I am pleased that the Ohio Turnpike was not leased to a third party.

I just wish that it could have become a FREE road, like was promised when it was built (after the bonds were paid off). At that time, it was deemed a cash cow, and the tolls became permanent.

Everyone's a critic, but nobody can deny that Kasich has done a terrific job.
