      • How are we doing in Ohio? Very optimistic.
      • We all have our own challenges because of the virus, not just a Governor
      • Lessons of this pandemic- Never want to be in a position where supply chain breaks because we do not produce products in this country
      • The Governor’s family ran a seed company. His dad always told him to check the quality of each delivery by checking the bags on the bottom of the pile. Fast forward 40 years as Governor of Ohio. Broker found some N95 masks in California, 5 million masks - when inspector looked at them (at the bottom of the pile) it was junk.
      • We had to make tough decisions early - cuts in spending, froze hiring, just passed balanced budget. Rainy day fund was not touched.
      • Able to cut taxes by $2billion. Three weeks ago bond rate is highest since 1970.
      • Tough time for businesses - able to take from workers comp and paid out $8billion to private businesses
      • Ohio economy is moving - biggest challenge is to get workers. Site Selection magazine gave us the Governor’s Cup the last two years - most growth of all states
      • Ohio has great location - within a day’s drive can get to 60% of America
      • H2Ohio program started when Governor DeWine started to preserve Lake Erie
      • Infrastructure- broadband expansion and water expansion - with federal and state funds
      • Key to future: business expanding into Ohio and first question is always, “Do you have the people?”
      • Main focus every day is education. Includes training of adults - TechCred. State will pay for extra training so employees can advance.
      • Mrs.DeWine - 2018 she started work with Imagination Library, our club started that same year supporting the initiative. We need to read to children - testing of children showed 15 point increase in kids who have had people reading to them.
      • Mrs.DeWine used a few of Dolly Parton’s recipes in her latest cookbook
      • Pickaway Co. Has over 1,500 children signed up now
      • State will be matching any donations given to the Imagination Library
      • How can we encourage people to get back to work? What we don’t know is with the disruption the virus has caused, what are the reasons people are not working.
      • If we are going to move forward as a state, can’t leave anyone behind. Start with kids - how do we introduce work life to middle school, etc. to see what manufacturing is? Co-op programs, etc. to see what kids like and what they want to do.
      • Investments increased in 2-yr colleges and tech centers
      • Business community has to work directly with the education system
      • Drug programs - if there are ideas we have, email the Governor. Mike@silverdollarbaseball.com.
      • Answers are complex: education, treatment, law enforcement and have to get tough with China. China producing the fentanyl which goes to Mexico and then comes here.
      • Silent epidemic - mental health challenges of our young people. Money is in the budget to help get the kids the help they need.
      • Since January 2021, of all the people in the hospital because of COVID, 98% of those people not vaccinated. 2% were.
      • 12yr olds and above vaccinated - Pickaway Co. 53%. State wide 61.5%.
      • We will not force people to get vaccinated, but it is the ticket to get out of this
      • Children’s Hospitals have asked schools to enforce mask wearing. The science is clear because it’s been tested.
      • Movement of people coming into the mid-west from both coasts
      • Many thanks to Dan and Esther Fouts for bringing their longtime friends, Governor Mike DeWine and his wife Fran, to meet with Circleville Noon Rotary meeting.

        From left are Tony Chamberlain, Rotary President, Esther Fouts, Governor and Mrs. DeWine, Program Chair, Dan Fouts.
