NOT KNOW THAT EXISTS
ANYWHERE IN AMERICA.
00:33:59[APPLAUSE]
AND IT WILL GIVE OUR POOR PEOPLE
00:34:02A CHANCE.
WE LOOKED AT THE CAP ON THE
00:34:07NUMBER OF CHARTER SCHOOLS.
AND LET ME MAKE IT CLEAR, IF
00:34:11YOU'RE AN UNDERPERFORMING
CHARTER SCHOOL, WE ARE BEYOND
00:34:14YOU.
WE HAVE TO HAVE EXCELLENCE IN
00:34:16EVERY SCHOOL.
IT IS NOT WORKING, I WILL ASK
00:34:20THE LEGISLATURE TO EXERCISE
PROPER OVERSIGHT.
00:34:23YOU CAN APPLAUD FOR THAT,
BECAUSE I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE
00:34:25ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THAT.
[APPLAUSE]
00:34:27AND IF THE SCHOOL CONTINUES TO
FAIL, PARENTS AND TEACHERS HAVE
00:34:32THE POWER TO TAKE THE SCHOOL
OVER THEMSELVES.
00:34:34AND I WANT TO GIVE A BIG SHOUT
OUT TO STAN HAFNER, A MAN WHO
00:34:39HAS DECIDED THAT HE IS COMMITTED
TO LETTING MOM AND DAD'S NO
00:34:46ACROSS THE STATE HOW THE KIDS
ARE DOING.
00:34:49-- LETTING MOMS AND DADS NO
ACROSS THE STATE HAVE THE KIDS
00:34:52ARE DOING.
HE WANTS BONDS AND ADDS TO KNOW
00:34:55HOW THE KIDS ARE DOING.
AND I'M VERY PROUD OF THE FACT
00:34:59THAT WE DID TEACHER EVALUATION.
THAT 19 MEETINGS ACROSS THE
00:35:03STATE, 1400 E-MAILS FROM
TEACHERS.
00:35:05TEACHERS DO NOT MIND BEING
EVALUATED.
00:35:09BUT THEY DO NOT WANT TO GET THE
SHORT END OF THE STICK.
00:35:11THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THERE ARE
MULTIPLE WAYS TO BE MEASURED.
00:35:14AND WE LISTENED TO THEM.
IT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE DID.
00:35:18WE TOOK THIS FRAMEWORK TO THE
STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION.
00:35:21AND AS I MENTIONED TO HARMON
BUDISH EARLIER TODAY, THE
00:35:33LEGISLATURE, WE GOT THIS
FRAMEWORK APPROVED.
00:35:36AND FRANKLY, WITH THE RACE TO
THE TOP, WHERE I GIVE ARNE
00:35:40DUNCAN AND THE PRESIDENT GREAT
CREDIT FOR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE
00:35:43THERE, WE ARE MOVING OHIO
FORWARD, BUT WE HAVE A LONG WAY
00:35:46TO GO.
WHERE ARE WE TODAY?
00:35:48I COULD GO ON OTHER THINGS, BUT
THAT WOULD ONE FOR EVER.
00:35:51WHERE ARE WE TODAY?
OHIO IS THE NUMBER-ONE JOB
00:35:55CREATOR IN THE MIDWEST TODAY AS
WE SIT HERE, NUMBER ONE.
00:35:57[APPLAUSE]
WE ARE THE NO. 9 JOB CREATOR IN
00:36:11AMERICA.
FROM 48 TO 9 IN ONE YEAR.
00:36:15[APPLAUSE]
LEGISLATION, PEOPLE.
00:36:18[APPLAUSE]
IT IS ABOUT TIME, BECAUSE WE
00:36:42ARE A POWER HOUSE HERE IN OHIO.
AND OUR PRIVATE SECTOR JOB
00:36:45GROWTH, RATHER THAN LOSING THE
400,000 JOBS OVER THE LAST FOUR
00:36:49YEARS, WE CREATED 43,500 NEW
JOBS, A NET INCREASE OF 43,500
00:36:56FAMILIES.
AND IN TOTAL MANUFACTURING JOBS,
00:37:01IT IS NOT JUST AUTOS.
BELIEVE ME, AND I'M GOING TO
00:37:05TELL YOU ANY MOMENT -- 14,400
MANUFACTURING JOBS.
00:37:10GOD MAKES SOME PEOPLE TO MAKE
THINGS.
00:37:12AND IT'S COMING BACK TO AMERICA,
AND BACK TO OHIO.
00:37:16JOBS IN OHIO AND OUR ECONOMIC
TEAM HAVE PRODUCED IN RESULT OF
00:37:20SAVING OR CREATING NEW JOBS AND
IN WORKING WITH THOSE COMPANIES
00:37:23THAT ON THEIR OWN DECIDED TO
MOVE FORWARD, $4.7 MILLION IN
00:37:27PAYROLL.
THAT IS A LOT OF MONEY THAT GETS
00:37:30SPENT IN PAYROLL.
[APPLAUSE]
00:37:31$3.2 BILLION IN CAPITAL
INVESTMENT THAT IS NEW.
00:37:38THAT MEANS THEY ARE TAKING $3.2
BILLION AND PUTTING IT INTO OUR
00:37:42STATE.
IT IS JUST SUCH INCREDIBLE NEWS.
00:37:44THINK ABOUT WHAT IT SAVES -- D-
BOLT.
00:37:53WHAT A GREAT SAVE FOUR OHIO.
WHEN THESE CAME BACK HOME TO
00:37:59COLUMBUS WHERE -- WENDY'S CAME
BACK TO OHIO IN COLUMBUS WHERE
00:38:07IT BELONGS.
THEY DOWNGRADED THE UNITED
00:38:11STATES'S RATING, DOWNGRADED
SPAYED, DOWNGRADED FRANCE,
00:38:18DOWNGRADED ITALY, AND THE
IMPROVED OUR CREDIT RATING ALL
00:38:23AT THE SAME TIME.
WE HAVE GONE FROM NEGATIVE
00:38:25CREDIT WATCH TO STABLE.
THAT SENDS THE SIGNAL ALL ACROSS
00:38:30THIS COUNTRY THAT OHIO IS READY
AND OPEN FOR BUSINESS.
00:38:33[APPLAUSE]
EVERYBODY WANTS TO SAY HOW
00:38:40PARTISAN EVERYTHING IS.
BALONEY.
00:38:43IT IS NOT TRUE.
IT HAS BEEN PARTISAN AT TIMES, I
00:38:47MEAN, SOMETIMES, REALLY
PARTISAN.
00:38:50I GET IT.
I DID NOT FALL OFF A TURNIP
00:38:52TRUCK OVER HERE.
BUT LET'S THINK ABOUT THESE
00:38:55THINGS, THE COMMON SENSE
INITIATIVE.
00:38:59MARY TAYLOR, OUR LIEUTENANT
GOVERNOR, THIS IS A PROGRAM
00:39:02WHERE WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE
SENSE OF THINGS AND NOT TURNING
00:39:05BUSINESS DOWN BECAUSE THEY'RE
DOING DUMB THINGS IN GOVERNMENT.
00:39:08LET ME GIVE YOU JUST ONE STORY.
THE OHIO LIQUOR LAW REQUIRE FOOD
00:39:13MANUFACTURERS TO PURCHASE ALL IN
RETAIL CONTAINERS AT RETAIL
00:39:16PRICES.
ONE RECIPE FOR MERLOT WINE SAUCE
00:39:19CALLED FOR 140,000 POUNDS OF
WIND THAT HAD TO PURCHASE, AND
00:39:24COURT, POOR AND STERILIZE ONE
BOTTLE AT A TIME.
00:39:27NO SITTING ALLOWED.
-- NO SIPPING AT A TIME.
00:39:34[LAUGHTER]
DABEL BLOGGER HAVE TO DO THAT.
00:39:37THAT IS JUST A COMMON SENSE
LITTLE THING -- THEY WILL NO
00:39:41LONGER HAVE TO DO THAT.
THAT IS JUST A COMMON SENSE
00:39:44LITTLE THING.
WE WERE SOMETHING OUT JOBS
00:39:46BECAUSE WE DID NOT HAVE IT
TOGETHER.
00:39:48MARY IS TRYING TO DO THAT AND
IT'S OVERWHELMING BIPARTISAN FOR
00:39:51THE COMMON SENSE INITIATIVE.
THIS AND SITTING REFORM -- THE
00:39:56SENTENCING REFORM HAVE ALREADY
MENTIONED.
00:39:58IS JENNIFER BRICKNER IN HERE?
-- JENNIFER BRUNER IN HERE?
00:40:05I HAVE ASKED HER TO WORK ON
COLLATERAL SANCTIONS.
00:40:10DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU HAVE A
FELONY CONVICTION AND YOU SERVE
00:40:17YOUR TIME AND YOU COME OUT OF
PRISON, DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE
00:40:21PROHIBITED FROM CUTTING HAIR OR
DRIVING A TRUCK?
00:40:23WE CANNOT HAVE THAT.
WE'RE GOING TO FIX THAT.
00:40:28I HAVE ASKED JENNIFER TO HELP,
AND GARY.
00:40:31WE HAVE CONVENED A MEETING ON
AN EARLY-MORNING AND SHIRLEY
00:40:35SMITH IS HUGGING ME.
IT IS WHY I BELIEVE IN GOD.
00:40:37[LAUGHTER]
I SAID TO THOSE WHO ARE THE
00:40:43HARD-CORE RIGHT-WING, LOCK THEM
UP FOREVER -- WE CANNOT DO THAT.
00:40:48I SAID TO THE LEFT WING, GET OUT
OF JAIL FREE CARDS.
00:40:50WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HUMAN
BEINGS.
00:40:53YOU CANNOT BE IN A POSITION
WHERE YOU HAVE PAID YOUR PRICE
00:40:57AND YOU WANT TO GET BACK AND YOU
CANNOT GET A COMMERCIAL DRIVER'S
00:41:00LICENSE.
IT IS ONE OF THE MOST NEEDED
00:41:02THINGS IN THE ERA OF OIL AND GAS
TODAY.
00:41:04WE'RE GOING TO GET THIS DONE.
