Lt. Governor Husted remarks on the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

COLUMBUS— Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted delivered the keynote address at the 34th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Celebration.  He noted the importance of understanding diversity and the idea that all are created equal.

“Dr. King knew that one of the things the world needs most is for all of us to gain a greater understanding of the people around us – the struggles, challenges, and realities that we all face every day in our lives,” the Lt. Governor said. “One thing I admire most about him was his ability to help people grasp that concept and to convince others that until we gained that greater understanding, America could not live up to its potential and its promise.”

The Lt. Governor also presented awards to four individuals and three non-profit organizations for their dedication to community service and for furthering the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


Jon Husted is the 66th Lt. Governor of Ohio having taken office alongside Governor Mike DeWine on January 14, 2019. Learn more at
