The GOP campaign for governor appears poised to move into high gear: Republican insiders say John Kasich will tap State Auditor Mary Taylor to be his running mate. More than a hundred layoffs among Cleveland safety forces leave some wondering why the mayor even bothered expanding the forces last year. On the Thursday morning reporters' roundtable, join Dan Moulthrop and guests for analysis of those stories, plus the power debacle at Hopkins, a new deal for the med mart, and why two big local companies are considering pulling up stakes.

I believe the American Greetings trial balloon about moving out of Brooklyn is a diversion to get the discussion going about concessions that will benefit the company. If I hear correctly the city income tax went up .25%. For someone earning $100,000 per year(few are), their tax burden goes up $250. If AG leaves town, virtually everyone will lose their jobs. Companies don’t care about employees paying an additional .25% income tax. What does AG really want? Is this a smoke screen to allow them to say they were “forced” out of Ohio for a more executive-friendly locale?
