Trying to get anything out of the Kasich team regarding the governor's proposed 2011 budget is all but impossible.
That even means trying to obtain comment AFTER he releases the budget on Tuesday.
Requesting details prior to a planned Wednesday late morning tele-conference with the director of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources has not been easy, either.
Just how reporters are going to be able to ask thoughtful questions of the director without first having the vitals remains a mystery.
Here's hoping that Kasich and Co. understands the best government is open government.
Unfortunately, leaders such as Richard Nixon never quite learned about transparency in government. Hopefully, Kasich and his appointees will.