WE HAVE ANOTHER SHOT -- ANOTHER
00:41:12ASSIGNMENT TO DO.
THE WAR ON DRUGS.
00:41:16BOB JOHNSON AND BURK.
WE CLOSE DOWN THE PILLS IN THE
00:41:22COUNTY, AND IT MADE A
DIFFERENCE DID NOW?
00:41:25[APPLAUSE]
AND WE ARE CRACKING DOWN ON ALL
00:41:30THESE DOCTORS THAT ARE NOT DOING
THEIR JOB AND ARE USING THE
00:41:33CORRECT -- THE PRACTICE.
HIGHWAY PATROL, BY THE WAY, THEY
00:41:37ARE A FIRED UP GROUP AGAIN.
THEY'RE VERY INVOLVED IN DRUG
00:41:42INTERDICTION, AND VERY -- LADIES
AND GENTLEMEN, THE WAR ON DRUGS
00:41:48IS SOMETHING WE HAVE TO PAY
ATTENTION TO BECAUSE IT IS
00:41:51WRECKING OUR COMMUNITY.
[APPLAUSE]
00:41:52AND WE ARE WORKING WITH THE
HIGHWAY PATROL TO GET THAT DONE.
00:41:57BUT AGAIN, ANOTHER BIPARTISAN
EFFORT -- I WAS IN THE HOUSE
00:42:01WHEN IT PASSED UNANIMOUSLY.
IT WENT OVER TO THE SENATE AND
00:42:04IT FLEW THROUGH.
TEACH FOR AMERICA, REMEMBER, I
00:42:07SAID A YEAR AGO WE OUGHT TO HAVE
TEACH FOR AMERICA.
00:42:09AND IN A SNAP OF THE FIGURES WE
HAVE TEACH FOR AMERICA COMING.
00:42:14WE HAVE ALL OF THESE YOUNG
PEOPLE COMING WHO ARE FIRED UP
00:42:17AND WANT TO BREATHE NEW LIFE
INTO OUR SCHOOLS.
00:42:19IT IS GOING TO BE FANTASTIC TO
SEE THE WAY THAT IT WORKS.
00:42:22LET ME ALSO SAY THAT -- I DO NOT
EVEN KNOW HOW TO TELL YOU THIS.
00:42:28WE HAVE 1000 OHIO CHILDREN, THE
AVERAGE AGE 13 YEARS OF AGE,
00:42:42THERE ARE IN THE SLAVE TRADE
BUSINESS.
00:42:43IN OUR STATE.
TO RESEARCH -- TERESA FEDERER,
00:42:56SHE IS ON FIRE ABOUT THIS.
1000 ARE CHILDREN, AGE 13 -- IT
00:43:02IS HARD FOR ME TO EVEN THINK
ABOUT.
00:43:05MY GIRLS ARE 12.
COULD YOU IMAGINE SOMEONE
00:43:07SNATCHING YOUR DAUGHTER?
AND SOMEBODY FORCING THEM INTO
00:43:11PROSTITUTION?
AT 13 AND 14 YEARS OF AGE.
00:43:15I CALLED COLONEL CHARLES
YESTERDAY.
00:43:22I SAID, YOU KNOW THE WAR ON
DRUGS, WE HAVE GOT TO HAVE A WAR
00:43:25ON THE SLAVE TRADE BUSINESS IN
OHIO [APPLAUSE]
00:43:27WE HAVE GOT TO STOP THIS.
WE HAVE GOT TO SNUFF THIS OUT.
00:43:36[APPLAUSE]
LET ME ALSO TELL YOU, IF IT WAS
00:43:53NOT FOR BIPARTISAN SUPPORT, I
WOULD NOT BE STANDING IN
00:43:56STEUBENVILLE TODAY.
[LAUGHTER]
00:43:57[APPLAUSE]
OK, NOW WE CAN GET TO A REALLY
00:44:06COOL PARK, I HOPE.
YOU KNOW, THAT IS REALLY
00:44:11REMARKABLE.
WE'RE ALIVE AGAIN.
00:44:14WE ARE OUT OF THE DITCH.
WE'RE GROWING.
00:44:15THIS IS NOT ME.
IT IS ALL OF US, THE PEOPLE OF
00:44:22THIS STATE.
I AM JUST THRILLED TO BE A PART
00:44:24OF IT.
THAT IS ALL I EVER WANTED IN
00:44:26THIS JOB.
IT IS HAPPENING.
00:44:28BUT WE HAVE CULTURAL CHANGES
THAT WE OUGHT TO MAKE, AND
00:44:31PEOPLE THAT WILL REPRESENT THE
STATUS QUO WILL FIGHT AS FOR THE
00:44:35NEXT SERIES OF THINGS THAT HAVE
TO GET DONE -- REMEMBER YOUR
00:44:40PURPOSE IN THE LEGISLATURE.
BUT I ALSO THINK IT IS -- I GET
00:44:44FIRED UP WHEN I READ THE STORIES
OF OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE HEROES.
00:44:47IT GIVES ME MORE ENERGY.
I REMEMBER READING "FEAR NO
00:44:53EVIL."
IT WAS SAID IN A SOVIET PRISON.
00:44:58IT WAS PHONIED UP, TRUMPED UP
CHARGES OF BEING A TRAITOR.
00:45:01THEY SAID, IF YOU SIGN A
STATEMENT AND NOT -- RENOUNCING
00:45:05WHAT YOU DID, WE WILL LET YOU
OUT OF THE GULAG.
00:45:08HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF AND THEY
SAID, THEY USED GALILEO AGAINST
00:45:13ME.
THEY WILL NOT USE ME AND GET
00:45:15SOMEBODY ELSE.
JOHN ADAMS, A NAVY SEAL.
00:45:18WE WORRY ABOUT POLITICS.
EVERY DAY THIS GUY GOES TO WORK
00:45:25AND PUT HIS LIFE ON THE LINE AND
SERVES, LIKE SO MANY OTHER
00:45:28VETERANS IN HERE.
LET'S LEARN FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE
00:45:31ALIVE AND COURAGEOUS.
I AM STARTING SOMETHING NEW, AND
00:45:34I HOPE IT WILL ALWAYS LAST --
THE GOVERNOR'S COURAGE AWARD.
00:45:39I WROTE A BOOK IN 1997-98.
IT WAS CALLED "COURAGE IS
00:45:45CONTAGIOUS."
THE FIRST CHAPTER WERE -- WAS
00:45:48ABOUT TWO BOYS WHO DIED ONE OF
THEM SAID, THAT JOHN KASICH, HE
00:45:54IS JUST A LITTLE BOY IN A
CONGRESSMAN'S BODY.
00:45:56I THINK YOU SAW IT -- YOU SHINE
A LOT OF PEOPLE TO DO SPECIAL
00:46:02THINGS.
TODAY, WE'RE GOING TO SHINE A
00:46:05LIGHT ON THREE PEOPLE.
THE FIRST ONE I WANT TO TELL YOU
00:46:08ABOUT IS JOEANNA KROHN.
JOEANNA HAD A SON, A SENIOR IN
00:46:16HIGH SCHOOL.
HE LOST HIS LIFE BECAUSE A
00:46:19PRESCRIPTION DRUGS.
SHE FORMED A GROUP CALLED
00:46:22SOLACE.
ANNIE, AND DR. JOHNSON, AND SO
00:46:26MANY OTHER PEOPLE -- MY GREAT
FRIEND, TOM NIEHAUS, THEY KNOW
00:46:31ABOUT SOLACE.
RIGHT BEFORE HE WAS SWORN IN,
00:46:36AND THESE LADIES WERE UP HERE IN
THEIR PINK SHIRTS, AND THEY MADE
00:46:39ME CRY BECAUSE THEY SAID, WE
WANT YOU TO HELP US.
00:46:41JOEANNA CRKROHN COULD HAVE FADED
AWAY WITH A 17, 18-YEAR-OLD KID
00:46:53GONE, BUT SHE STOOD UP AND MADE
A PURPOSE OF WHAT SHE NEEDED TO
00:46:57DO TO RALLY NOT ONLY HER, BUT
ALL OF THESE WOMEN THAT WERE
00:47:00PART OF SOLACE.
THESE ARE BEAUTIFUL METADALS.
00:47:15A MAN OF COURAGE IS A BEAUTIFUL
MAN OF FAITH -- QUOTATION FROM
00:47:24CICERO.
THIS IS JUST A TOKEN, JOANN,
00:47:27ABOUT WHAT WE FEEL ABOUT WHAT
YOU HAVE DONE AND THE LADIES
00:47:32FROM SOLACE.
AND WE DO THIS ALSO IN MEMORY OF
00:47:35YOUR SWEET SON, WHO DID NOT DIE
IN VAIN.
00:47:38, AND RECEIVE THIS AWARD.
-- COME AND RECEIVE THIS AWARD.
00:47:48[APPLAUSE]
>> YOU DID GREAT, THANK YOU.
00:47:54>> THANK YOU.
[APPLAUSE]
00:47:55I HAVE JUST -- >> I HAVE JUST
TALKED TO YOU ABOUT HUMAN
00:48:14TRAFFICKING.
ADULTS USE MANIPULATION,
00:48:17BLACKMAIL, AND EVEN FORCED TO
TAKE OUR TEENAGERS AND MAKE THEM
00:48:22PROSTITUTES OR SLAVE LABOR, OR
WORSE.
00:48:24WHEN HUMAN TRAFFICKER HERE IN
OHIO -- ONE HUMAN TRAFFICKERS
00:48:32HERE IN OHIO REFUSED TO SIT
DOWN AND ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.
00:48:38THERESE THE JOINS ME HERE ON THE
STAGE.
00:48:39WHEN SHE WAS A TEENAGER, SHE
WAS EXPLOITED.
00:48:43BLACKMAILED, TRAPPED IN A HELL
OF ABUSE THAT SHE COULD NOT
00:48:46ESCAPE.
THERE WAS NOT ANYBODY TO HELP
00:48:51HER.
THERE WAS NO SUPPORT, NO ONE TO
00:48:53HELP HER GET FREE.
CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT?
