Acknowledgeing Myers' dismal political failures in his previous attempts to become elected to Toledo School Board, Governor Shankland laughed, and said " It's nowhere but up for that boy, y'all heah me ?"

Ohio Jobless Rate Soars Under Democrat Leadership

Increased unemployment and business exodus plagues state
