Jon Husted: States must focus on high tech future

Husted said Ohio must keep up with the changing nature of technology. "The next governor is going to have to figure out how we win that future because the states that do a good job with it, they'll be the prosperous ones, they'll be the ones that create the new jobs, and the states that train the people for those jobs, well, they'll win," Husted said. "But if you don't, you'll fall behind."

John Kasich: Replace "Rust Belt" with Cloud computing and 3-D printing

[We need] to diversify Ohio's economy and achieve a crossover of sorts where we can maintain a vibrant manufacturing climate. We want to continue to do the steel. We want to do the cars. We want to do all those things. We maintain a vibrant manufacturing company, but we inspire a fire for cutting edge companies and technologies that have the greatest potential for job growth.

The biggest businesses in America have less employees. Look at the ones that are really skyrocketing in this country. Cloud computing, 3-D printing. 3-D printing, have you ever seen it? It's amazing what it means and what it can mean. Telemedicine and the medical devices that make it possible, logistics, financial services, IT services. These are the cutting-edge industries we must have in Ohio. They just can't be somewhere else.

And we can't continue to be known as the rust belt. No one likes rust. We need the new industries. We need the new economy in this state.

Bob Taft: New programs for high-tech skills training

Ohio’s workers must be trained and retrained to meet the demands of the 21st Century. Therefore, we’ll expand Jobs Challenge funding to enable two-year campuses to provide more training courses. We will create the Higher Skills Partnership to marshal the resources of two-year colleges and career centers, to jointly align and market their training services for Ohio businesses.

Bob Taft: $52M to support high-tech research

More Ohioans with higher skills are needed to attract the high tech jobs of the future, and we have an ambitious technology agenda. The Ohio Plan will provide $40 million to support research and development in bio, nano and information technology. A new Biomedical Facilities Fund will provide $12 million to leading research institutions. And our Technology Action Fund will strengthen our ability to compete for federal research dollars and provide funds for promising technology initiatives.
