COLUMBUS: Ohio's incoming governor says information on people applying for jobs with his administration will be released once he takes office.
Republican John Kasich told reporters on Tuesday that after meeting with attorneys he concluded he can't win a battle to keep the names and resumes private.
Kasich says he felt strongly about trying to protect the identities of applicants because he didn't want them to get in trouble with their current employers.
The governor-elect says he has been ''mystified'' and ''shocked'' by criticism over his preference to keep the information secret.
Kasich says the lawyers told him the resumes will become public record when he's sworn in as governor on Jan. 10.
