Governor Kasich addresses Butler County crowd and touches on heroin addiction issues
At the recent Lincoln Day dinner, Governor John Kasich spoke about his commitment to do the right thing even when it may be unpopular to help those who are less fortunate than others. One of his commitments is to train every young person to be prepared to enter the workforce. He mentioned the partnerships Butler County has forged with our technical schools and universities to reach those goals. He also described the effects of the heroin epidemic on the children of addicts, the criminal justice system and the countless ways this societal problem creates long-lasting financial burdens to our taxpayers.

Butler County has been building multi-agency, citizen and community alliances to create effective programs and strategies.
