A dynamic economy begins with a good education.
We all share a common goal - we want our children to succeed.
Ohioans are practical. We're a can-do people. Give us a problem, we'll give you a solution.
If we are to create tomorrow's jobs, we can't remain frozen in time in yesterday's tax system.
We must ensure our system of higher education offers world-class quality for a world-class economy.
We stand strong together - as Americans - many cultures, races and faiths, but one nation under God.
We live in a land like no other - a land of freedom and opportunity unparalleled on the face of the globe.
Yet in this global economy, no jobs are safe. High-speed Internet connections and low-cost, skilled labor overseas are an explosive combination.
Let us seize the special opportunity that is ours to act boldly and decisively at a time when the eyes of our fellow citizens, both present and future, are upon us.
What happened on September 11 compels us to focus on who we are as Americans, what we stand for, what really matters in our lives - family, friends, faith and freedom.
