Issue 2: Pay, Perks And Hypocrisy
Kasich, Legislators Don’t Practice What They Preach
Columbus – Innovation Ohio, a progressive think tank headquartered in Columbus, today charged Gov. John Kasich and legislators who voted for Senate Bill 5 (Issue 2 on the November ballot) with “gross hypocrisy.” IO says that the Governor and his allies have not only exempted themselves from many of the sacrifices they are demanding of other public employees, but also enjoy salaries, perks and privileges that far exceed those available to regular working Ohioans.
