COLUMBUS, Ohio - Governor Ted Strickland is urging Governor-elect John Kasich to reconsider his stance on the passenger rail.
Kasich has vowed to kill the project, calling it a waste of money.
"Many Ohioans are still out of work," Strickland wrote in a message to Kasich. "We badly need new jobs in Ohio and cannot afford to squander significant job creation opportunities. I urge you not to begin your administration by foregoing significant near- and long-term employment opportunities for struggling Ohioans."
The passenger rail would connect Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus and Cleveland.
Kasich will be sworn in as Ohio's Governor in January.