00:48:55ABUSED, DRUGGED, BEATEN, RAPED
-- BUT SHE DID NOT GIVE UP
00:49:06SOMEHOW.
I DO NOT KNOW HOW SHE DID IT.
00:49:08TODAY, SHE IS A LICENSED SOCIAL
WORKER IN COLUMBUS, A LICENSED
00:49:13SOCIAL WORKER IN COLUMBUS.
AND SHE HELPED LIBERATE OTHER
00:49:17WOMEN TRAPPED IN HUMAN
TRAFFICKING.
00:49:21HER COURAGE HAS HELPED HER TO
TURN HER EXPERIENCE AROUND AND
00:49:24MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN COUNTLESS
LIVES.
00:49:27THERESA, COME AND GET THIS
METAL.
00:49:29-- MEDAL.
[APPLAUSE]
00:49:34WE DO NOT WANT TO SEE THOSE ON
E-BAY, LADIES.
00:50:08[LAUGHTER]
WELL, I WENT TO DAYTON FOR A
00:50:20CEREMONY HONORING U.S. ARMY
SPECIALIST JESSE SNOW.
00:50:28HE LOST HIS LIFE IN WAR.
JESSE WAS IN AFGHANISTAN AND HE
00:50:39CRAWLED THROUGH ENEMY FIRE TO
HELP HIS COMRADES.
00:50:46HE LOST HIS WEAPON.
HE SECURED AMMUNITION.
00:50:55HE PERFORMED FIRST-AID.
HE USED HIS BODY TO SHIELD OTHER
00:51:04PEOPLE.
IT IS HOW HE DIED.
00:51:09HE THREW HIS BODY IN FRONT OF
OTHERS SO THEY MIGHT LIVE.
00:51:11AND THIS WAS NOT SOME SNAP OF
THE FIGURE DECISION.
00:51:17HE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS
DOING -- SNAP OF THE FIGURE
00:51:22DECISION.
HE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS
00:51:24DOING HE COMES FROM A FAMILY
THAT HAS TREMENDOUS PATRIOTISM
00:51:29AND SERVICE TO THE COUNTRY.
I DO NOT THINK I HAVE QUITE EVER
00:51:32BEEN TO A CEREMONY LIKE THAT,
MR. SNOW.
00:51:36YOU LOVED YOUR BROTHER, DIDN'T
YOU, YOUNG MAN?
00:51:39YEAH, YOU LOVED HER BROTHER,
ALEX.
00:51:45WE KNOW HE HAS BEEN HONORED WITH
THE SYMBOL STARKE.
00:51:48HE WILL GET AN ADDITIONAL -- THE
SILVER STAR.
00:51:52HE WILL GET AN ADDITIONAL METAL
BEFORE IT IS ALSO -- AN
00:51:57ADDITIONAL MEDAL BEFORE IT IS
ALL SAID AND DONE.
00:52:02IT IS NOT ENOUGH FOR ME, BECAUSE
I CAN GIVE ONE MORE HONOR AND
00:52:05ONE MORE MEDAL TO THE SNOW
FAMILY.
00:52:10MR. SNOW, ALEX, PLEASE COME AND
GET THE MEDAL.
00:52:15[APPLAUSE]
[APPLAUSE]
00:52:47I WANT ALL THE VETERANS WHO HAVE
SERVED THIS COUNTRY TO STAN
00:53:13NOWLIN RECOGNIZED.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, AND JOIN
00:53:16ME IN SALUTING -- TO STAND NOW
AND BE RECOGNIZED.
00:53:20LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, JOIN ME IN
SALUTING OUR VETERANS.
00:53:23[APPLAUSE]
I HOPE YOU ARE INSPIRED BY THEM.
00:53:29I KNOW YOU ARE.
AND THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT
00:53:34THINGS TO DO FOR OUR STATE.
AND WE HAVE GOT TO REMEMBER
00:53:37THESE PEOPLE.
I DO NOT WANT -- I NOTE TO BE A
00:53:41PREACHER YOU HAVE TO WEAR A
COLLAR, BUT I WANT TO TELL YOU,
00:53:44I WAS A MEMBER OF THE
LEGISLATURE.
00:53:46IT WAS VERY INTERESTING
SOMETIMES I FOUGHT WITH MY OWN
00:53:50PARTY.
IT HAPPENS.
00:53:51THAT IS WHAT MOM TOLD ME TO DO,
STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE
00:53:57IN.
18 YEARS IN THE CONGRESS, WE
00:54:01BALANCED BUDGETS, MILITARY
REFORM.
00:54:06YOU KNOW, I LEARNED A COUPLE OF
THINGS.
00:54:08WE HAVE A LOT OF NEW MEMBERS
HERE.
00:54:11I THINK YOU HAVE TO STEER CLEAR
OF MINDLESS PARTISANSHIP.
00:54:16I HAVE TO RESET HERE TODAY.
IF YOU TOOK 100 THINGS, SHE AND
00:54:23I WOULD NOT AGREE ON 10.
THAT IS OK BECAUSE I LIKE HER
00:54:27AND SHE LIKES ME AND SHE
BELIEVES MY HEART IS IN THE
00:54:30RIGHT PLACE AND I KNOW HERS IS.
WHY NOT SEARCHED TO DO THINGS
00:54:33BETTER?
BEING A GOOD REPUBLICAN OR BEING
00:54:37A BIT -- A GOOD DEMOCRAT, YOU
HAVE LOST IT.
00:54:40THEY DO NOT GIVE YOU AWARDS FOR
BEING A PARTISAN.
00:54:43YOU HAVE GOT TO RESPECT YOUR
PHILOSOPHY AND CARRIED OUT, BUT
00:54:48IF YOU LOOK AT -- CARRY IT OUT,
BUT IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT IS
00:54:51HAPPENING IN WASHINGTON, DO WE
WANT TO BE LIKE THEM?
00:54:54THEY CANNOT GET OUT OF THEIR OWN
WAY.
00:54:56THE COUNTRY IS LOSING FAITH.
TOGETHER WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE
00:55:01MOVE FORWARD, AND THAT WE CAN
FIND THINGS THAT WE CAN WORK
00:55:05TOGETHER ON, AND NOT THE NASTY
AND MEAN AND NAMED CALLERS.
00:55:10A FIGHT LIKE CRAZY.
TIP O'NEILL AND RONALD REAGAN
00:55:12DID, AND THEN THEY HAD A DRINK.
TIP HAD TO.
00:55:18[LAUGHTER]
BUT WHEN I LOVE POLITICS, I LEFT
00:55:22ON THE FIELD.
I HAD TO, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.
00:55:25NOW WE HAVE TO BUILD ON WHAT WE
CAN ACCOMPLISH.
00:55:28THE MAIN JOB IS ALL ABOUT JOBS.
WHEN PEOPLE HAVE JOBS, MOBS AND
00:55:35DADS ARE STRONG, KIDS GET OUT OF
POVERTY, FAMILIES ARE TOGETHER,
00:55:38MARRIAGES LAST.
YOU DO NOT ACHIEVE THIS BY JUST
00:55:43SNAPPING YOUR FINGERS.
THESE JOBS DO NOT COME HERE ON
00:55:46ACCIDENT.
IT DOES NOT HAPPEN THAT WAY.
00:55:48WE HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THE
STRATEGIC WAY WE CAN WORK
00:55:51TOGETHER.
WE CAN LEVERAGE OUR ASSETS AND
00:55:54THE STRINGS THAT WE HAVE.
I KNOW THE IDEA OF A LEGISLATOR
00:55:58IS THAT YOU HAVE TO GO TO
COLUMBUS AND VOTE.
00:56:01ROSENBERGER IS A PERFECT
EXAMPLE OF A GUY WHO VOTES AS AN
00:56:05AFTERTHOUGHT.
HIS JOB IS TO WORK WITH EVERY
00:56:08BUSINESS IN HIS DISTRICT AND
BRING HOPE TO THE PEOPLE OF
00:56:11WILMINGTON.
I DO NOT CARE WHO YOU ARE IN
00:56:15THIS LEGISLATURE.
I DO NOT CARE WHO YOU ARE IN
00:56:17THIS CROWD.
IF YOU HAVE AN IDEA THAT YOU
00:56:19THINK CAN HELP CREATE JOBS AND
ADVANCE OUR SOCIETY AND OUR
00:56:24STATE, TELL US.
DO NOT BE SHY.
00:56:27I DO NOT BUY.
MOST OF THE TIME.
00:56:29-- I DO NOT BITE, MOST OF THE
TIME.
00:56:35EVERY ONE OF THESE PROJECTS
TAKES TIME, AND WE HAVE TO WORK
00:56:41IT OUT.
IT CANNOT BE DONE OVERNIGHT, BUT
00:56:44WE ALSO CANNOT BGIVE AWAY
THE STORE.
00:56:50BE CAREFUL NOT TO GIVE AWAY THE
STORE.
00:56:52WE HAVE CLUSTERS THAT WE THINK
WILL WORK.
00:56:54RATHER THAN GIVE YOU A LAUNDRY
LIST OF ALL OF THESE LEGISLATIVE
00:56:58THINGS, I WANT TO TALK TO YOU
ABOUT WHAT I THINK IS REALISTIC,
00:57:01NOT WHAT IS BLUE SKY.
AND FROM WHAT OHIO CAN TAKE HOLD
00:57:06AND WHAT WE CAN BUILD UPON.
LET'S START WITH MANUFACTURING.
00:57:10MOMS AND DADS, STOP TELLING YOUR
KIDS THEY SHOULD NOT TRY TO GET
00:57:14A JOB IN MANUFACTURING.
MANUFACTURING IS COMING BACK.
00:57:17ENCOURAGE YOUR PEOPLE.
IF GOD MAKE THEM -- IF GOD MADE
00:57:23THEM TO MAKE THINGS, LET THEM
MAKE THINGS.
00:57:26[APPLAUSE]
IT IS COMING BACK BECAUSE OF OUR
00:57:30WORK FORCE, OUR LOCATION, OUR
ABILITY TO MOVE THINGS.
00:57:33IT IS COMING BACK TO OHIO.
