In response to Gov. Kasich’s year-in-review speech given to members of the business community today, House Democratic Leader Tracy Maxwell Heard (D-Columbus) released the following statement:

“Cuts to communities and tax breaks that favor the rich have hurt the middle class and stymied Ohio's economic recovery. Ohio is one of the worst states in the country for job creation over the last 12 months and our unemployment is now higher than the national rate. Instead of favoring special friends and special interests, we need to start putting working and middle class families first."
