COLUMBUS

Republican Gov. John Kasich and his 2014 Democratic challenger, Cuyahoga County executive Ed FitzGerald, were among state and local officials across Ohio who commemorated the legacy of civil-rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

Songs, prayers, service projects and parades were among ways King’s life and impact were celebrated today.

Kasich spoke at a music-filled birthday breakfast in Columbus and issued a proclamation honoring King’s groundbreaking achievements and compassion.

In Cleveland, FitzGerald joined with City Year team members and volunteers at Franklin D. Roosevelt Academy to freshen the school’s appearance and paint murals. It was part of a nationwide day of service.

A march and memorial at the University of Dayton kicked off a week of lectures, film screenings and related activities planned there.
