UGN's article and letter stating Indiana lost out to Ohio because because "Indiana was a little slow out of the gate to respond to our letter sent to Gov. Mike Pence and did not show the level of energy that it historically has," showed UGN was surprised by our lack of aggressiveness.

The article went on to say Ohio attracted four times more new businesses last year, 480 new facilities with at least $1 million in new investments. We also lagged far behind Illinois, Michigan and Kentucky in attracting new business investment, and Illinois and Michigan had three times more big economic development projects.

Great job, Mike! I guess it's more important to create a new education board loaded with his friends and high salaries than it is to create job growth.

Can you say "One Term" Mike?
