The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/UjYLXk ) reports that the trip by Kasich to the annual global economic summit in the Alps will be tied to his plan to better align worker-training programs to meet the needs of advanced manufacturers.

It will be the first overseas trip by an Ohio governor since then-Gov. Bob Taft went to Mexico in October 2006.

Kasich's staff is still pulling together details of his stay at the Jan. 23-27 forum. The event will draw some of the world's richest and most powerful people to discuss an array of economic issues.

Taxed Enough Already

How much is this costing us?

Sounds solid to me. If Ohio is going to poise itself to attract global manufacturers, we need to be able to provide an appropriately trained workforce. The networking alone that he will have the opportunity to do justifies the money spent, in my opinion.

Must be taking some money there to hide before his taxes go up ; ))))

"The privatized JobsOhio will pay for Kasich and his aides to attend the forum."

If Gov. Kasich can network some jobs for OH, maybe even the liberals will be appreciative.
