Kasich Statement on Resignation of Speaker John Boehner

COLUMBUS – Today Governor John R. Kasich issued the following statement on the decision of Speaker John Boehner to resign his position:

“Ohio and America are stronger today because of John Boehner.  I’m proud that he’s my friend and that I served with him during a time of tremendous transformation and growth for our nation.  He led ably then and as Speaker later because he listened to different views, respected the institution, and most important, respected the American people.  He grew up humbly, overcame big obstacles to pull himself up by his bootstraps and never forgot where he came from.  He leaves a legacy of unparalleled integrity and steady, mature leadership during difficult times that will be a model for future Speakers and anyone interested in public service.”
