CINCINNATI (AP) - The Democratic candidate for governor is campaigning through southern Ohio, focusing on what he says are residents hurt by the incumbent’s economic policies.

Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Executive Ed FitzGerald says cuts in local government funding are among policies that have hurt public employees and other residents and that the state’s recovery is lagging.

Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) says Ohio has been creating jobs, cutting taxes and closing budget shortfalls over the last four years.

FitzGerald said in Cincinnati on Friday that the governor has helped the wealthiest Ohioans at the expense of the middle class.

FitzGerald was scheduled Saturday to be at an International Association of Fire Fighters training demonstration in Cincinnati. He also had events planned in Lebanon (LEB’-uh-nun), Wilmington and Jackson.
