Columbus Vote 2010 Kickoff

Saturday, June 5

11 a.m.

Columbus/Grandview Heights Coordinated Campaign Office, 747 Chambers Road, Columbus, OH 43212

The November election is only five months away. Organizing for American has identified a clear path to success: Get as many as possible of the 15 million folks who voted for the first time in 2008 back to the polls. Engaging them early in the year is the best way to ensure their participation, so on June 5 OFA volunteers will be knocking on doors in our area and across the U.S. and calling first-time 2008 voters to ask them to commit to voting again in November.

Kasich: I don't need your people

Kasich on all-white cabinet: No qualified candidates

John Kasich is the first Ohio governor since the 1960s to start his term by appointing an all-white cabinet. (And only five are women.) His reason? He couldn't find "qualified candidates." Sound familiar?

After an outcry, he has appointed one minority member -- Michael Colbert, who is black -- as director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. But Colbert had previously been serving as interim director of the social welfare agency.

When the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus offered to help Kasich diversify his cabinet choices, he told them, "I dojohn kasich jpgn't need your people." His staff later said he meant Democrats, not people of color. What?

State Senator Nina Turner (D-District 25, Cleveland) recalls Kasich's rebuff (from the Jan. 31, 2011, Ed Show on MSNBC). She points out that cabinet positions call for administrative skills, not agreement with Kasich's political outlook. And surely there are qualified people of color in Ohio, or in the country, who are experienced administrators.

Kasich's stance shows "strong insensitivity," Turner noted. We'll say. After all, Kasich already has skipped a remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr. -- and issued a proclamation honoring the civil rights leader on St. Patrick's Day.
