A year ago Governor Kasich appointed Judge Craig Baldwin to the Fifth District Court of Appeals. Craig has done a wonderful job. Please visit his campaign committee’s facebook page and help retain Judge Craig Baldwin.
We also have some amazing justices and judges up for election this year. Justice Judith French and Justice Sharon Kennedy. See our events page regarding an event for Justice Kennedy o March 13th. We have our own Licking County Judge Duke Frost and Judge Richard Wright in Common Pleas/ Domestic Relations Court, as well as our Common Pleas Court Judge Tom Marcelain and Common Pleas/Probate Court Judge Robert Hoover. Please remember to support our judges. Thank you.
The Licking County Republican Party has endorsed the above mentioned judges, Good Luck.
What an honor to have Governor John Kasich speak in Licking County. We know that our country would not have had a balanced budget years ago with out Governor Kasich’s efforts when he was in the US House – and he has brought that expertise to the Governor’s office – - eliminating an 8 billion dollar budget shortfall, cutting taxes, reducing unemployment and streamlining services – - all at the same time and in 3 short years. Kasich and his administration know how to get the job done. 4 years ago the people of Ohio wanted change and elected John Kasich because they knew he could make it happen. Today, Ohio is much better off – We NEED to keep the momentum – - We NEED to keep Governor Kasich.

Update from Tim Bubb, County Commissioner - This past year saw continued progress in cooperation with our Community Improvement Corporation (CIC) ‘Grow Licking County’ in bringing additional development and jobs to the County; as well as while providing new and improved County services, and remaking public buildings to better serve this growing community. The County, through its Emergency Management staff, finished construction and is currently finalizing the phone, electronic and high tech radio connections to bring on-line the new Licking County Regional Communications Center (LCRCC). The LCRCC will be one of the most sophisticated emergency communications and dispatching in the state, including the statewide MARCS emergency services network. In 2013 we saw a number of positive developments in the area of economic and workforce development… In the Etna Corporate Park Speed FC moved into a 766-thousand sq. ft. distribution and customer service facility with 242 jobs retained and some 250 new jobs created. In the same western Licking County industrial park Menlo Logistics created a 318-thousand sq. ft. logistics and fulfillment center retaining 24-jobs and creating 63 full time positions. Also in Etna, Ascena Brands expanded their facility here by 550-thousand sq. ft., and will add 225 or more full time
positions to their current staff of some 300. Leaders at the Newark Campus of Ohio State and COTC announced plans for $25-million STEM Education facility. Enhancing workforce development, ground will be broken for the STEM Center this fall and with completion in 2015. Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. will open a development center focused on auto industry technology and process enhancements. 30-new jobs will be created at this facility in Hebron. Factors in Goodyear’s decision were quality local workforce and the location in the 79-70 high tech/development corridor. At the Port Authority site in Heath the German Company ‘xperion’ will locate its first North American plant in a 50-thousand sq. ft. building currently under construction. This ‘greenfield’ facility will manufacture composite auto tanks for use with compressed natural gas. 60-new jobs will be created. On November 1st Owens Corning celebrated its 75th anniversary. Fiberglas was invented here. O-C’s largest manufacturing plant, in Newark, employees 575 and their Granville Science & Tech Center has a staff of 400. In 2013 the Newark Plant, with the assistance of the County’s Opportunity Links, began new hiring as residential insulation manufacturing resumed. In 2013 the ATEX multi-state liquid ethane pipeline was extended through Licking County. Working with ODNR, to gain permission to bore under the Licking River and a section of Black Hand Gorge, Enterprise Pipeline donated a million dollars for reconstruction of the Black Hand Gorge bike and recreation trail. The Boeing Company committed to Licking County through 2021 with a 7-year extension of their contract with the Port
Authority in Heath. Boeing leases the former Air Force Base clean rooms and advanced manufacturing space for the repair and overhaul of aerospace guidance and navigation systems.
