Democratic candidate to talk at Ohio township meet

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Democratic governor candidate Ed FitzGerald plans to speak to government officials who represent about a third of Ohioans.

The Cuyahoga County Executive's campaign says he will address the Ohio Township Association meeting in Columbus on Thursday. FitzGerald plans to focus on local government funding during his talk to the group of township trustees and other officials.

Ohio has more than 1,300 townships.

FitzGerald is the presumptive Democratic nominee to oppose Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) in November.