BUT LET ME TELL YOU, WHEN
00:57:38MICHAELS, UNCLE GEORGE, STEVE,
AND ANDY WORKED IN A STEEL MILL
00:57:45AND HAD TO PUSH, IS THE BRAIN
INCREASING NOW.
00:57:49YOU CANNOT WORK ON A STEEL MILL
IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO WORK
00:57:53ON A COMPUTER.
TECHNOLOGY IS THE THING OF THE
00:57:57DAY IN MANUFACTURING.
LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT SOME OF
00:58:00THE THINGS THAT HAPPENED IN THE
STATE THAT ARE GOOD.
00:58:02I TALK ABOUT AUTOS TO START,
BECAUSE OHIO DOES HAVE A BASE
00:58:07INDUSTRY IN AUTO.
THE QUESTION ABOUT IT.
00:58:09-- NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.
I WENT OUT TO DETROIT A YEAR AGO
00:58:16AND THEY WERE SHAKING THEIR
FINGER AT ME.
00:58:18YOU ARE NOT GETTING IT RIGHT IN
OHIO -- SHAKING THEIR FINGER.
00:58:23THEY SHOOK THEIR FINGER AT ME
THIS YEAR AND SAID, YOU ARE
00:58:27GETTING IT RIGHT IN OHIO.
WHEN GENERAL MOTORS PUTS OUT A
00:58:32LETTER, THEY DO NOT PUT OUT A
LETTER PRAISING THEIR OWN MOM,
00:58:36LET ALONE SOME GOVERNMENT,
SAYING THINGS WERE GETTING
00:58:39BETTER.
FORD IS INVESTING IN THE STATE
00:58:42OF OHIO.
WAS IT A GREAT DAY WHEN WE WERE
00:58:45AT AVON LAKE?
[APPLAUSE]
00:58:46THOSE PEOPLE WERE SO HAPPY.
FORD IS GOING TO INVEST $5
00:58:53BILLION OR $6 BILLION.
MICHIGAN IS NUMBER ONE, TO BE
00:58:57EXPECTED.
WE ARE NUMBER TWO IN AMERICA.
00:58:58$1 BILLION.
AND THEY MOVED A BUNCH OF
00:59:04BUSINESS FROM MEXICO TO AVON
LAKE.
00:59:06FROM MEXICO TO AVON LAKE.
GET IT?
00:59:09[APPLAUSE]
I'M WRITING AN OP-ED PIECE WITH
00:59:20THE CEO OF GENERAL MOTORS
TALKING ABOUT OHIO AND
00:59:25MANUFACTURING IN AMERICA.
THEY HAVE A CONTINUED COMMITMENT
00:59:27TO TOLEDO, AND OF COURSE,
GEORGETOWN.
00:59:31IT IS SELLING AND IT IS WORKING.
CHRYSLER, HALF A BILLION DOLLAR
00:59:36IN INVESTMENT IN TOLEDO.
WHEN THEY DO SOMETHING GOOD, YOU
00:59:45PUSH THEM FOR MORE.
THAT IS THE WAY IT HAS TO BE.
00:59:48AND WE'RE WORKING WITH THEM NOW
TO TRAIN PEOPLE.
00:59:50THE UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO IS
GOING TO DO WORK FORCE TRAINING
00:59:53BECAUSE WHEN YOU ARE ABLE TO GET
STICKY WITH THEM, THEY CANNOT
00:59:57GET OUT OF YOUR GRASP.
WE WANT TO GRAB THEM AND HOLD
01:00:00THEM AND BUILD WHAT WE HAVE.
AND NOT GO THROUGH A BREATH
01:00:04HOLDING EXERCISED DOWN THE ROAD.
AND HONDA, I HAD A VISION LAST
01:00:10NIGHT -- BACK IN A SUPER CAR --
BATCH IN A SUPER CAR BUDISH NEXT
01:00:25TO HIM, AND JERRY SEINFELD IN
THE BACK SEAT.
01:00:28[LAUGHTER]
WE'RE GOING TO HELP THEM TRAIN
01:00:34THEIR WORKERS.
IT IS FANTASTIC.
01:00:35LET ME ALSO SAY, -- IS JAIME
HEAR FROM REPUBLICS DEAL?
01:00:47HIS FAMILY ARE BIG ORANGE BUT
YOURS IN MEXICO IN STEEL.
01:00:51THEY HAVE MADE A HUGE INVESTMENT
IN LORAIN, OHIO.
01:00:56WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT
WOULD CREATE MORE JOBS IN
01:01:00REPUBLIC STEEL IN LORAIN, OHIO
THIS YEAR?
01:01:03IT IS A MEXICAN FAMILY MAKING AN
INVESTMENT IN THE STATE OF OHIO.
01:01:07IT IS PHENOMENAL.
[APPLAUSE]
01:01:08DEANNE THEM -- B &M STAR STEEL
MANUFACTURING IN YOUNGSTOWN.
01:01:22DON'T FORGET THE HUGE
INVESTMENTS FROM THE UNITED
01:01:30STATES STEEL PRODUCTS THERE TO
THAT PLAN OF REPUBLIC STEEL.
01:01:34THEY BELIEVE IN OHIO.
LISTEN TO THIS, FOLKS.
01:01:39THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN
YOUNGSTOWN HAS GONE FROM 11.5%
01:01:44TO 8.3% IN THE LAST YEAR.
THE MAHONEY VALLEY IS ALIVE
01:01:48AGAIN, AND THEY DESERVE IT.
[APPLAUSE]
01:01:50HAMILTON, OHIO, THEY WERE GOING
TO MOVE THEIR SHOCK ABSORBERS TO
01:01:59MEXICO.
NOT ONLY ARE THEY NOT MOVING
01:02:02THEM BECAUSE WE GOT DOWN THERE
AND WORKED WITH THEM, BUT THEY
01:02:06ARE MOVING PEOPLE FROM MEXICO TO
HAMILTON, OHIO TO MAKE SHOCK
01:02:10ABSORBERS.
JOHNSON CONTROL NEAR TOLEDO, A
01:02:14WHOLE NEW GENERATION OF BATTERY
MAKING.
01:02:16SOMETHING WE CAN PUT IN OUR
CARS AND IT IS GOOD FOR OUR
01:02:20ENVIRONMENT, SOMETHING WE CAN
PUT IN OUR CARS THAT WILL BRING
01:02:23ABOUT A GENERATIONAL CHANGE IN
THE WAY WE POWER OUR CARS, RIGHT
01:02:29UP THERE IN TOLEDO, OHIO.
AND WHIRLPOOL IS MOVING A BUNCH
01:02:34OF THEIR STOCK FROM GERMANY TO
OHIO.
01:02:37YOU KNOW WHY?
MARKET, LOCATION, WORKERS, IT
01:02:40ALL FITS TOGETHER, DOESN'T IT,
WHEN YOU ARE ON THE BALL AND
01:02:43WORKING TOGETHER WITH THESE
COMPANIES.
01:02:46[APPLAUSE]
AND LET'S NOT FORGET THE SAME
01:02:52CAN COMPANY.
THEY ALREADY MADE A COUPLE
01:02:54HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR
INVESTMENT IN OHIO AND THEY ARE
01:02:57ON THE VERGE OF ANOTHER $225
MILLION INVESTMENT IN A JUMBO
01:03:02REFINER AND STEEL PLANT.
WE COULD NEVER FORGET SIMKIN.
01:03:12THEY'RE THE BACKBONE OF OUR
STATE.
01:03:18REMEMBER, WE HAVE LEGACY, AND
SECOND, WE HAVE LOCATION.
01:03:23EVERY COMPANY THINKS ABOUT COST.
THAT IS WHAT WE DO WHEN WE WORK
01:03:27WITH THEM.
I TALK TO CO'S UNTIL THE SUN
01:03:30GOES DOWN.
THE LABOR COSTS HAVE RISEN IN
01:03:34CHINA.
THE LABOR COSTS IN MEXICO
01:03:39HAVE RISEN, AND UNFORTUNATELY,
THE VIOLENCE CREATES SERIOUS
01:03:43RISK.
I KNOW WHAT WE HAVE IN OHIO?
01:03:45WE'RE CLOSE TO THE MARKETS.
WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF DEVISING
01:03:49A STRATEGY WHERE WE CAN HAVE A
LOT OF FOREIGN TRADE EFFORTS,
01:03:54AND THAT IS FOREIGN TRADE TO
PLACES LIKE CALIFORNIA, THE
01:03:57STATE OF WASHINGTON, AND MAYBE
WE CAN EVEN LOOK OVERSEAS.
01:04:00HERE'S THE THING, COSTS, ACCESS
TO THE MARKET, THE ABILITY TO
01:04:06MOVE THINGS, THE ABILITY TO MAKE
THINGS -- ALL IN COST, WE ARE
01:04:11STARTING TO WIN.
WE HAVE GOT TO PICK OFF THE
01:04:15COMPANY'S ONE BY ONE TO BRING
THESE MANUFACTURING JOBS TO THE
01:04:18STATE.
AND IT IS WORTH MENTIONING,
01:04:23MEXICO TO AVON LAKE, MEXICO TO
REPUBLIC STEEL, GERMANY TO
01:04:27WHIRLPOOL IN CLYNE, OHIO.
FIGHTS IN CROP -- THEISSEN
01:04:37KRUPP.
YOU MUST PROMOTE YOUR ENERGY
01:04:41COSTS AND WE GOT TO PROMOTE OUR
STRENGTHS IN ADVANCE
01:04:45MANUFACTURING.
AEROSPACE, HOW DID WE GO ALL OF
01:04:47THESE YEARS WITHOUT RECOGNIZING
THE SHEER BRILLIANCE AND
01:04:51EXCELLENCE OF WRIGHT-PATTERSON
AIR FORCE BASE?
01:04:52DID YOU KNOW WE ARE FLYING IN A
VERY LIMITED WAY UNMANNED
01:04:57VEHICLES DOWN THERE?
DID YOU KNOW UNMANNED VEHICLES
01:05:00ARE THE FUTURE OF AEROSPACE?
AND RIGHT NEAR BAT -- NEAR
01:05:05WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE
THEY HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY.
