In The Region:
  • Kasich has about $8 million to fight off re-election challenges
  • GOJO buys a French company
  • Cleveland's new budget revealed
  • UH and the Cleveland Browns make it official
  • Cincinnati abortion clinic stays open
  • Kasich has about $8 million to fight off re-election challenges
    Gov. Kasich’s re-election campaign raised nearly $4.5 million over the last six months, and is heading into this year’s election with nearly $8 million in the bank.

    In his annual finance report, Kasich reported that he raised more than $9 million since he took office in 2011. His likely Democratic opponent, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, has not yet filed his report.

    Today is the deadline for the annual reports on contributions to Ohio political campaigns, and – besides governor -- it’s expected to shed light on the relative strengths of the race for treasurer, auditor, secretary of state and attorney general. All those offices are now held by Republicans who were swept into office in 2010.

    GOJO buys a French company
    GOJO Industries has bought a French company that makes professional hygiene, cosmetics and disinfectant products. GOJO has not yet revealed the financial details of the deal with Laboratoires Prodene Klint. Prodene Klint has about 300 employees, and the Beacon Journal is reporting some of them may be coming to Akron, where Gojo is based. GOJO makes Purell and other brands of hand cleaners, soaps and sanitizers.

    Cleveland's new budget revealed
    Mayor Frank Jackson is laying out his budget at the Northeast Ohio Media Group today and it once again allots the lion’s share to public safety. Cleveland.com is reporting that $309 million, or 57 percent, is being set aside for services such as police, fire, ems and courts, 12 percent for public works and 2 percent for building and housing.

    UH and the Cleveland Browns make it official
    University Hospitals has officially taken over from the Cleveland Clinic as the healthcare partner of the Cleveland Browns. The team and the hospital confirmed the deal today, though word began to leak out last month. Today’s statement does not include how much partnership is worth,  but The Plain Dealer reported last month that sources pegged it at $30 million over 10 years.  

    Cincinnati abortion clinic stays open
    A judge has ruled that a suburban Cincinnati abortion clinic can stay open while it’s appealing a state order to shut down. State health officials ordered the Sharonville clinic's closure, saying it did not have proper transfer agreements with a hospital. Ohio law requires such agreements, but also prohibits public hospitals from signing them. The state has shut down three other clinics over the last year. But one of them, in Cuyahoga Falls, is trying to reopen.
