COLUMBUS – Governor John R. Kasich and Lt. Governor Mary Taylor issued a resolution in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 18, 2016. The resolution recognizes “his legacy of honor, integrity and commitment to community” that has endured for nearly 50 years.
“Dr. King’s leadership and courage were instrumental to the success of the civil rights movement and his fight for equality inspired a generation of change; and despite acts of violence against himself, his family and his property, Dr. King continued to speak out against racism and hatred wherever it existed and encouraged others to create a world where individuals ‘will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character,’” said Kasich and Taylor in the resolution.