01:05:08THEY JUST DO NOT HAVE AN
ALTOGETHER.
01:05:11MY BRILLIANT FRIEND AND POLICY
DIRECTOR, HE IS WORKING -- I AM
01:05:15HELPING HIM -- TO GET THE FAA TO
GIVE US A WATER OPPORTUNITY TO
01:05:19GET THESE UNMANNED VEHICLES --
GIVE US A WIDER OPPORTUNITY TO
01:05:24GET THE UNMANNED VEHICLES.
I CANNOT COUNT ON WASHINGTON FOR
01:05:32ANYTHING.
YOU KNOW THAT.
01:05:33IT IS LIKE WAITING FOR GOODELL.
-- WAITING FOR GODOT.
01:05:40WE ARE WORKING WITH THE
PENTAGON, ALONG WITH GENERAL
01:05:46ASHY HEARST TO GET THIS THING
DONE.
01:05:47FOLKS, LOGISTICS.
IF YOU MAKE THINGS AND CANNOT
01:05:53MOVE IT, YOU MIGHT AS WELL NOT
EVEN MAKE IT.
01:05:56WE NEED TO BE THE BEST --
LOGISTICS IS BECOMING AN
01:06:00INDUSTRY IN THE STATE OF OHIO
NOW.
01:06:02IT IS AN INDUSTRY IN AMERICA.
IT IS THE ABILITY TO MOVE
01:06:06THINGS, AND MOVE THEM QUICKLY,
BY LAND, SEA, AND AIR.
01:06:09AND WE ARE STARTING TO WIN AT
THIS.
01:06:14IT WAS NOT LONG AGO, SENATOR
WAGONER, WHEN WE WENT UP TO NO.
01:06:18BALTIMORE -- HE WAS NOT EVEN
SWORN IN YET -- AND WE HELPED
01:06:22IMPROVE THEIR INFRASTRUCTURE.
JERRY RHEY GOT SOME MONEY SO WE
01:06:25COULD EXPAND THE INFRASTRUCTURE.
NO. BALTIMORE IS EXPLODING.
01:06:34PEOPLE CAN COME TO NORTH
BALTIMORE, OHIO, AND THAT
01:06:40FACILITY WILL BE EXPANDED AND IT
REPRESENTS THE BEST LOGISTICS.
01:06:45WE NEED TO EXPAND THAT
OPERATION.
01:06:47I KNOW CHRYSLER WOULD LIKE TO
SHIP MORE THINGS TO OUR MULTI-
01:06:51MODAL.
AND IT MEANS JOBS.
01:06:54SINKLER COUNTY, 1000 PEOPLE
WORKING DOWN THERE, YOUNG
01:06:57PEOPLE.
THEY HAVE NO TRUCKS.
01:07:02THEY TAKE VIRTUAL TRUCKS AND
MATCH THEM WITH A LOAD AND SHIP
01:07:06THINGS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.
1000 PEOPLE DOWN THERE.
01:07:09THE AVERAGE PAY IS LIKE $70,000.
IT WAS LIKE GOING TO GOOGLE OR
01:07:14PAY PAUL, WERE THE PLACE WHERE
YOU BUY ALL OF THE ISSUES --
01:07:19THE SHOES.
IT IS YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE
01:07:25EXCITED.
AND IN TOLEDO, WE LOST SOME
01:07:30JOBS AND TURN AROUND AND
CREATED 550 NEW ONES.
01:07:32BUT WE HAVE TO DO A BETTER JOB
WITH OUR INFRASTRUCTURE.
01:07:35LET ME JUST SAY SOMETHING TO
YOU.
01:07:41WE DID NOT TAKE YOUR HIGHWAY
MONEY.
01:07:42I DO NOT WANT TO BE MISLEADING
PEOPLE ANYMORE.
01:07:46YOU WANT A ROAD, AND WE WILL
GIVE YOU A ROW -- AND IT IS JUST
01:07:53NOT TRUE.
WE ARE $1.6 BILLION TO $2
01:08:00BILLION SHORT.
WE NEED TO TELL THE TRUTH TO
01:08:08PEOPLE SO THEY CAN UNDERSTAND A
SITUATION WE ARE IN.
01:08:10I HAVE NOT MADE A DECISION YET
ABOUT WHAT I WANT TO DO WITH
01:08:14THIS TURNPIKE.
BECAUSE IF WE DO NOT GET THE
01:08:16MONEY, WE ARE NOT GOING TO DO
IT.
01:08:18WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF
STUDYING IT.
01:08:22MAYBE WE CAN HAVE MORE PUBLIC-
PRIVATE OPERATIONS, AND WE GOT
01:08:26THAT IN THE TRANSPORTATION BILL.
WE HAVE THIS BRIDGE DOWN IN
01:08:29CINCINNATI AND WE OUGHT TO BE
INVOLVING THE PRIVATE SECTOR AND
01:08:32LET THEM SEE THE ADVANTAGE OF
BEING ENGAGED, LET THEM PROFIT
01:08:36SOMEWHAT FROM IT.
LET'S GET THIS INFRASTRUCTURE
01:08:38DUYN.
YOU CANNOT SHUT DOWN THAT
01:08:40BRIDGE.
IT IS A MAJOR ARTERY IN THIS
01:08:43COUNTRY.
MAYBE WE CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO
01:08:46GET A FEW PENNIES TO GET THERE
BY LETTING COMPANIES START TO
01:08:50LEAST SOME OF THESE REST STOPS
WHERE WE CAN GET SOME GOOD FOOD
01:08:54-- START TO LEAST SOME OF THESE
REST STOPS WHERE WE CAN GET SOME
01:08:58GOOD FOOD AND OTHER THINGS.
JUST THINK ABOUT THIS FOR A
01:09:04SECOND.
WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP UNDERLYING
01:09:06CONTROL OF THE TURNPIKE.
BUT IF WE CAN BOND AGAINST THAT
01:09:11REVENUE, OR IF WE CAN LEASE ITS
AND TAKE CARE OF THE
01:09:17MAINTENANCE, AND MAKE SURE THAT
THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE, WHO
01:09:20HAVE LARGELY BEEN IGNORED OVER
THE LAST 40 YEARS -- THE PEOPLE
01:09:26WHO LIVE THERE, GET RESPONSIVE
AGREEMENTS FROM THOSE WHO MIGHT
01:09:30TAKE THIS TURNPIKE OVER, AND IF
WE CAN GENERATE BILLIONS OF
01:09:35DOLLARS, OR DO WE NOT WANT TO DO
THAT?
01:09:37YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.
EVERYBODY SLOWDOWN A LITTLE
01:09:42CAMACHO OUT.
LET'S SEE WHERE WE ARE.
01:09:44-- SLOW DOWN A LITTLE, CHILL
OUT.
01:09:49LET'S SEE WHERE WE ARE.
WE HAVE TO MAKE IT WORK.
01:09:52[APPLAUSE]
WE DID MANUFACTURING, LOGISTICS.
01:10:03LET'S TRY MEDICINE FOR A WHILE.
CLEVELAND CLINIC UNIVERSITY
01:10:07HOSPITAL.
CASE WESTERN, ARE YOU KIDDING
01:10:13ME?
THE CROWN JEWELS.
01:10:15GORDON AT OHIO STATE, A NEW
HOSPITAL.
01:10:21BY THE WAY, HE HAS A GUY WORKING
UP THERE BY THE NAME OF DR.
01:10:26RAZAI.
THIS GUY IS DOING DEEP BRAIN
01:10:31MASSAGE.
I WENT OUT THERE AND THERE WAS A
01:10:36MAN -- WHAT HE DOES IS PUTS A
SENSOR IN PUT IN THE BRAIN AND A
01:10:42PACEMAKER IN THE SHOULDER.
IT SENDS A SIGNAL TO DISRUPT THE
01:10:47BAD SIGNALS THAT CAUSE
PARKINSON'S IN PEOPLE.
01:10:49THERE WAS A MAN -- A SHOT OFF
THE PACEMAKER.
01:10:54THEY PUT IT BACK ON -- THEY SHOT
OFF THE PACEMAKER.
01:10:59THEY PUT IT BACK ON.
HE GAVE ME A CARVED PIECE OF
01:11:02WOOD.
IT WAS LIKE MASSI -- LIKE MAGIC.
01:11:07JOHN GLENN WAS WITH US THE OTHER
DAY IN A CABINET MEETING.
01:11:11IT IS INCREDIBLE IF WE CAN
ENCOURAGE THAT AND THEN
01:11:15COMMERCIALIZE IT AS WELL.
YOU THINK OF THE UNIVERSITY OF
01:11:17CINCINNATI, PERFORMANCE MEDICINE
IN DAYTON, OUR CHILDREN'S
01:11:21HOSPITALS, THE BEST STUFF IN THE
WORLD.
01:11:23THINK ABOUT THIS, PHILLIPS, THE
GREAT MEDICAL COMPANY, MOVED
01:11:29THEIR IMAGING R.N. DE FROM SAN
JOSE, CALIF., TO CLEVELAND.
01:11:33THAT IS BETTER THAN THE SUPER
BOWL FOR THE CLEVELAND BROWNS.
01:11:37THAT IS A FANTASTIC THING.
[APPLAUSE]
01:11:38WELL, MAYBE NOT BETTER THAN A
SUPER BOWL, BUT IT EQUATES TO A
01:11:48SUPERBOWL, OK?
[LAUGHTER]
01:11:49ALSO, AS TERSTE4ARIS, A COMPANYT
WE WORKED TO CREATE, THEY ARE
01:12:02MOVING DOWN FROM CANADA.
WE WANT THESE COMPANIES TO WORK
01:12:05TOGETHER, BECAUSE OF THEIR WORK
TOGETHER WE CAN HAVE CLINICAL
01:12:08TRIAL.
THEY CAN GO OUT THERE AND PUSH
01:12:13THESE DEVICES.
THEY ALL THINK THEY ARE MICHAEL
01:12:15JORDAN.
IF WE CAN GET THEM TO WORK
01:12:17TOGETHER, WE CAN HAVE AN AWESOME
RESULT IN ALL FIELDS OF MEDICINE
01:12:22TODAY, AND GREEN -- BRING
TREMENDOUS ADVANCEMENT TO US.
