Mercer County Republicans had a chance to hear from Governor John Kasich tonight at the annual Reagan Day Dinner in Celina.
Kasich spoke about anything from Ohio's comeback in job creation to setting higher standards for education.
Surprisingly, he didn't talk about the problems with Grand Lake St. Marys.
The state has literally poured millions of dollars of chemicals into the lake in an effort to help reduce the phosphorus that causes a toxic algae that has appeared for the past several summers.
Your News Now pressed Kasich about what kind of commitment the state is prepared give in order to get the lake cleaned up.
"We promise we will think as aggressively as we can. We think about ways we can be effective here. But anybody who promises a fix is like somebody promising what the weather is going to be next week. We're spending a lot of time on it and it's important because our waterways, our lakes all over Ohio are important. If we can learn things from Grand Lake St. Marys it can help us on Lake Erie.... It's all good." said Kasich.
As the weather warms up, Grand Lake St. Marys officials are keeping a close eye on the health of the lake as we approach the Memorial Day weekend.
