    Looking at a regionally funded zoo better matching users with cost is reasonable. The other question is if the downtown zoo would really be a party venue for businesses at taxpayer’s expense.

    It is also fair to question Kasich’s record with respect to recovering all the jobs lost in the Great Recession and the types of jobs created. The cuts to education and anti-schools agenda of Republicans also harmful to most Ohioans.