01:12:27DIVIDED WE FALL, WORKING
TOGETHER WE WIN.
01:12:29FINANCIAL SERVICES, NO. 2 IN THE
COUNTRY IN FINANCIAL PROPERTY.
01:12:36WE GOT THE NO. 2 IN THE COUNTRY
IN OHIO.
01:12:43WE THEY WANT TO CHANGE THE FACE
OF OHIO.
01:12:48AND OUR COMMUNITY BANKS AND PNC.
WE'RE ALSO CREATING COURSES TO
01:12:56TRAIN KIDS IN COLLEGE IN THESE
COURSES.
01:13:02WE ARE CARRYING THIS OUT AND
WORKING WITH UNIVERSITIES AND
01:13:06COMMUNITY COLLEGES TO GET IT
DONE.
01:13:09AGRICULTURE, IT IS OUR BASE.
WE'RE ON THE CUSP OF BECOMING A
01:13:13WORLDWIDE LEADER OF EXPORTING
ANIMALS.
01:13:15WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT WE
COULD SAY THAT WE ARE EXPORTING
01:13:20NON BLUE-TONK CGUED COWS TO TUR?
BUT WE CAN SHIP THIS ALL OVER
01:13:33THE WORLD.
LET'S STOP TREATING AGRICULTURE
01:13:38AS A STEPCHILD.
IT IS THE BASE AND FOUNDATION OF
01:13:41OUR STATE, AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN.
[APPLAUSE]
01:13:43TECHNOLOGY, I MEAN, JENN NOVA, A
CLOUD COMPUTING IN NEW ALBANY,
01:13:55BUSINESS WEEKLY SAYS CLEVELAND
IS THE FASTEST-GROWING MARKET
01:13:58FOR TECHNOLOGY JOBS IN AMERICA.
WE CAN BEGIN TO COMPETE WITH
01:14:03SILICON VALLEY, THE TRIANGLE IN
NORTH CAROLINA, AND WITH AUSTIN.
01:14:07WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT KNOW WHAT
THEY'RE DOING.
01:14:09WE JUST HAVE TO CREATE THE
CLIMATE HERE SO THAT PEOPLE ARE
01:14:13EXCITED ABOUT BEING IN OHIO.
TODAY, I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT
01:14:19THE BEST TECHNOLOGY RESOURCE YOU
HAVE NEVER HEARD OF, AND IS
01:14:23BURIED UNDERGROUND IN OHIO.
LET ME TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED.
01:14:27THERE IS THIS GUY.
HIS NAME IS AL STOTZ.
01:14:33HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF HIM?
HE OUGHT TO GET ONE OF THESE
01:14:38AWARDS.
HE IS A REGULAR GUY WORKING IN
01:14:41THE GOVERNMENT, AND HE FIGURED
OUT YEARS AGO THAT WHEN THE
01:14:46TELECOM KOGAN -- TELECOM
COMPANIES WERE IN THE
01:14:52CRATER, WE OUGHT TO BUY ALL OF
THIS CHEAP FRYEBURG.
01:14:55IT IS BEYOND -- THIS CHEAP
FIBEROPTICS.
01:15:00IT IS BEYOND WHAT WE'RE DOING
NOW.
01:15:07THAT IS THE FUTURE.
IT REALLY MEAN SOMETHING.
01:15:15IT MEANS THAT HEALTH CARE AND
RESEARCH, THESEV9
01:15:19LONGER HAVE TO RELY ON OVERNIGHT
MAIL TO SHARE THEIR MASSIVE HARD
01:15:25DRIVES.
IT ALLOWS HOSPITALS AND
01:15:27UNIVERSITIES TO COMPETE MORE
SUCCESSFULLY FOR GRANTS AND
01:15:32PREDATORS IN JOBS.
IT MEANS THE COMPANY IN THE
01:15:34ENTERTAINMENT, DESIGN AND
GRAPHICS INDUSTRY THAT MUST
01:15:38DELIVER HUGE AMOUNTS OF DATA TO
CUSTOMERS AND COLLABORATORS,
01:15:43THEY CAN BE RIGHT HERE IN OHIO.
COMPANIES THAT NEED FILES BACKED
01:15:49UP FOR SECURITY, THEY WILL HAVE
A PLACE HERE IN OHIO.
01:15:54YOU DID IN 1987.
IT IS EXPLODING IN POWER AND IT
01:15:58WILL YIELD THE HUGE BENEFITS FOR
THE PEOPLE OF OHIO.
01:16:02ORNET, YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST.
IT CAN CHANGE THE FACE OF OHIO.
01:16:10I WOULD LIKE TO THANK AL STOTZ
IN THE LEGISLATURE FOR HAVING
01:16:18THE FORESIGHT TO DO THAT.
[APPLAUSE]
01:16:19THERE HAPPEN TO BE SOME GOOD
ENERGY THINGS GOING ON.
01:16:24WE HAD AN ENERGY SUMMIT.
MANY OF YOU CAME TO IT, TWO DAYS
01:16:28LONG.
EXPERTS FROM ALL OVER AMERICA.
01:16:30IF AMERICA CANNOT HAVE A POLICY
THAT MAKES AS ENERGY
01:16:38INDEPENDENT, THEN LET'S OHIO
CREATE AN ENERGY POLICY THAT
01:16:42MAKES US ENERGY INDEPENDENT.
[APPLAUSE]
01:16:44WE WILL START WITH COAL.
WE ARE THE SAUDI ARABIA OF COAL.
01:16:52CLEAN EDGES AND BURN IT.
USE IT.
01:16:56-- CLEAN IT AND BURN IT.
USE IT.
01:17:01[APPLAUSE]
RENEWABLE, YOU CAN BEFORE GAS,
01:17:06WIND, SOLAR, GEOTHERMAL -- WE
NEED TO BE FOR OUR RENEWABLE
01:17:11SPIRIT THEY ARE STARTING TO GAIN
MOMENTUM -- FOR OUR RENEWABLES.
01:17:17THEY'RE STARTING TO GAIN
MOMENTUM.
01:17:19BUT LET'S NOT STAFF THINGS IN
THAT WILL DRIVE UP THE COST FOR
01:17:22PEOPLE.
BUT WE NEED TO EMBRACE
01:17:25RENEWABLES IN OUR STATE.
BUT THERE ARE THINGS WE CAN DO,
01:17:29LIKE CAPTURE WASTE HEAT.
YOU KNOW WHEN YOU DROVE DOWN
01:17:33HERE, DID YOU SEE THE BIG
COOLING TOWER?
01:17:35HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO CAPTURE
THAT AND PUT IT BACK INTO THE
01:17:38COMPANY, SO THEY CAN LOWER COST,
GENERATE POWER, AND AT THE SAME
01:17:43TIME GENERATE CLEAN ENERGY FOR
THE ENVIRONMENT?
01:17:48WE WILL HAVE A WAY TO DO THAT IN
THE STATE OF OHIO.
01:17:51CONSERVATION, WE ALL HAVE TO DO
IT.
01:17:54LET ME TELL YOU THIS, THOUGH.
NATURAL GAS, FRAGGKKING, PEOPLE
01:18:07ARE GETTING IT IN THIS STATE.
WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS
01:18:10SINCE BIFFAR WAS SWORN IN.
YOU CANNOT DEGRADE THE
01:18:13ENVIRONMENT AT THE SAME TIME YOU
ARE PRODUCING IN THIS INDUSTRY.
01:18:18IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
AND IT IS NOT A FALSE CHOICE.
01:18:21THE BIGGEST COMPANIES KNOW THAT
YOU NEED TO HAVE TOUGH
01:18:24ENVIRONMENTAL RULES.
THEY CANNOT BE COMPLICATED OR
01:18:27OVER THE TOP, BUT WE NEED TO
HAVE THEM.
01:18:29WE CANNOT HAVE SOME YAHOO! COME
INTO THE STATE AND DAMAGE THE
01:18:32INDUSTRY BECAUSE THEY ARE
IRRESPONSIBLE.
01:18:35THE BIGGEST COMPANIES UNDERSTAND
THAT WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF
01:18:38THINGS LIKE HIGH PRESSURE PIPE
LINES.
01:18:41WE DO NOT WANT A HIGH-PRESSURE
PIPELINE EXPLOSION IN THIS
01:18:45STATE.
WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THE GAS
01:18:47LINES.
WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE
01:18:49WELLHEAD IS NOT GOING TO
CONTRIBUTE TO THE CONTAMINATION
01:18:52OF THE GROUND WATER.
WE HAVE TO DO ALL OF THESE
01:18:54THINGS, BUT WE CANNOT LET OUR
FEARS OUTWEIGH THE POTENTIAL.
01:18:58AND I'M ALWAYS CONCERNED ABOUT
TALKING ABOUT THE POTENTIAL,
01:19:03BECAUSE THE PEOPLE IN THE
MOHANNA VALLEY, THE PEOPLE IN
01:19:06STEUBENVILLE, THE PEOPLE IN
SOUTHERN OHIO, HOW MANY PROMISES
01:19:10HAVE THEY HEARD THAT HAVE ONLY
BEEN SHATTERED?
01:19:12LET'S TAKE OUR TIME.
WE HAVE ONLY 36 WELLS DRILLED,
01:19:18BUT IT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD.
BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF
01:19:22INVESTMENT IN THIS STATE, AND
THAT IS ALL GOOD AS WELL.
01:19:25WE HAVE MUCH WORK TO DO.
EVERYBODY IS TALKING ABOUT A
01:19:30CRACKER FACILITY.
LET ME TELL YOU WHAT WE'VE GOT.
01:19:32WE HAVE A COMPANY CALLED MARK
WEST.
01:19:34IS FRANK TEMPLE IN YOUR TODAY?
FRANK, COME ON UP.
01:19:45[PEOPLE IN GALLERY YELLING]
I KIND OF ENJOY ALL OF THIS.
01:19:59THIS IS WHAT IT WAS LIKE WHEN I
WAS GROWING UP.
01:20:00[LAUGHTER]
[APPLAUSE]
01:20:04HEY, STEPHENVILLE, LET THEM KNOW
WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT DISRUPTION.
