Governor John Kasich

Ohio's governor-elect has put more school calamity days on his agenda, after some lobbying that started at home.

Republican John Kasich says his 10-year-old daughter Reese brought up the issue, and he also has heard complaints from other children and parents about the cutback to three calamity days last year. Democratic Governor Ted Strickland reduced the "snow days" from five as a way to ensure more classroom time for Ohio's students.

Emily McCord speaks to Dayton Business Journal editor, Don Baker, in the week's edition of PoliticsOhio. They discuss the impact of John Kasich's election on the Dayton business community, plans for Ohio's Third Frontier Program, and Kasich's commitment to privatizing the Ohio Department of Development and what that may mean for the region.
