Gov. John Kasich said he’ll be talking to General Motors about its decision to shut down the assembly plant in Lordstown, potentially putting 1,500 people out of work. He’s sounding like all isn’t lost even if the plant closes.
Kasich said he’s talked to GM about how the Lordstown-made Chevy Cruze wasn’t very profitable.
“I had a sense that there wasn’t this kind of a decision coming at this point,” he said.
But in the end, he said there isn’t much the state can do.