01:20:13TELL THEM WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT
IT.
01:20:17[APPLAUSE]
LET ME TELL YOU, LET ME TELL YOU
01:20:37ABOUT FRANK TEMPLE, WHO IS HERE
WITH US TODAY.
01:20:40HE IS THE CEO OF MARQUEST.
HE IS RELOCATING THREE
01:20:44FACILITIES IN OHIO.
TWO PROCESSING FACILITIES, AND
01:20:49THOSE ARE THE FACILITIES WE USED
TO MAKE THE GASES.
01:20:51AND HE IS USING A FRACTIONATOR
TO TAKE THE LIQUID FROM THE
01:20:58FRAGGING AND HE CAN'T SEPARATE
THEM INTO THE PROPANE AND THE
01:21:01ETHANE.
THIS IS REALLY EXCITING AND UP
01:21:07THE FOOD CHAIN.
HE IS INVESTING HALF A BILLION
01:21:11DOLLARS WORTH OF INVESTMENT
THREE FACILITIES IN THIS STATE.
01:21:14$7 BILLION TO START THE DARN
THING.
01:21:17AND AT THE SAME TIME, IT WILL
YIELD HUNDREDS OF PERMANENT
01:21:20JOBS, DIRECT AND INDIRECT GIVE
MR. SAMBOL A ROUND OF APPLAUSE.
01:21:26-- DIRECT AND INDIRECT.
GIVE MR. SEMPLE A ROUND OF A
01:21:38OF APPLAUSE.
[APPLAUSE]
01:21:42THANK YOU FOR COMING, FRANK.
OK, LET ME SAY -- LET ME TELL
01:21:53YOU COUPLE OTHER ESSENTIAL
THINGS THAT WE NEED TO DO IN OUR
01:21:57STATE.
FIRST, ON THE ENERGY PIECE OF
01:22:02THIS, ON THE ENERGY PIECE OF
THIS, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO
01:22:08WORK A LAMPE -- TOGETHER
COLLABORATIVE LEAD.
01:22:10AND WE HAVE BEEN.
DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS
01:22:13UNDERSTAND THE BIG PICTURE HERE.
LET ME TELL YOU A COUPLE OF
01:22:16THINGS WE NEED TO DO QUICKLY --
WORK-FORCE TRAINING.
01:22:19EVERYWHERE YOU GO, EVERYWHERE I
GO, WE HAVE A LOT OF TRAINING.
01:22:25WE HAVE A LOT OF JOB OPENINGS,
BUT WE DO NOT HAVE THE SKILLED
01:22:30WORKERS TO FILL IT.
[INDISTINCTIVE YELLING IN
01:22:40GALLERY]
WE DO NOT WANT YOU TO BE.
01:22:44[APPLAUSE]
WE HAVE 80,000 UNFILLED JOBS IN
01:22:50OHIO RIGHT NOW.
CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT?
01:22:52LET ME TELL YOU WHAT ELSE WE
HAVE.
01:22:56WE HAVE A WORK FORCE TRAINING
PROGRAM.
01:22:59SHAME ON US.
WE HAVE 77 DIFFERENT PROGRAMS
01:23:01LOCATED IN DIFFERENT 8 -- IN 13
DIFFERENT AGENCIES.
01:23:06THOSE 77 IN 13 ADD UP TO ZERO
BECAUSE THERE IS NO
01:23:10ACCOUNTABILITY WHATSOEVER WHEN
IT COMES TO OUR LIMITED
01:23:13ACCOUNTABILITY AS TO HOW THESE
PROGRAMS WORK.
01:23:15HERE'S WHAT WE NEED TO DO
QUICKLY.
01:23:17ONE -- AND WE NEED YOUR HELP ON
THIS -- COMPANIES NEED TO
01:23:21FORECAST.
THEY HAVE TO TELL US WHAT THEY
01:23:23NEED.
THEY COMPLAIN THEY DO NOT HAVE
01:23:25ANY WORKERS, BUT THEY WILL NOT
TELL US WHAT WORKERS THEY NEED.
01:23:29WE HAVE GOT TO THE BUSINESS
ROUNDTABLE, THE CHAMBER OF
01:23:31COMMERCE, AND WE ARE
AGGRESSIVELY -- AND WITH THE
01:23:35ENERGY COMPANY, I HAVE TOLD
THEM WE DO NOT WANT FOREIGNERS
01:23:38WORKING ON OUR WELLHEADS.
THOSE ARE PEOPLE FROM INDIANA,
01:23:44MICHIGAN AND INDIANA -- AND
IOWA.
01:23:48WE WANT OHIOANS WORKING ON THE
WELLHEAD.
01:23:52[APPLAUSE]
HOW MANY WELDERS YOU NEED?
01:23:56HOW MANY TECHNICIANS DO YOU
NEED?
01:23:59HOW MANY MOLDERS YOU NEED?
HOW MANY TRUCK DRIVERS DO YOU
01:24:02NEED?
HOW MANY COMPUTER EXPERTS OR
01:24:05ENGINEERS DO YOU NEED?
WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH ENGINEERS,
01:24:08SCIENTISTS, MATHEMATICIANS.
WE HAVE TO TELL KIDS AND POINT
01:24:11THEM TO WHERE THOSE JOBS ARE.
IT IS A MAJOR PROGRAM FOR US.
01:24:17SECONDLY, WE NEED OUR COMMUNITY
COLLEGES TO CONTINUE EDUCATING
01:24:20PEOPLE FOR THESE JOBS.
SOME OF THEM ARE DOING A PRETTY
01:24:23GOOD JOB.
SOME OF THEM ARE NOT DOING A
01:24:25VERY GOOD JOB.
WE'LL HAVE A 10% GRADUATION RATE
01:24:29FOR COMMUNITY -- WE ONLY HAVE A
10% GRADUATION RATE FOR
01:24:34COMMUNITY COLLEGES NATIONWIDE.
THEY SHOULD BE LIKE THE
01:24:36EMERGENCY VEHICLE THAT GET KIDS
AND ADULTS INTO THOSE JOBS THAT
01:24:42ARE AVAILABLE WE HAVE TO MATCH
THE KENNEDY COLLEGES WITH THE
01:24:47BUSINESS COMMUNITY FOR
FORECASTING.
01:24:49SOUND EASY?
TRY IT.
01:24:52WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR
SIX MONTHS.
01:24:54THIS IS A HUGE CULTURAL CHANGE.
AND OUR UNIVERSITIES, THEY HAVE
01:24:58TO DO A MUCH BETTER JOB OF
FOCUSING OUR KIDS ON THE
01:25:01REALISTIC JOB PROPOSITIONS.
I DO NOT NECESSARILY WANT TO GET
01:25:07INTO THE NEGATIVE, BUT SOME OF
OUR FOUR-YEAR GRADUATION RATES
01:25:17ARE JUST WRONG.
I WILL GIVE YOU ONE, AFTER FOUR
01:25:21YEARS, 4% GRADUATION RATE.
WE NEED TO GRADUATE KIDS,
01:25:28WHETHER IT IS A TECHNICAL
DEGREE, A COMMUNITY COLLEGE
01:25:30DEGREE, OR A UNIVERSITY DEGREE
BECAUSE THE MORE DEGREES THEY
01:25:33HAVE, THE MORE JOB SECURITY, THE
MORE INCOME, AND HEALTHIER THEY
01:25:37ARE AS A STATE.
WE NEED TO LET NOTHING STAND IN
01:25:41OUR WAY.
[APPLAUSE]
01:25:42OUR CAREER AND TECHNICAL SCHOOLS
ARE DOING A PRETTY GOOD JOB.
01:25:51THEY SERVE AS A MODEL.
THEY WORK CLOSELY WITH SOME OF
01:25:54THESE BUSINESSES.
I'M NOT SAYING THAT SOME OF
01:25:56THESE SCHOOLS ARE NOT DOING
GREAT, BUT IT HAS TO BE
01:25:59SEAMLESS, CONSISTENT, AND
ROBUST.
01:26:01AND IN ORDER TO KEEP TABS ON ALL
OF THIS, I WILL HAVE THIS THING
01:26:05CALLED THE WORK FORCE TRAINING
REFORM PLAN.
01:26:07IT SOUNDS LIKE ANOTHER -- I DO
NOT LIKE THESE NAMES.
01:26:12BUT HERE IS WHAT IS.
THIS GUY, RICH FREDERICK, THAT
01:26:17IS WORKING FOR ME, HE IS GOING
TO CHANGE THE WHOLE THING.
01:26:22COMMUNITY COLLEGES AND
TECHNICAL SCHOOLS, AND BY THE
01:26:28WAY, BRING A VOCATIONAL SCHOOL
BACK IN OUR K-12 EDUCATION.
01:26:32[APPLAUSE]
AND SORT OF LIKE PAUL BROWN USED
01:26:38TO SAY, RICH, IF YOU CANNOT GET
IT DONE, I WILL FIND SOMEBODY
01:26:41WHO CAN.
WE WILL GET THIS DONE, BUT WE
01:26:45NEED YOUR HELP, AND OUR DOOR IS
OPEN ON ANY CREATIVE IDEAS YOU
01:26:48HAVE.
HIGHER EDUCATION.
01:26:50WE HAVE A GREAT SYSTEM OF
UNIVERSITIES, BUT NOT A GREAT
01:26:54UNIVERSITY SYSTEM.
WE HAVE THE BEST HIGHER
01:26:57EDUCATION, I THINK, IN THE
WORLD.
01:26:59I HAVE ASK GORDON TO DO FOR FIVE
THINGS.
01:27:02WE WILL HAVE A CAPITAL BILL.
IN THE PAST, WE HAVE HAD THEM
01:27:08LOBBY FOR THEMSELVES.
NO MORE.
01:27:10GORDON IS GOING -- GOD BLESS
GORDON.
01:27:16THINK ABOUT THIS GUY.
HE IS THE UNIVERSITY OF
01:27:21COLORADO, OHIO STATE, BROWN, A
BETTER BILL, WEST VIRGINIA, BACK
01:27:25AT OHIO STATE.
