Governor Kasich Re-Positions Unconstitutional Staffer

Governor John Kasich moved his out-of-state development director into the new position of job-creation director amid allegations that the earlier appointment was illegal.

Gov. Kasich said that challenges to Mark Kvamme‘s appointment were a distraction. Kwamme, a noted venture capitalist, is based in Silicon Valley. ProgressOhio.org filed a lawsuit, claiming that Kwamme’s California residency violated the Ohio Constitution.

The governor has named James Leftwich as the new director of the Ohio Department of Development. Leftwich has worked for six years at the Dayton Development Coalition, one of the state’s leading economic development organizations.
