COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio Gov. John Kasich wants to deliver the last of his annual State of the State speeches in Westerville, not far from his home in Genoa Township.
According to the Columbus Dispatch, Kasich has requested approval from lawmakers to give the speech March 6 at Otterbein University in Westerville.
The speech assessing Ohio's status is traditionally delivered to the legislature, with Supreme Court justices and other state officeholders and officials in attendance.
Kasich took the address out of Columbus for the first time in state history with his 2012 speech in Steubenville.
Since then, he has always given the address away from the Statehouse, visiting Sandusky, Lima, Medina, Wilmington and Marietta.
