Former Ohio Governor John Gilligan, who is turning 90 this week, recently told The Columbus Dispatch that he thinks the new Republican Governor, John Kasich, is taking the wrong approach in our state.

Gov. Gilligan, who was governor in the 1970s, introduced the state income tax, which Gov. Kasich has talked about eliminating. Gov. Gilligan stressed that closing Ohio’s deficit is more important than lowering taxes, and said that he would reduce the deficit through a mix of spending cuts and tax increases.

Gov. Kasich refuses to respond to Gov. Gilligan’s criticisms, but he said he would call and wish the former governor happy birthday.
