Cincinnati City Council member P.G. Sittenfeld - joined by elected officials from several of Ohio's major cities - has created a web site to drum up public support to restore all of the the nearly $3 billion in cuts to the Local Government Fund made by Gov. John Kasich and the Ohio legislature two years ago.
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.