-- VANDERBILT, WEST VIRGINIA,
01:27:30BACK AT OHIO STATE.
IT IS AN INCREDIBLE RESUME.
01:27:35I HAVE ASKED HIM TO GET THE
UNIVERSITY PRESIDENTS TOGETHER
01:27:39AND THEY ARE GOING TO COME WITH
A CAPITAL BILL FOR THE FIRST
01:27:41TIME IN OUR HISTORY THAT DOES
NOT HAVE UNIVERSITIES JUST GOING
01:27:46FOR THEMSELVES.
THEY ARE WORKING TOGETHER.
01:27:49IT IS A SEA CHANGE AND A
CULTURAL CHANGE.
01:27:51WE'RE ALSO ASKING GORDON TO
INCREASE GRADUATION RATES FOR
01:27:56ALL OF OUR UNIVERSITIES, NO
MORE 14%.
01:27:59IT HAS TO BE A TACKLE.
WE HAVE TO BE PATIENT.
01:28:03BUT WE HAVE TO DEMAND THAT IT
GETS DONE BECAUSE IT IS NOT FAIR
01:28:06TO OUR FAMILIES AND STUDENTS TO
NOT GET GRADUATED.
01:28:10THE EMPHASIS FOR NOT BE ON
ENROLLMENT, BUT ON GRADUATION.
01:28:13[APPLAUSE]
BUT WE ALSO SAY TO YOU, I HAVE
01:28:22TOLD GORDON UP AT AKRON STATE
THE GRADUATION PROGRAMS, HE
01:28:32SAID, I WANT ONE OF THOSE.
I SAID, YOU CANNOT HAVE ONE.
01:28:35WE WOULD DO NOT WANT DUPLICATIVE
PROGRAMS.
01:28:38WE WANT THEM COORDINATING
TOGETHER.
01:28:40AND IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO DO
RESEARCH IF YOU DO NOT
01:28:45COMMERCIALIZED AND CREATE JOBS.
WHAT IS THE POINT?
01:28:47COMMERCIALIZE, CREATE JOBS, SPIN
OFF COMPANIES.
01:28:52WE CAN CREATE JOBS, BUT IT WILL
TAKE RENEWED AND NEW FOCUS.
01:28:58WHETHER WE ARE WORKING TOGETHER
ON THE ISSUE OF FIXING THE
01:29:04BUILDINGS, OR WHETHER IT IS
TARGETING PEOPLE -- GETTING THE
01:29:09UNIVERSITY TO TARGET PEOPLE FOR
THE JOBS THAT EXIST, IF WE
01:29:12CREATE A UNIVERSITY SYSTEM, IT
WILL BE ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE.
01:29:15WE'RE ON THE VERGE OF BEING ABLE
TO DO IT.
01:29:18FINALLY, K-12.
67% OF OHIOANS THINK THE SYSTEM
01:29:26IS GREAT.
GRADUATION RATES IN OHIO, 80%
01:29:30STATEWIDE.
WHERE DO THE OTHER 20% GO?
01:29:32URBAN AREAS.
URBAN AREAS, A 65% GRADUATION
01:29:42RATE.
35% DO NOT GET OUT OF HIGH
01:29:45SCHOOL?
THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN OK BACK IN
01:29:47THE DAYS OF MY UNCLE GEORGE
WHERE YOU CAN GET A JOB IN A
01:29:50STEEL MILL, BUT IT DOES NOT WORK
LIKE THAT.
01:29:53A 35% DROPOUT RATE IN OUR URBAN
SCHOOLS?
01:29:5641% OF THE KIDS GRADUATING K-12
ARE TAKING REMEDIAL MATH AND
01:30:01ENGLISH WHEN THEY GET TO
COLLEGE.
01:30:05IT DRIVES UP THE COST OF
COLLEGE, AND THE KIDS THAT ARE
01:30:08SUPPOSED TO BE GOING TO COLLEGE,
GUESS WHAT, HE DROPS OUT AND HAS
01:30:16THAT.
THIS IS NOT SUSTAINABLE.
01:30:19AMERICA IS FALLING BEHIND AND A
HIGHLY STUCK IN THE MIDDLE.
01:30:23I HAVE TO SPEND SIX YEARS
BUILDING -- SPEND NEXT YEAR
01:30:28BUILDING A CONSENSUS.
I AM COUNTING ON CLEVELAND TO
01:30:34DELIVER THE GOODS.
I'M COUNTING ON CLEVELAND TO BE
01:30:37THEIR BEST ADVOCATE.
I WILL WORK WITH THEM.
01:30:40I WILL GO DOOR-TO-DOOR WITH
EVERY ONE OF THE OFFICES WITH
01:30:43THE MAYOR OF CLEVELAND.
IF THE MAYOR IS REALLY
01:30:47COMMITTED TO COMPREHENSIVE,
UNBELIEVABLE REFORM, AND WE CAN
01:30:52INVOLVE REPUBLICANS AND
DEMOCRATS IN THIS ENDEAVOR, WE
01:30:55CAN CHANGE URBAN EDUCATION IN
OHIO, AND CHANGE URBAN EDUCATION
01:30:59IN AMERICA.
THAT IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR AND
01:31:02RISKING FOR.
[APPLAUSE]
01:31:03FOLKS, HERE IS THE WAY I LOOK AT
THINGS.
01:31:12WE HAVE THE STUDY AT FREDERICK
DOUGLASS ACADEMY, A WELLS
01:31:17ACADEMY, THE FINE CHARTER
SCHOOLS IN CLEVELAND.
01:31:20WE NEED TO STUDY THEM AND FIND
OUT WHAT WORKS, BE DATED DRIVEN,
01:31:24AND DO IT.
AND IT DOES NOT MEAN WE
01:31:26SHORTCHANGE OUR TEACHERS.
IF THEY ARE NOT DOING WELL,
01:31:29LET'S HELP THEM.
IF THEY ARE DOING GREAT, LET'S
01:31:32PAY THEM.
LET'S CREATE A BEDROCK
01:31:41FOUNDATION FOR YOUNG CHILDREN.
THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT
01:31:44THAN THESE YOUNG TEACHERS, BUT
THEY HAVE TO BE OF EXCELLENCE,
01:31:48AND WE WILL HELP THEM.
IT IS THE WAY IT HAS TO BE.
01:31:51FOLKS, IF WE CAN TRAIN, EDUCATE,
FORECAST, USE OUR LOCATION, USE
01:31:55OUR GREAT PEOPLE, USE OUR
ASSETS, WE WILL BE NUMBER ONE IN
01:32:01AMERICA.
WE WILL BE THE MOST POWERFUL
01:32:03STATE IN AMERICA.
WE HAVE THIS GAYLE AND SIZE AND
01:32:07EVERYTHING WE NEED.
THE REASON WHY IT IS ALL ABOUT
01:32:12JOBS -- WE HAVE THE SCALE AND
SIZE AND EVERYTHING WE NEED.
01:32:16THE REASON IT IS ALL ABOUT JOBS
IS, THINK ABOUT GOING HOME.
01:32:20UGGLA GEORGE, YOU REMEMBER WHEN
YOU COME HOME AND THEY SAY --
01:32:24UNCLE GEORGE, YOU REMEMBER WHEN
YOU COME HOME AND THEY SAY, I
01:32:27LOST MY JOB TODAY.
THINK ABOUT WHEN YOU COME HOME
01:32:30AND THEY SAY, I GOT A JOB TODAY.
SUN, I GOT A JOB TODAY.
01:32:34MY WIFE AND I AND SOME OF THE
CAMPAIGN PEOPLE WENT TO THE
01:32:38WILMINGTON CAMPAIGN -- WHEN TO
WILMINGTON DURING THE CAMPAIGN.
01:32:43I CRIED.
I'M NOT AFRAID TO ADMIT IT.
01:32:477000 PEOPLE PLANE BY THE RULES,
AND ONE DAY IT IS ALL PULLED
01:32:54AWAY FROM THEM.
THEY PLAY BY THE RULES.
01:32:59THEY'RE HARD-WORKING.
THEY'RE GOD-FEARING.
01:33:02IT HAPPENS.
IT IS A SHAME.
01:33:04IT IS PART OF THE SORROW THAT WE
SEE IN THE WORLD.
01:33:07I THINK RACHEL RHEY EVEN WENT TO
THE FOOD PANTRY AND DID IT
01:33:16HARDER FOR SHOW THERE ON THE
TRAGEDY, AND THEY FOCUS ON
01:33:20WILMINGTON ALL THE TIME.
I WENT DOWN THERE THE OTHER DAY
01:33:23TO ANNOUNCE THE AIRPORT
TRANSPORT SERVICES.
01:33:31259 NEW JOBS.
AND THERE WERE GATHERED IN THE
01:33:35HANGAR THERE.
THE COMMISSIONERS, THE PREACHERS
01:33:44AND THE MAILMAN, THEY WERE ALL
THERE.
01:33:46AND THEY WERE WORKING IN THEIR
SHINY NEW UNIFORMS.
01:33:52THEY GOT TO GO HOME AND SAY,
SON, I GOT A JOB TODAY.
01:33:59IT IS GOING TO BE BETTER.
THAT IS WHAT IT IS ABOUT.
01:34:02LET NOTHING STAND IN THE WAY OF
BUILDING A PROSPEROUS OHIO, A
01:34:10RICHER OHIO, AN OHIO FREE OF
POVERTY AND WITH HOPE.
01:34:18WE WILL NEVER GET TO ALL OF
THAT, BUT THE CLOSER WE GET TO
01:34:22IT, THE BETTER OFF WE ARE.
IT IS SUCH AN EXCITING TIME FOR
01:34:26ALL OF US TO WORK TOGETHER TO DO
GOOD.
01:34:30GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY, AND GOD
BLESS OHIO.
01:34:33THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.
[APPLAUSE]
01:34:35AND BY THE WAY, AS I GET READY
TO LEAVE, I JUST WANTED THE
01:35:12SCHOOL TO KNOW, THE FLAG IS ALL
OF EUROPE -- THE FLAG IS ALL
01:35:15YOURS.
THANK YOU.
01:35:18GOD BLESS YOU.
