“Kasich said Chesapeake’s announcement is ‘huge news for Ohioans, and I’m simply thrilled to hear it. I’m especially glad that this can mean a shot-in-the-arm for eastern Ohio.’ ”“ ‘I believe that we could be at the beginning of a new and extended positive chapter in Ohio’s economy, and it’s essential we properly marshal our economic development, job training, environmental and regulatory assets to make this work right and work well for Ohio,’ Kasich said.”
