Governor campaigns in Clermont County

Governor Ted Strickland held a fund raising event for his campaign Monday night at VFW Post 9630 in Batavia Township.

The Governor spoke on the importance of education funding and his plans to balance the 2012 biennial budget.

Strickland said the education of Ohio’s children is of vital importance for the future of the state and while surrounding states have cut their education budgets and increased college tuition he has increased tuition and frozen college funding slightly for the past two years.
