Not even freezing rain could deter the 200+ people who attended Gov. Kasich’s formal swearing-in last night. At midnight, Chief Justice Maureen O’Conner administered Kasich’s oath of office in the Ohio Senate chambers (along with member of his cabinet).
Kasich’s inaugural ball will be held tonight at the Southern Theatre, which coincides with the Buckeye’s championship game. But he has arranged for big-screen TVs to be on-site this evening for game-watchers.
“As Buckeye fans and alumni, we would never want to miss seeing our team play for the National Championship!” his New Day Committee announced on inaugural stationery.
