Hi! I am the Ohio state governor. My name is John Kasich. I was first elected by the citizens of Ohio in 2010 and I was re-elected again in 2014! I am going to walk you through what my job entails!
The state of Ohio has 3 branches of government. As governor, I am the head of the executive branch.
This is the Ohio Statehouse located in downtown Columbus. This is where my office is located.
This is my office. Some of my job duties include enforcing state laws, working on the state budget, appointing leaders, and vetoing or signing state bills.
I work with the other two branches of government. My favorite job is to sign or veto a bill. I have 10 days to decide what I want to do. If I sign a bill it becomes a STATE law!
I enjoy my job as Ohio governor, head of the executive branch. However, I am currently serving my second term (that's all I'm allowed to serve) and in 2018 someone else will will run for governor. I wonder who the people of Ohio will elect! I enjoyed giving you a brief tour today!
