MEDINA, Ohio (AP) - Several dozen people in Ohio are demonstrating against the governor’s policies as he prepares to deliver his State of the State address.

Protesters gripped signs Monday along a sidewalk near the site of Gov. John Kasich’s (KAY’-siks) speech at the Performing Arts Center in Medina (meh-DY’-nuh).

Jamie Fant, of Dayton, a retired corrections officer, says he believes Kasich has not done enough for the working-class people of the state.

Fant said Kasich’s tax cuts have favored wealthier individuals.

Kasich is expected to emphasize Ohio’s recent gains in private-sector jobs and lay out his latest ideas for benefiting the state’s economy.

The first-term governor has said he’ll work to further reduce Ohio’s income tax rate, a goal set out in his 2010 campaign.
